Hi folks.

There is a first for everything, so here goes.
I am trying to create a generic report enginge which
is to use QR2.0K to generate reports - however I
stumbled upon a problem! I can't seem to be able
to create labels dynamically. Must labels be
placed on Bands ? And must QR use a table
to create the report ? If so, does anybody know
any report-tools that aren't dependant on tables
but can use them ?

Could somebody give me an example of
how they create a label at runtime and plz
add source ?

I havent got a clue as to the worth of this
question so its guessing :-)

faithfully

Hi GOMF,

QR is not completely dependent of DataSets. Take a look on the OnNeedData event documentation.

About creating Labels dynamically, I hope your talking about TQRLabel and not TLabel components. If so I don´t see any troubles. Try to create them on the BeforePrint event, perhaps setting TQRLabel.Parent := QRBand will complete the job.

I didn´t try it as I don´t have Delphi in this box, right now.

IHTH,
Itamar

Hi GOMF,

now I have tried it. This is the code:

.
var
  MyLabel: array[0..10] of TQRLabel;
.

procedure TQRListForm.QuickReportBeforePrint(Sender: TQuickRep;
  var PrintReport: Boolean);
begin
  MyLabel[0] := TQRLabel.Create(Self);
  With MyLabel[0] do begin
     Caption := 'My Label';
     Left := 300;
     Top := 6;
     Parent := PageHeader;
  end;
end;

IHTH,
Itamar

Dear Itamar.

Thank you for a simple explanation - Appearantly
my problem was that I didn't do this at
the "Beforeprint" event.
