like topic.
Is there anything to replace crystal report for report building features on realbasic ?
Report builder and datagrid is the only thing left that I need to be on realbasic.
If it has both of that, I would port my applications using realbasic soon.

thx for the answers.

Reporting is a weak area of REALbaic. Two options you might check out are:


The ListBox can be used as a grid control. A good alternative is Einhugur StyleGrid.

I would also look at RSReport http://www.rothsoft.ch/realbasic/rsreport/index.php?page=description. I just used it for a project and I've been pretty happy with it so far.

Because it's not a 'banding' report generator like OTR, Valentina, Crystal Reports, etc, it's a bit more work to setup, but you have total control of where things are placed on the page. The demo app has a grid page that's impossible (AFAIK) to do in a traditional banding type reporting tool. It also has no report designer but after my first report I was able to reuse a lot of code and the rest went much quicker.

It currently lacks US Letter support but I've been told by the developer to expect a new version soon (next week perhaps). The documentation is in German but I found it fairly easy to figure out. Babelfish was my friend for a day or two. :)

Another point which may be of interest is that Valentina works with RB standard edition.

Thanks for sharing! It's always good to see new tools entering the RB market... can't wait to check this one out, and since I'm from Germany I expect no trouble with the documentation... =)

quite right :-)

so i just wanted to let you know that Roth Soft released RSReport Designer 2010.1.0 today.

With the new RSReport Designer, you can visually design the reports instead of creating reports only by code. Designed and coded reports can be combined, allowing very complex reports to be created. The Designer can be used and included in your software as: a Window, a standalone app - or embedded as a ContainerControl.
