Overview

Yellowfin reports provide a great way of formatting data in a report column via Column Formatting. There are numerous predefined formatters that let you display values in unique ways besides text, numbers, date, etc, but the application also allows users to create their own custom formatters. This is done by formatting data types based on a user-defined Java class, which allows for parsing the returned database value and transforming it into another format. This guide will teach you how to do just that.

 

 

Implementation Overview

Implementation of a custom formatter can be done by extending Yellowfin’s CustomFormatter class and defining all the required functions. This is covered in detail in this section.
