Report on Organizer control
Overview
A report on an Organizer control is used to directly print the information displayed in an Organizer control found:
  • in a window or page of application. This window or page must be displayed when printing the report.
  • in a window or in an internal page:
    • The window displaying the internal window must be displayed.
    • The page displaying the internal page must be displayed.

Characteristics of the report on an Organizer control
All the rows and columns found in the Organizer control are displayed in the Organizer report.
When creating the report, you have the ability to specify the number of days to display as well as the display mode of resources (in row or in column).
A report based on an Organizer control can be created from the report editor: to do so, select an Organizer report based on an Organizer control.
Once the report on Organizer control is created, you can:
  • modify the data source of report ("Data" tab of report description).
  • modify the characteristics of the organizer ("General" tab of the organizer description).
Caution: The test of a report on Organizer control cannot be run from the report editor because the window or the page containing the Organizer control must be opened. To run the test of a report on Organizer control, you must:
  • create (if necessary) a button in the window or in the page of the Organizer control. This button is used to print the report on the Organizer control (iPrintReport).
    Case of internal windows or internal pages: If the Organizer control is found in an internal window or in an internal page, we advise you to create the button in the internal window/page (and not in the host window/page).
  • run the test of the window containing the Organizer control then run the report test (via the button).
    Case of internal windows: the test must be run from the window that is hosting the internal window.
  • run the test of the page containing the Organizer control then run the report test (via the button).
    Case of internal pages: the test must be run from the page that hosts the internal page.
Creating a report on an Organizer control from the report editor

Printing a report on an Organizer control

Printing a report on an Organizer control

A report on Organizer control must be printed from the window (or from the page) displaying the Organizer control to print. All you have to do is:
  1. Create a button in the window (or page) containing the Organizer control.
  2. Configure the destination of report print:
  3. Specify the name of report to print with iPrintReport.
Notes:
  • If additional parameters must be passed to the report, these parameters must be specified in iPrintReport, after the name of the report to print. See Report with parameters for more details.
  • WINDEV If the window containing the source organizer of the report is opened several times (non-modal opening by OpenChild), the full name of the organizer to print must be passed in parameter to the report. For example:
    // The ..FullName property will contain the name of the window
    // that must be opened with an alias in order to distinguish between each window
    iPrintReport(RPT_Customer_Organizer, ORG_Customer..FullName)
    // Opening code of report
    PROCEDURE RPT_Customer_Organizer(NameSourceOrganizer)
    MyReport..SourceName = NameSourceOrganizer

Important

In Reports & Queries, a report can be printed:
  • by starting a print ( ).
  • by running the report test ( ).
Therefore, no programming is required to print the report.
