Hi,

I found someone asking for quotations for his project:

Need an application and / or interface to create and manage reports with specific fields, but with unlimited quantities.

Can be interfaced with a database.


Quite a precise description as you can see ! I know one can embed reports in a Xojo App, but is there some way to also embed report creation/edition in the app ?

Thanks

Gilles Plante

Why do you think about Report Editor in the app?


Because I did a quote for a project that asked to create reports.

But again, Valentina Project can be a complex thing, with reports, forms, and JavaScripts.


I agree, but the project description was not clear, so I checked if there was a way to embed a report creator to a Xojo app.

Hello Gilles,

Report Editor is a part of Valentina Studio, a separate plugin-DLL, which yet depends on a few other QT DLLs.

Why do you think about Report Editor in the app?
We did think about this of course, and it's hard to believe that users of the app will spend time to learn and understand how to design reports.

If some user of your app will need really change your reports, they can buy Valentina Studio Pro and edit reports,
which are inside of Valentina Project file (.vsp)

But again, Valentina Project can be a complex thing, with reports, forms, and JavaScripts.

Hello Gilles,

No, in the runtime we can only adjust the appearance of the report.
For example, use parameters and JavaScript code to hide or show fields, change sorting, use different source query.
