The future of ReportPro

Hi Robert,

Further to my comments.
Is it possible to include a drill-down facility in RP?

Also, can we have global variables. That is variables that have scope across all sections and embedded reports?

Regards,
Tim

The future of ReportPro

<r>Yes please! RP3 is an awesome bit of kit. If some serious XSharp users are not using RP, they are wasting their lives away. It leaves Crystal for dead in most areas. With a bit of development it could dominate the reporting app market.<br/> <br/> 1. Your RP Version RP2[ ] RP3[X ]<br/> 2. Uses [ ]...

Attempting to create web-based version of application with VS

ReportPro 3.9 and sql table swap

Hi.

I'm assuming you are using the DotNet RP3.
The function :
FUNCTION RP3SQLCALLBACK(nMode, uParam)

Should be able to do the trick. Docs are in the listofchanges.txt file. It may not be so straightforward with the VO version.

Regards,
Tim

SQL Database choices

Firebird. It is free, bulletproof, easy to install, got stored procedures etc etc. A 2MB app called Flamerobin will give full database admin. We have 100s of sites running it without problems.

Mixing C# and X#

<t>I have been mixing X# and C# projects for some time now. The C# facility is useful for sample code for 3rd party interfaces. It saves having to translate to X#. C# is quite good, but it is hard to go past X# for flexibility and productivity. <br/> Usually, I will reference the C# projects from my...
