ReportBuilder 16 introduced PDF form fields and checkboxes. This allowed for the creation of dynamic PDF forms that could be altered and printed with the user’s custom data. ReportBuilder 19 includes a number of new ways to manipulate the existing form fields as well as the addition of PDF buttons.
Form Field customization
In the past, PDF form fields were defined using the TppLabel.FormField boolean property. This property has now been deprecated and replaced with the TppLabel.FormFieldSettings property. Use the FormFieldType sub-property to define which type of form field you would like to use. There are also a number of useful settings such as required fields, read only fields, and the ability to limit the number of characters a form field can hold. The FormFieldTitle property has also been moved into the FormFieldSettings and can be very useful for manual form editing and form submission. See the following help topics in the installed RB documentation for more information on each property.
PDF Form submit, reset, execute
To create a PDF button, place a TppLabel on a report and simply set the FormFieldSettings.FormFieldType property to fftSubmit or fftReset. When the fftSubmit option is selected, you will use the FormFieldSettings.FormSubmitInfo property to define its behavior.
From whithin the FormSubmitInfo options, it is possible to define a URL that the form data will be sent. Use the SubmitMethod to define whether the web application receiving the form data expects HTTP GET or HTTP POST format.
lblSubmit.FormFieldSettings.PDFFormFieldType := fftSubmit;
Hopefully this will give you a better idea how the new interactive PDF features can be utilized to create even more powerful PDF reports. An updated RBWiki article has been posted with the above information and a new example. Enjoy!
