The Ellipse shape component creates circles and ellipses that can be used in a report. Select the Rectangle shape on the Report Component Palette to make it active, and click and drag to draw an ellipse anywhere in the Report Designer. Once an ellipse or circle is created, you can use the handles to change its width and height. Hold Shift to force the shape into a circle. You can also change its stroke style, color, start angle, sweep angle, and more.
