Delphi 7 :: Rave Reports - Take Full Control of Setup via Coding
Posted on 2007-11-30
I am using Delphi 7 and Rave components to produce my reports.
This reports will be printed in a manufacturing environment.
When executing the report, using Rave it will be irritation to click (and also time consuming)
through all the "print / preview" etc prompts. What I need is that when executing the report it
must directly (immediately) start to print to the printer.
BUT, the user must be able to specify all the configurations at the setup form for example:
1. Should Report be Previewed first / Print Immediately.
2. The printer for each report should be set up. For example:
For printing picking lists, use PrinterABC
For printing Labels, use PrinterXYZ.
And then also show me how to save these settings, maybe in a ini file or what ever is best.
Show to sum it all up.
I want my users to setup all (or at least the 2 above mentioned) printer parameters once, on first run, and thereafter they just print by obeying the set up parameters.
Please help with complete code examples or demos.
Thanks in advance.
