Preview always maximized

edited September 2017 in General

Is there a way to show the preview form of the report always maximized?
Even when formsize was changed the previous time it was shown (it seems to
remember this last setting)?

    Hi Stef,

    Currently the preview window size and placement is overwritten by the
    previously used values that are saved in the .ini file. The
    PreviewFormSettings.WindowState property is used before the .ini file is
    written to.

    There is definitely room for improvement with this and we have added it
    to our like of possible features to disable the .ini file feature so the
    PreviewFormSettings are always used.

    Currently you can override the .ini file usage by adding the following
    line of code to the Report.OnPreviewFormCreate event.


    procedure TForm1.ppReport1PreviewFormCreate(Sender: TObject);
    TppFormState.SaveWindowPlacement(ppReport1.PreviewForm, 'PreviewForm');


    Best Regards,
