Change the value of a Text Component in Rave Report from code

Hi experts !

  I would like to know how to change the value of a standard Text Component in Rave Report from my Delphi Code on runtime.  In my report, there is a field that will change value depending of the SQL request, but that value isn't in my SQL table, so I have to change it manually, or find an alternative to change a text component in my report on runtime.

Thanks a lot !

Alright ! I found the answer in this topic:

Here, the solution:
  1. On the right column, click on "RaveProject"
  2. In the properties of "RaveProject", double-click on "Parameters"
  3. Add the name you want to associate to you Text Component (ex: "MyTitle")
  4. Now, on your report, add a "DataText Component" (under the Report Tab)
  5. Set the "DataField" value to "Param.MyTitle" (or whatever what you called it)
  6. From your Delphi code, set the parameter like that: rvProject.SetParam('myTitle', 'yourValue');
  7. Run and have fun !

Thanks anyway !
