How to convert from Delphi and Quick Report ? was created by Jesus Caribe
Hi,

Forgive me my English.

I want to convert a huge Delphi system to Code Typhon.

I have several question. My first one is about Quick Report.

I understand there are several tools for printing under Code Typhon; but, which of them is the best free option to replace my Quick Report code with minimal changes?

Now, a very important point about it :

I don't use the Quick Report components for dataset because my client programs are full independents of the server.database components

I ever get my data by using http. I receive the string result, I decode it and then I create all my reports by using the OnNeedData event of TQuickRep component

Therefore, my question is not a general question. Its under this condition.

Thanks you for your attention

Thanks Sir

From the first read of your post, my suggestion is to replace Quick Report with
lz_Report package,
has the same "philosophy" with QR (I think, because we do not use Delphi and any Delphi pkg).

But you can use and
lz_FpReport, pl_FortesReport packages too,
it's depends from your source code.

Hi,

I tryied your several suggestions.

I found several troubles by using lz_Report and lz_FpReport. I think they are not options for muy purpose.

Fortes Report is my choice.

At least, in my first tests I am aware It has almost all the things that I need.

However, I found an important problem : Child Bands

I use too much Child bands in my more complex reports; but, I don't see child bands in Fortes Report.

Any idea about how to emulate it under Fortes Report ?

To be clear. In many reports, I have a Detail Band and this band has several child bands (assigned by using the linkBand property). Each child band in each record can be printed, or not printed, according to programatic conditions

Thank you for your attention

Hi,

Maybe, I solved my problem.

I think I can replace the TQRChildBand by using TRLBand because my preliminary tests were Ok about it.

Now, I am going to write my own package to emulate QuickReport by using Fortes Report components as my parent components.

If I am succesfull I believe I will be able to convert all my old reports under Delphi to Code Typhon with really very few work.

I will comment my results.

Best Regards
