How To…Implement Event-Handlers for Report Templates


“How do I implement event-handlers for report templates?”


  1. The best solution is to code the calculations and event-handlers in RAP, the run-time Pascal coding evironment included with ReportBuilder Enterprise. RAP enables the event-handler code to be saved in the .rtm templates as part of the report definition.
  2. If you use Delphi event-handlers as you are doing now, all of the event-handler code must reside in the form upon which the TppReport component resides. As you have discovered, you must write the code in such a manner as to not refer to any components directly by name.
