Hi

I have a Windows for that I want my user to position text and labels to set a layout for a report. What is the best way to do this? Should I use a table? Perhaps drag labels around?

I think that is one way. Is it going to be a single page report like an invoice or a multiple page list of columns (like a datagridview shows)?

Probably a single page. I would probably use a tab control to add additional pages

I am not aware of any reporting tool which supports tabs unless you mean using forms as reports.

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

Yes. I mean using a form to build a report structure
I want to position and format labels on a form then
also use labels to name a query that pulls in SQL data
and position that name as another label

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
