I use QuickReport in my Delphi 7 application, and try to change the window behaviour, but nothing seems to bother the preview window.

How can I change the size of the QR preview window before opening the preview?
I also want to change to Window form style to fsStayOnTop.

Setting this in the object inspector has no effect.

What' s the QR version you are using? 3.5.0 or 3.6.2?

On 3.6.2 (Professional) changing the Object inspector properties:
and PreviewInitial Style you get the desired results.

also you have .PreviewModal, .PreviewModeless and .Preview methods defined.

On 3.5.0 you don´t have the sources so your options are limited.

This document helped me countless times. You have a chapter there dedicated to Report Preview.
