How To…Standard Header/Footer


“How can I implement a standard header and footer for all of my reports?


1. When implementing form based reports, you can use Delphi’s form inheritance to create a base report layout
Notes: Do not use inheritance for the DataPipelines, unless you set AutoCreateFields to False. Do not use Delphi form inheritance for reports stored to a database or to rtm files.

2. This example shows how to use subreports to implement standard headers and footers. The headers and footers are stored to .rtm files.


3. There is an example installed with ReportBuilder that shows how to implement a custom subreport descendant used to automatically load head and footer templates stored to the report explorer database. The example is installed to Rbuilder\Demos\EndUser\Dynamic Subreport Loading.
