Ho Mories,

Yep, Waldek is correct, but the problem is that QR always (not in D1, I believe) needs the BDE....(So you've to install this one too)  I think you can better use another component if you want to print non-database. Look at this one : (http://www.public.usit.net/bmenees) it 's offcourse freeware.

Regards, Zif.

You must create a report with QRLabels for data from list.
Then on BeforePrint method You must set a global variable for counter and PrintReport variable true if list count > 0
Example
.. BeforePrint ...
begin
 Counter:=0;
 PrintReport:=List.Count > 0;
end;

Then in method onNeedData You must set a QRLabels caption with data
For example
.... NeedData ....
begin
 If counter < List.count then
  begin
   QRLabel1.Caption:=List.Items[counter]........
   Inc(counter)
   MoreData:=counter<=List.Count; // More data ?  
  end;
end;

Try this , if You want more explain , tell

Mories,

Well, I know that Bill Menees stopped working in Delphi and that's why his component became freeware. So it can be that he stopped with his page too. Well, if you're interested, I still can send you the component. I've got it here.

So, if you want it, just send me how I can send it to you. Maybe the easiest way is it by email.

Regards, Zif.
