Now that #1791 is provided in version 0.11.3, there should be a way to show a wiki formatted custom field in reports with a user defined column name. Currently WikiFormatting of a custom field shows in report only when "AS description" is used in SQL.

wiki_to_onliner patch for custom reports

comment:3 by nexus@…, 12 years ago

I was in need of creating URLs to our external wiki documentation system from custom reports. My solution was to simply add syntax which enables wiki_to_oneliner in columns which begins with '~'. You can try out my patch and see wheter it helps you

I was going to integrate this patch (better late than never :-), but ~ is not a valid character in an SQL identifer. It seems that we're stuck with letters, digits and the underscore. And adding more underscores as prefix or suffix isn't really an option.

So I'm looking for ideas how to flag a column for:

  • Wiki formatting as a one-liner
  • Full wiki formatting (like the description)

Ideally, one should be able to combine this with the row_ syntax for adding a line break after the column, and the _row_ syntax for a full-width column.

No new ideas, re-targeting.

What about __wiki__col? And maybe even __wikihtml__col and __wikioneliner__col.

In mailing list entries Trac Development > Error in Wiki-Page "Custom Reports Configuration" and Trac Users > Wiki Column in an ordinary table I had asked about that very feature.

As suggestion I would do it like other "Custom formatting columns" (see TracReports#Customformattingcolumns) and trigger formatting a DB column as wiki by naming it as __wiki__ (and maybe __wikioneline__ for full row).
