handlers

The ReportHandlers object(s) to attach to the resulting HTMLReportRef object.

.toHTML

The list of .toHTML overrides to attach to the HTMLReportRef object

.toDF

The list of .toDF overrides to attach to the HTMLReportRef object

.modifyDF

title

Title to assign to the new HTMLReportRef object. If not specified this value is inferred from the file.
