New Blog Post: RESTful Reporting

Amounts not displaying

edited June 2016 in General
I am using delphi xe7, report builder version 16.02

after a report is displayed, i have switched the autosearch button to
display a custom filter dialog. The user can then refilter the report
and it will display in the preview window. I have been updating the
reports from delphi 7, 11.08 to this version.

In this version, on refilter, for DBCAlc and Variable components,
instead of displaying the amounts, it displays the field control name
for variables and the calculation type for dbCalc (so SUM(myfield)) for

The only way I have been able to fix it is to put a TppLabel control on
the form, then copy the variable or DBCalc amount into the label, make
the var/dbcalc invisible and make the label visible.

It seems to only happen on some reports which I think are using the text
pipeline component (but not 100% sure about that).

Have you ever seen this? Is there any other fix?

    Hi Jeff,

    This is not a known issue. If possible, please create a simple example
    that demonstrates this behavior and send it to in .zip format so we can test it with the
    latest version of ReportBuilder.
