Report - Rectangle Shape

The Rectangle shape component creates a square or rectangle and can be used anywhere on a report. Select the Rectangle shape on the Report Component Palette to make it active, and click and drag anywhere in your Report Designer to create a rectangle shape. Once the rectangle component is created, you can use the handles to change its height and width. Hold Shift while dragging to create a square instead of a rectangle. You can also change its stroke style, color, and dash pattern.
