Changing class inheritance

edited December 2015 in Component Writing

in Version 5.56 we used TSpecialRichtext=class((TppDBRichText), as the
texts are stored statically in our DB.
After my investigations now I have to they that this decision of our
system-architecture was and is wrong.
Normally it should be TSpecialRichtext=class((TppRichText).
I can made these code changes, but I do not know what happens with our
reports when migratin from 5.56 to 16.03 including this change?

Will reports containing old TSpecialRichtext still work with the new
implementation. I assume, but can anyone confirm?

    Hi Carsten,

    In the current version of ReportBuilder TppDBRichText and TppRichText
    both descend from the TppCustomRichText class. If you take a look at
    the TppRichText and TppDBRichText classes you will see that they are
    fairly minimal with most of the processing and features being in the

    I suggest checking your code to be sure no features exclusive to
    DBRichText are being used. If not, you should not have an issue
    descending from TppRichText.

    Best Regards,
