In Reply to What I want to do is ... posted by RussCAp12602 on April 09, 2008: My application accepts some input from the user, performs dome calculations, then produces three things:
: 1. A calculation report
: 2. A complex diagram bases on the results
: 3. An elaborate report utilizing a database of text.
: I want to be able to do the following in the reports:
: 1. Set page header for all but the first page.
: 2. Set page footer having page number and some text.
: 3. Set font size and color, bold, italic.
: 4. Set indentation.
: 5. Include graphic (.BMP).
: 6. Print the reports and the above domplex diagram.
: The reports and diagram will be displayed on screen prior to being printed. The headers and footers would preferably not be present on-screen. It is feasible to generate the reports and diagram twice, once for screen presentation and once for printing.
: The user will have no choices to make regarding the presentation.
: This will be done (I hope!) using the JCL and JVCL components.
: I am using Delphi 2007.
Seems like you need some kind of Report Generator, for example "Rave" or use a free reporting component set.
Maybe you already have some report components? Check your component palette :)
