  • Our printers here print the rotated label without any problem. Try installing the latest printer driver as a first step. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • What you can do is place the label in a region and set the region's color. The region has a pen property which you can set the style to clear so there won't be a border around your label. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • I was about to respond to your question yesterday, when windows decided to corrupt my registry/system files. Fun stuff. For your problem, what you could do is download this demo below and try to run it. I ran this demo sucessfully with D4 and RB …
  • We will support Delphi 6. The next maintenance release for Delphi 4 and 5 is scheduled to take place in sync with our Delphi 6 release. As a member of the Borland Technology Partner Program we will receive D6 as soon as it starts shipping. We exp…
  • If you are using PrintToDevices you may want to call the Reset method on the Viewer before printing the next report. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • The title band has a NewPage boolean property. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • Properties on draw commands, such as width and height, should have values in thousandths of millimeters. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • Is this in the screen preview? See the article below. Are there any regions/ subreports with the memo inside of it? I am curious to what other components are in the report. Take out all the other components, and let only the memo print. Does th…
  • See our TechTips newsgroup and look in the Formats and Devices thread for and article titled 'Controlling the Built-in Previewer.' Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • There is an issue when first report in an application loads there was a performance hit because some printer initialization logic was firing. On systems with slow printer drivers this caused a noticeable delay in loading. I'm sending a patch to you …
  • It is slower the first time, because RB must talk to the printer driver for the first time. As much information that RB needs about the printer should be cached, and hence it should lower the communications sent to the driver for subsequent actions…
  • Currently, the ShiftRelativeTo is not supported inside of a region. One solution is to remove all three memos from the region. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • There is a Readme file in the TeeChart directory in your RBuilder installation which explains the diifferent packages RB uses for Teechart. During the RB installation process, the install program detects which version of Teechart you have installed …
  • See our website www.digital-metaphors.com and look under the Friends | Data section and goto the Dade Plug-in page. There should be a link to the ASTA plug-in. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • The wheel mouse support is enabled with the driver I have installed. RB just doesn't have built in wheel mouse support yet. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • I'm using Intellipoint 3.1 on Win2K and it doesn't want to work automatically. Interesting. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • Mousewheel support isn't built into the previewer. This was researched at one time, but was pushed down on the to-do list, and hence, you found some commented code. However, a few customers have reported that the mousewheel is working for them on …
  • Occasionally, we have customers state that their reports are in some infinite state where page after empty page prints forever. There are a few items to check when this occurs. The TppReport.AutoStop property is the first thing to check. If this i…
  • We do not perform any changes to the beahvior of the extended type. I just searched all of our source for extended and didn't see anything that would change the extended behavior for the extended type. RB relies on Delphi to handle extended type n…
  • Are you saying that a Delphi variable declared as type Extended, when raised to a power yields a different result than when a TppVariable of type Extended and having the same value is raised to the same power? I just tried this with D5 and RB 5.56,…
  • Its prints correctly with 5.54 and 5.56. I previewed your template in 5.54 and 5.56, both at delphi design time and at runtime. You may want to double check to make sure you don't have any multiple RBuilder dcus lying around on your machine which a…
  • The @ isn't a special character. I put your text in a 5.56 report - it wrapped with no problem. So I tried it with 5.54 and still it wrapped correctly. Since you can reproduce it easily with a TppMemo, please save the report as an ASCII template …
  • You may want to look at the plain text to see if there is any control characters in the text. What if you take this text and place it in a non data aware TppMemo? If this shows the problem, then all we really need is the exact text from the db. A…
  • What version of RB and Delphi are you using? We have not heard of this behavior before. Can you send a demo to support@digital-metaphors.com Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • Sounds like you're using the dbText instead of a dbMemo. They are right next to each other on the component palette. A dbMemo has a Stretch property which will cause it to stretch vertically. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • What you can do is open the report at delphi design time. Set its template format property to ASCII. Then open the rtm up in a text editor and you can find the dataview by looking for its name. You'll see something like this for a dataview called…
  • Sounds like a candidate for subreports. Demo #51-52 use section style subreports in order to print different reports together as one. Use subreports when you want to print a report, one right after another. You could create a master detail relati…
  • You could create a group on the master linking field and place the master information in the group header. The group has a reprint header on subsequent pages setting in the groups dialog. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
  • The title band will only print once while a subreport is printing, since the subreport can print multiple detail records. Child type subreports don't support headers and footers. Try creating a group in the subreport to print the title information…
  • Another option is to toggle the visible property of two labels. Cheers, Jim Bennett Digital Metaphors
