Delphi 7 :: Rave Report Access Violation
Posted on 2007-12-04
Excuse me but I first want to get rid of my frustration.
What the hell is it with Delphi and their reports, first QuickReports which tend to be fuzzy and buggy
and now Rave Report which is not really that much better on that particular level...
Ok, now I feel better.
I had an event which tested a field's value and based on that it hide or showed a band.
In my database, I changed that particular field's name and then when I tried to preview my report in design mode, I received an access violation. I immediately remembered that I have made field name changes and the refreshed my Dataview in rave report to update the fields names, which it did.
I also located the event code and changed the field name to the correct name.
But I can not save or preview this report, it keeps on giving me a AV error.
"Access Violation at address 02213E5E in module 'RvEngine50.bpl' Read of Address".
I have worked nearly two days on this report and now it seems like I will have to do it all over again.
Am I just blatantly stupid or is Rave Report a little buggy?
Does anyone have some ideas on how to fix this AV?
Is there any other good free reporting components for Delphi?
Must have barcode label though.
Thanks in advance.
