Report only showing names of the objects instead of their content

4 views (last 30 days)
Hello everyone!
I have a code generating a full report. But now the word file only gives me the name of the objects in the report and not the actual content like this:
Capture.PNG
Do anyone know where does this problem comes from?
My code is
rpt = Document('Report','docx');
%% title page generation
tp = TitlePage;
tp.Title = 'Report';
tp.Subtitle = 'This report is generated from the test.';
tp.Author = 'Jack'
append(rpt, tp);
%% Summary
ChapterRegression = Chapter;
ChapterRegression.Title = 'Summary';
append(rpt, ChapterRegression)
close(rpt)
My dotx template just have one Rich Text Content Control hole.
Thank you in advance!

You can not add Report API objects like TitlePage to a DOM Document. Use mlreportgen.report.Report instead of the DOM Document. You can add both DOM and Report API objects to a Report object.

I am sorry to bother.. but it is not explained how I should use this. For example
moveToNextHole(rpt.Document);
or
rpt.Document.CurrentPageLayout;
will give me an error, and I can't find anything about working with "underlying object" in Matlab...

I tried with the sample code below:
import mlreportgen.report.*
import mlreportgen.dom.*
% Create a report with custom template with a hole in it.
rpt = Report('output', 'pdf', 'myTemplate.pdftx');
open(rpt);
% Get the underlying DOM Document object and update the page size
doc = rpt.Document;
doc.CurrentPageLayout.PageSize.Height = '16in';
doc.CurrentPageLayout.PageSize.Width = '11in';
% Move to the custom hole and add content to it
doc.moveToNextHole();
add(rpt, Paragraph("Content to go in custom hole"));
% Close and view the report
close(rpt);
rptview(rpt);
If you are still getting an error, can you please share the error message.
