RB 7 and WP Tools

ReportBuilder 7 no longer includes the global ppParentWnd due to modifications required for thread-safety.

You have two choices:

  1. Modify TWPCustomRichTextForPP (or create a descendant class). Override the CreateParams as shown below. CreateParams is a protected method of TWinControl. (note: This is the approach that RB uses so that RichText can be thread-safe for RB Server.)
  2. Create an invisble form and use that as the parent. (Note: This is not thread-safe).
