We use the QuickReport TQRPreview for that. QuickReport comes with Delphi 2,3 and 4.

You can also use it without having a real report to print.

Just make a report with a TQRRichEdit on it. Copy your text to this TRichEdit. (QRRichEdit.Lines := RichEdit.Lines)

And make a form with a TQRPreview component on it (frmPreview).

Use the OnPreview event of the TQReport to create your preview.


  frmPreview := TfrmPreview.Create(Self);
  with frmPreview do begin
    QRPreview1.Printer := nil;
    QRPreview1.Printer := TQRPrinter(Sender);
    ShowModal; // or if you have an MDI child just don't
  end;

There are several other print preview components to be found on

Thank you.  I will try this. I would still like to try a good preview component that would be more specific to my task.  It seems that using Quick Report would add a lot of overhead.  Am I right ?  But also all the components I saw on Delphi Echange were written in 1995.  Is that because everybody is using Quick report now and there is no need for other components ?
