  • 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…
  • Hi Dusten, We do not have much experience with this printer. ReportBuilder does not interact with any specific printer directly. It makes generic Windows API calls which are then interpreted by the printer driver. One option to try is to export …
  • Hi Judit, Which version of ReportBuilder are you using? An issue similar to this was fixed for RB 20.01. Please be sure you are using the latest version of ReportBuilder (RB 20.01 Build 2). If you are using the latest, please send a simple examp…
  • Hi George, Barcodes such as Code 39 (3 of 9) depend on the reader being able to detect the difference between a narrow and wide bar. You can alter the width of the narrow bar using the BarWidth property and likewise alter the width of the wide bar…
  • Hi Fabio, The latest version of ReportBuilder (RB 20) includes support for exporting to XLSX files with Delphi XE2 or later. Please consider upgrading your version of Delphi to obtain access to this (as well as many other) ReportBuilder features.
  • Hi Alejandro, The example is limited to reports with static height bands (other than the detail). I believe it was created long ago to solve a very specific case. If you are printing to a receipt printer, I suggest using the method described in t…
  • Hi Alejandro, Try setting the MobileExplorer.OpenReportInViewer to False and see if that lets you view the report. This will save the report to file and attempt to open it with your default PDF viewer installed on your phone. The MobileViewer uses…
  • Hi Alejandro, How are you running your android application? Is this on a separate device or inside an Android emulator? Are you sure the IP and port are open and available?
  • Hi Yong, Which version of ReportBuilder and Delphi are you using? If possible, please send a simple application demonstrating this issue (or just the metafile with the dotted line) to support@digital-metaphors.com in .zip format and we'll take a l…
  • Hi Eric, The DataDictionary requires the RB_Field and RB_Table datasets to be properly set up before it can function correctly. As a first test, try setting Designer.UseDataDictionary to false and see if you are able to access the fields from the …
  • By design, all bands that appear at the bottom of a page need to be of static height. One option may be to create a static memo that contains enough space to hold numerous lines inside the footer band. This way when more text is added, it will not…
  • Hi Dave, You are correct, the TppMarker.Name needs to be a valid component name in order to avoid an error. I will update the help and alter the AddMarker code to avoid this for the next release. Thanks for pointing this out.
  • Hello, The footer band will always print at the bottom of each page. This is an ideal place for any footnote information. Another option is the Page Summary band.
  • Hi Dave, Which version of ReportBuilder are you using? Are you using a current Google Static Maps API Key? Generally if you are getting a "Map Unavailable" message, your application either does not have access to the internet or there is an issue…
  • Hi Eric, First try setting DirectDraw to True and see if that helps with the resolution. 1. Is the image showing poor resolution when previewing, printing, PDF, or all? 2. Are you stretching the image? If stretching, are you enlarging a small im…
  • Hi John, Occasionally certain font collections (Truetype Collections) are misinterpreted by the windows fontsub.dll library. These are usually Asian fonts. See if you can isolate the font causing the problem and I will add it to our list of fonts…
  • Hi Rene, Does your archive contain transparent images? If possible, please send us a copy of the affected archive file and we will run it with both versions and track down the problem. Send files to support@digital-metaphors.com in .zip format.
  • Hi Carlos, See the following article on how to export to stream. The article uses an ArchiveDevice as the example, but this applies for all devices. Once the OutputStream property of a file device is set, the file will be exported to stream. htt…
  • Hi Eric, 1. The mail feature uses a single plugin architecture so individual email plugins can be registered and unregistered with ReportBuilder and that plugin will then be used when the mail button is pressed. Alternatively, when the plugin unit…
  • Hi Goran, I have the InfoPower plugin installed on multiple versions of Delphi on my machine and it is functioning correctly. There is no new component added to ReportBuilder, it simply replaces the existing TppRichText component. Be sure you hav…
  • Hi Yong, When you say "Print the report" are you printing to a printer or are you perhaps exporting to PDF? Below are links to the documentation for FillRect and FloodFill. One fills a rectangle and the other fills the area of a certain color. F…
  • Hi Dave, The code is setting TextFileName You did not mention this in your first post . For RB 20, you need to use the Report.ExportDialog when setting the TextFileName of the dialog. We are gradually adding backward compatibility features for t…
