The Hatch data visualization displays the geometric hatch pattern. 



=Hatch(Hatch style,Color1,Color2)


Using Data Visualizers, the hatch can be applied in TextBox, Shape, CheckBox, and Container controls from BackgroundImage - Value property and in Image control from Value property. The following example shows how Hatch background style can be simply applied to a control.



Set the following expression in the Shape control's BackgroundImage - Value property.

Paste into BackgroundImage property
Copy Code


When you select a Shape control on your report, in the Properties window, drop down the BackGroundImage - Value property and select <Data Visualizer...> to launch the dialog. The same is true if you select an Image control and drop down the Value property. To build the data visualizer expression, select the appropriate values for each of the options in the dialog.

Note: The Hatch style set using Data Visualizers is not displayed at design time.
