Save on exit of designer..

edited October 2016 in End User
Hi Team,

In my End User App, when I exit the Designer to Explorer from some of my reports, 3 of 6, I ALWAYS get the Confirm
dialog asking me if I wat to save changes to the report. Even though no changes have been made. Yet on the other 3
reports, no issue/question.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

Regards & TIA,
Ian

    Hi Ian,

    Try loading and re-saving each of the reports. Then load them again and test
    whether the Designer displays the confirm dialog.

    The Version is saved as a hidden report property. It might be the reports
    were created with an older version. For example, if you create a report with
    17.02 and then load it using 17.03, the confirm dialog will be displayed.

    Hi Nard,

    Thank you for the reply.

    Tried two routes..
    1. Save back to Explorer under a different name. - No good, same issue.
    2. Save to a file, ceate a new report, load the file and save into Explorer - Same problem.

    It doesn't affect the actual use of the reports, just an annoyance when saving.

    Hi Ian,

    Try adding RBuilder\Source o to the Delphi library path and build the
    project with debugging turned on.

    Open ppClass.pas, find the method TppCustomReport.SetModified and place a
    break point on the line

    FModified := Value;

    Run the project, when the debugger stops, check whether Value is True and if
    so, review the call stack. Perhaps that will provide a clue.

    Found it!

    I had a Company logo in the report. It was a .jpg. I noticed in the 'good' reports I had a different logo and they
    were .bmp.

    Converted the first logo to .bmp, replaced it into the problematic reports & all good now.

    Don't know if this is expected behaviour for .jpg files but there you have it.

    All fixed now.

    Regards & Tks,
    Ian
