Report does not find TcxPageControl

In an application that some time ago worked I added some features.
Since then when I print a report, I got an exception telling me that reportbuilder does not find the class TcxPageControl.
The Report is placed on a datamodule. The only TcxPageControl in the app is placed in a form that is dynamically created. At the time of the crash it does not exist.
The Datamodule contains no reference to any DevExpress components with the exception of a MemData table.
I have no idea why reportbuilder wants to read a class definition that it never uses.

  • After doing some investigation I finally found a way to bypass the problem.
    Reportbuilder always complained about missing class definition from one of the apps forms.
    When I changed TcxPageControl to TPageControl it even complained on that component.
    That form carrying the component was named 'PPForm'.
    When I change the name to anything else, for example to 'P1PForm', the problem is gone.
    The Name 'PPForm' seems to cause some clash inside Reportbuilder.
  • Hi Gerhard,

    I'm sorry but I'm unsure how this is a ReportBuilder issue :).

    TcxPageControl is a DevExpress component, it does not relate to ReportBuilder in any way and is not used or referenced by ReportBuilder. The Delphi component TPageControl is only used once in the entire product for the AutoSearch Dialog (in very rare cases). Also "PPFORM" is not something we use in our code either (performing a "Find in Files" on our entire source base shows this).

    My initial guess is that you have a corrupted form or datamodule definition that perhaps is referencing a component that no longer exists. You might try viewing this as text and see if you can find an issue.

    Best Regards,

    Nico Cizik
