MDI Report Explorer

edited September 2002 in Server
When I set the formstyle to fsMDIChild of a rsClientReportExplorer, I get
the following error when it attempts to open:

"Cannot make a visible window modal"

With the formstyle set to fsNormal the explorer opens normally.

    Any luck with this one?

    I researched this and determined the following:

    1. I was able to create an MDI ClientReportExplorer example but it
    required a modification to the source code. There is a
    ClientReportExplorer.ModalForm boolean property that was accidentally
    left out. We'll get this fixed for the next maintenance release.

    2. You cannot use fsMDIChild - that form style will not work. Instead
    you have to place the rsClientReportExplorer component on an MDIChild
    window and write a small amount of code to configure the report explorer
    to behave as a child window (i.e. behave as report explorer panel).
    However one of the properties that needs to set is the ModaForm property
    mentioned in 1 above.

    If you have purchased RB Server and want to try to get this working now,
    please let me know and I can send you the source units and the example
    code. Otherwise you will need to wait until we do a maintenance release.
