Affecting emailing?

edited June 2009 in Server

Delphi 6, RB Enterprise 11.03.

We have reproduced this behaviour on 2 PCs now, one running Windows Vista
and the other running XP. Writing and viewing reports using RB Enterprise,
we can see the Email button on the report previiew and email the report.

Once RB Server is installed on the same PC (i.e. RB Service is running), the
email button disappears on any new report written after it was installed.
Existing reports still show the email button, but reports written once RB
Server is installed don't.

Are you able to reproduce this?

    Set Report.EmailSettings.Enabled to True for the new reports that you

    If you have and end-user designer app, you can use the Report.Template.OnNew
    event to set default props for new reports created by end-users.

    On the Server side, you can use the ReportVolume.OnLoadReportEnd event to
    set default props for reports loaded by the server. The Sender of the event
    is the report instance.

    My mistake, I wasn't clear in my original post.

    The report previews I am talking about are in Windows software, not in the
    browser. Although RB Server stuff is being installed, the reports I am
    referring to and in a Windows program, not a browser.

    So essentially, we write a report in our Windows program and can preview
    them in that program, email icon works.

    Install the RB Service and then any report written in the Windows program,
    and previewed in the Windows program, no longer shows the email icon.
    Reports written before the RB Service was installed still show the icon.

    All of this is outside of Delphi, this is end-user.

    Sorry, I read your post several times and I still do not understand.

    Can you provide steps required to duplicate this issue?

    Yes, sorry, I know this isn't clear. I can only go on what my support team
    are telling me they have come across and can't confirm whether this will
    work in a demo situation, or whether it is our software. I'll get into it a
    bit more before making you waste any more time on this.

    This issue can now be closed, it was nothing to do with RB Server. It was
    the fact the TppReport.EmailSettings.Visible property was False for new
