  • 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 …
  • Hi Dirk, Unfortunately, using this method, there is no way to prevent the detail band from printing over the page layer. By definition, a page layer will print "behind" all main report components.
  • Hi Utzel, The ScreenDevice renders the page(s) and background all as a single image. If you would like to extract individual pages as images, I suggest using the ImageDevice. This will give you just the page image without background and scaled as…
  • Hi Dirk, Try using the summary band with AlignToBottom set to True. This should give you the effect you are after. Another option you might try is using a Page Layer with its PageSetting set to psLastPage. This will print behind the report so yo…
  • Hi Emile, This is not a known issue. Are you able to recreate this behavior on your machine? If so, please provide the exact steps we need to recreate it so we can track down the problem. An example would also be very helpful. Also, any more in…
  • Hi Tom, We're working towards releasing RB support for 10.4 Sydney. We’ll send e-mail notifications and post an announcement as soon as it is available.
  • For those following this thread, the issue was due to the CachePages property being set to True. This will (by definition) use memory to cache all generated pages. Disabling the outline/thumbnails also increased the speed and efficiency for a repo…
  • Hi Yusuf, We're working towards releasing RB support for 10.4 Sydney. We’ll send e-mail notifications and post an announcement as soon as it is available.
  • We are researching a solution to this and will post here once one is found. Thanks for pointing this out.
  • There is no debugger included with RAP. If you would like to debug your RAP code you have a few options... 1. Use CodeSite by Raize Software (http://www.raize.com). There is an example of integrating CodeSite with RAP located in the \RBuilder\Demos…
  • Hi Scott, Looking at your code, the generated PDF file is being saved to the "reportPath" location. This is where your user will be able to access the file if needed. ReportBuilder does not delete or stream the PDF file automatically so unless th…
  • Hi Hervé, QRCode support was added for ReportBuilder 15. Please consider updating your version of ReportBuilder to obtain this as well as hundreds of new features and enhancements. http://rbwiki.digital-metaphors.com/category/general/whats-new/
  • Hi Scott, By default the PDF file is not opened after it is generated by ReportBuilder. Assuming you are using the RBWiki example on how to merge multiple reports into a single PDF, you will notice the following line of code: lPDFDevice.PDFSettin…
  • Hi Mauro, The latest version of ReportBuilder (20.02) supports PDF 1.7 and many of its features. You can find a list of all the features added since RB 12 in the link below. We hope you will consider upgrading . http://rbwiki.digital-metaphors.c…
  • Hi Leonardo, We only have resources to provide tech support to Delphi developers with an active ReportBuilder license. If you meet these requirements, please send license details to support@.
  • Hi Sergio, We only have resources to provide tech support to Delphi developers with an active ReportBuilder license. If you meet these requirements, please send license details to support@.
  • Hi Vlad, Please let us know which version of ReportBuilder and Delphi you are using before every question. We only have resources to provide tech support to Delphi developers with an active ReportBuilder license. If you meet these requirements, pl…
  • Hi Yong, Calling the Add routine of TStrings in Delphi will not retain the line break information. Try setting the Memo.Lines.Text property instead. Memo1.Lines.Text := ppRichText1.PlainText;
  • Hi Thomas, See the following article on how to enable all QRCode versions. http://rbwiki.digital-metaphors.com/rcl/barcode/qr-code-enable-all-versions/
  • Hi Thomas, It is possible to simply place a TppImage on top of a QRCode in ReportBuilder to get this effect. Below is an example of a QRCode with an image. - use 2DBarCode to define the QRCode - use Image to load the logo and size it. - selec…
  • Hi Yong, You can use the OnMailMerge event of the TppRichText component to access the resulting merged RTF or plain text. For your case, you will want to access the TppRichText.PlainText and add it to the Memo. Something like the following: proc…
