  • Hi Scott, If you are just previewing, try using the Viewer.OnEndGenerate to determine when the report has been fully generated. Then make a call to Report.PreviewForm.Close. If you are exporting to a file or printing, the AfterPrint event should …
  • Hi Dirk, Which version of ReportBuilder and Delphi are you using? Is the text in a TppRichText component?
  • Hi Gerhard, This was a known issue that has been fixed for the latest version of ReportBuilder (20.02). Updating will solve the issue. We do not permit uploading files to our server. If you would like to display an image, we recommend using a fr…
  • Hi Ronald, There is no need to manually access the first record of a pipeline. Once the pipeline is accessed via code or a db-aware component, the first record will be returned. In order to automatically traverse, however, the pipeline will need …
  • Hi Jacques, ReportBuilder 20.02 was built with the latest version of Delphi (10.3 Update 3). Previous versions of Delphi had a backward compatibility issue that prevented some third party libraries built with the latest version from functioning co…
  • Hi Paola, You need to be sure you are adding the DADE plugin to your uses clause so it is registered at runtime. In your case it appears you are using DBExpress. Try adding daDBExpress to your uses clause.

  • Hi Johan, TRichView is not a Digital Metaphors product. I suggest contacting their support with a simple example so they can recreate the issue easily on their machines. If this turns out to be a ReportBuilder issue, they will contact us and we w…
  • This is not a built-in feature of ReportBuilder but I will add it to our list of possible enhancements for a later release. I created an example that performs this manually. Registered users can email support@ for the example.

  • Hello, Please update your profile with your first and last name. This is not a known issue with RB 20. Are you implementing the DetailBeforeGenerate event? If so, try commenting out that code and see if the error is resolved. If you are able to…
  • Hi Guillermo, I sent you a patch with further instructions on how to get this working. Registered users of RB 20.02 can email support@ for this patch.
  • Hi Michael, Upon further research, you are correct, this was a bug in RB 15 that was fixed in later versions. The LargeInt type was not being converted to 0 in the null case as it should in RAP. We simply added dtLargeInt to the list of types to …
  • There is a patch available for RB 20.02 that solves this issue. Registered users of 20.02 can email support@digital-metaphors.com to receive the patch.
  • Hi Michael, I installed some older versions (RB 14, RB 12) and did some testing with code similar to yours and SQL Server. The behavior of null values is the same as in RB 20. When retrieving a field value from the datapipeline, any null values a…
  • Hi Michael, Are you using RAP? Generally in Delphi, if you want to check for a null record value, you should use the IsNull property of the Field. See the following article on how this is done in RAP (and in Delphi) with ReportBuilder. http://rb…
  • Hi Steve, With the Enterprise or Server editions of ReportBuilder, an end-user can use RAP to accomplish this. I would suggest checking the value of the DB field directly using the FieldObjects property rather than the value of the DBText componen…
  • Hi Olaf, The tab order is controlled by the z-order in ReportBuilder. You can adjust the z-order using the "Bring Forward", "Move Backward" functions when right clicking on an object in the designer.
  • With the exception of our REST client components, ReportBuilder does not support the FMX platform. If you would like to learn more about the FMX capabilities of ReportBuilder, see the following blog post. http://www.digital-metaphors.com/restful-r…
  • Delphi 10.3 Update 3 is the latest version of Delphi. This is the version that our latest release (ReportBuilder 20.02) is built with. As mentioned above it is necessary to have at least Delphi 10.3 Update 2 installed in order to use the latest ve…
  • Hi Orhan, Which version and edition of ReportBuilder are you attempting to install? Are you installing a registered version or the trial? Please re-download the installation file from our website and try reinstalling being sure you have administr…
  • Hi Ricardo, Which version of ReportBuilder did you upgrade from and which version are you currently using? Please send a simple example that functions in earlier versions of ReportBuilder but does not in the current version and we'll research a …
  • Hi Nick, The "Print" Dialog for RB 20 consists of three parts. The Output Dialog (ppOutputDlg.pas), Print Dialog (ppPDlg.pas), and the Export Dialog (ppExportFileDlg.pas). The output dialog is essentially a container for the other two dialogs and…
  • Hi Paul, Thanks for the feedback. This feature is definitely on our "possible future feature" list.
  • Hi Ricardo, TppLabels will not automatically stretch vertically, they will need to be sized manually even if WordWrap is set to True. Try using a TppMemo if you need this ability. If you would like to add a manual line break, try using a CRLF com…
  • Hi Christopher, ReportBuilder provides PDF/A3 and PDF/A3-ZUGFeRD options. If you wish to export with the ZUGFeRD standard, you will need to use the later option. (PDFSettings.PDFAFormat property) The XML invoice is provided by the user. Attach …
  • Hi Jonas, ReportBuilder 20.01 is built with Delphi 10.3.2 (Delphi 10.3 Update 2) but will function with Delphi 10.3.3. This is stated on the download link when downloading the product. It was our understanding that Embarcadero fixed a backward co…
