Rave Reports

Hi
The events in Rave 9 seem to be set up for Pascal, but I am working in C++Builder. Is there a way to set it up for C++?

I am not using C++ builder but I believe Rave Reports version available in Delphi and C++ are alike, even if they are not, writing or changing events to rave report in C from Delphi will require a lot of effort and time to translate the libraries, specially when you know that the developer is no longer continuing to support this great component. The Rave Report 9 is not even available on the Homepage, you will find 5.1.

However you can request the admin attention to include C++ zones to this question for more details from C++ experts.

Just a side note, seems this component is gradually going to be abandoned since it lacks the support.

with C++ Builder I got rave version 7.7.0  

can you compiler that demo code ??


void __fastcall TForm1::BitBtn1Click(TObject *Sender)

  {
    TRaveProject *rp = RaveProject1;
    TRaveProjectManager *pm = rp->ProjMan;
    TRaveComponent *rc;
    TRavePage *pg;
    TRaveText *tx;

    rp->Open();
    rc = pm->FindRaveComponent("Report1.Page1",NULL);
    pg = dynamic_cast<TRavePage*>(rc);
    rc = pm->FindRaveComponent("Text1",pg);
    tx = dynamic_cast<TRaveText*>(rc);
    tx->Text = "Some Text";
    tx->Color = clGreen;
    rp->ExecuteReport("Report1");
    rp->Close();
  }

If you run a code based Rave report then you can hook your code into the report events.  If you are using the Rave visual report designer then the scripting is Pascal script.

Had to abandon the project as there are too many other difficulties associated with Rave.
