  • Hi Ralf, The TppRichText.Paragraph is included in the RAP RTTI however it does not expose all its descendent properties such as the Tab property. If you would like to access these properties in RAP you will either need to enhance the RTTI logic or…
  • Hello, There is now a patch available for ReportBuilder 20.03 that addresses this issue. Registered RB 20 users with a valid software subscription can email support@digital-metaphors.com to receive the patch.
  • Hi Jim, See the following article on how to remove export formats. http://rbwiki.digital-metaphors.com/output/overview/removing-formats/
  • Hi Scott, The email feature in ReportBuilder can send emails in three ways: 1. Directly by connecting to a SMTP server. (ex. Gmail SMTP server via Indy). 2. Opening and/or sending from the default email client on the machine (i.e. Outlook). 3. Co…
  • Hi Shavez, ReportBuilder uses the default printer to measure text and graphics, then scales these values for the screen which is typically lower resolution. For this reason, the screen output and printed output are not always matched at certain zo…
  • Hi Arnaud, There is currently no way to automatically hide the print dialog when printing. I will add this to our list of possible enhancements for a future release. Currently you can access the OutputDialog property from the Report.BeforePrint…
  • Hi Arnaud, Take a look at demo 124 of the main reports demo for an example of manually sending ReportBuilder a list of pages to be printed. This is the same method used for the Page Range of the Printer Dialog. It uses the ppTextToPageList routine…
  • Hi Craig, I am still unclear about the issue. Please answer all the questions. Also, please send a simple example to support@ that demonstrates this issue so I can see exactly what is happening. 2. Where are you trying to rename the file? Which…
  • ppWWRichEd is the Infopower plugin for ReportBuilder. Support for images in Infopower RichTexts in PDF was added for RB 20. Please consider upgrading your version of ReportBuilder to obtain this as well as numerous other features and bug fixes sin…
  • Hi Jim, Which version of ReportBuilder are you using? Also, the ReportBuilder RichText does not support images by default. Which third-party RichText component are you using with ReportBuilder? (ex. Infopower, WPTools, etc.)
  • Hi Craig, We are going to need more information about your application to track this down. 1. Are you exporting each group to PDF using the Group.NewFile feature? 2. Where are you trying to rename the file? Which event? 3. If you remove all logic…
  • Hi Phil, We have not seen this behavior before. As a quick test, I created a new report and place a few labels set to fftText and exported to PDF. I was then able to open the PDF with Adobe Reader and edit the form fields as expected. Are you…
  • Hi Phil, The best place to see the z-order of the components in your report is the Report Tree in the Designer. For PDF, the form fields created first (or lower in the z-order) will be tabbed first. For instance, if you would like to tab from Fie…
  • Hi, If I understand correctly, you would like the subreport to be visible only for the first copy of the report, then hide it for subsequent copies. If this is the case, take a look at the following article/example. The example shows how to show/…
  • Hi Jens, The Report.PrinterSetup.PrinterNames property contains a list of all available printers. When selecting a printer, it is best to use this list or verify that the manually entered printer name exactly matches a name in this list.
  • Hi Andreas, See the following article on how to control the end-user environment. In your case, you will want to add daIDE and raIDE to your uses clause. http://rbwiki.digital-metaphors.com/end-user/fundamentals-end-user/registration-of-component…
  • Hi Craig, Images in PDF are automatically scaled to conserve space. Set the Report.PDFSettings.ScaleImages property to False to get a higher quality image.
  • There is now a patch available for RB 20.03 that addresses this issue. Registered customers with an active software subscription can email support@ to receive the patch.
  • Hi John, Thanks, I will add this for the next release.
  • Hi Tebele, I suggest contacting RichView support for this issue. It is likely that the "Document" property was removed for the newer version of TRichView and needs to be handled when an older template is loaded. If this is an issue with ReportBui…
  • Hi Junior, Which version of ReportBuilder and Delphi are you using? When you say "inside the report" do you mean in RAP code? This may be possible but would likely require a pass-thru function.
  • Hi Florian, Thank you for the information and example. A patch has been sent to your email address. Registered users with an active software subscription can email support@ to receive the patch.
  • Hi Eva, Which version of ReportBuilder are you using? RB 20 introduced the ability to add descriptions to PDF attachments. This is fully documented with code examples in the included help documentation under the TppPDFSettings.Attachments topic.
  • Hi Emile, The error you are getting implies the RB/TeeChart design-time packages are either not loaded or have not been installed. First be sure you have TeeChart installed for the version of Delphi you are using. Next, from Delphi, select Compo…
  • Hi Tom, There have been no (deliberate) alterations to the way stretchable components behave in ReportBuilder. Stretchable components should only stretch vertically. In my quick testing with a sample DBRichText, I was unable to recreate any horiz…
  • Hi Julien, Following your steps above, I was unable to recreate this behavior. Are you using a custom print dialog? ReportBuilder 20 introduced an updated print dialog which now separates between exporting to file and printing to the printer. Th…
  • Hi Utzel, First take a look at the TppPreview.PrintStateChangeEvent for how the cancel button is manipulated in the standard Preview. You will need to override, copy, and alter this code to hide the button rather than change the caption when the v…
  • Hi Utzel, Rather than altering the DeviceType, try creating your own TppImageDevice descendent. Also, you can implement the ImageDevice.OnAssignFilename event to take control over the default image naming (underscore + page number). Below is some…
  • Hi Utzel, Unfortunately due to the threading nature of the screen device, it is not possible to export to image and screen simultaneously. Since I'm guessing you only need an image of the first page, it would be fairly simple (and fast) to export …
  • Hi Yong, It is possible to save and load report templates to individual subreports within a report. See the following article/example on how to use a standard header/footer by loading report templates into subreports. This is similar to what you …
