The Reporting Framework provides multiple destinations for report output. For example, a scheduled report has the options for Printer, Save Report Output, and Attach Report To Email. In addition, reports that are viewed on the screen can also be saved to a file or printed. Previously, in scheduled or viewed report output, if more than one of these options were chosen for a given report, then there was a possibility that inconsistent output might appear in one or more of the destinations. The problem could consist of inconsistent layout, incorrect page orientation, or incorrect numeric values being displayed. This issue has now been fixed.
The Reporting Framework Source and Samples download (Reporting Framework Source CD) is available from the QAD Store
). The download contains sample reports, templates, and portions of the Reporting Framework’s Progress code that are relevant for Progress data source developer usage. This does not include the source code of the data source programs used by the hundreds of new reports that have been developed recently using the framework; it only includes the generic pieces that are part of the framework itself. The download also includes documentation, coding tools, and examples for using the Scheduled Report and Run Report APIs, which allow developers to write applications to schedule or run reports.
