    The Hatch data visualization displays the geometric hatch pattern. 

    When you select a Shape "images/design-reports/ 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.

    Using Data Visualizers, the hatch can be applied in TextBox, Shape, CheckBox, and Container control's 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.
