Report - Polygon Shape

The Polygon shape component creates custom polygon shapes by drawing and connecting lines, and can be used anywhere on a report. Select the Polygon shape on the Report Component Palette to make it active, click once to start a line and click to anywhere else to add additional corners. Click on the starting location to form a polygon shape. Once the polygon component is created, you can use the handles to change its size. Double click on any of the individual lines to change the size and shape of the selected line. You can also change its stroke style, color, and dash pattern by using its properties.
