Report on Scheduler control
Overview
A report on a Scheduler control is used to directly print the information displayed in a Scheduler 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.
Note: Only a Scheduler report can be created on a Scheduler control.
Characteristics of the report on a Scheduler control
Each row and each column found in the Scheduler control are displayed in the Scheduler 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 on Scheduler control can be created from the report editor: to do so, select a Scheduler report based on a Scheduler control.
Once the report on Scheduler control is created, you can:
  • modify the data source of report ("Data" tab of report description).
  • modify the characteristics of the schedule ("General" tab of the schedule description).
Caution: The test of a report on a Scheduler control cannot be run from the report editor because the window or the page containing the Scheduler control must be opened. To run the test of a report on a Scheduler control, you must:
  • create a button in the window or page of the Scheduler control. This button is used to print the report on the Scheduler control (iPrintReport).
    Case of internal windows: If the Scheduler control is found in an internal window, the button should be created in the internal window (and not in the host window).
  • run the test of the window containing the Scheduler 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 Scheduler control then run the test of the report (via the button).
    Case of internal pages: the test must be run from the page that hosts the internal page.

Important

Reports & Queries cannot be used to create reports on a Scheduler control. However, you have the ability to customize the reports on a Scheduler control created in the standard report editor (color, fonts, size, ...).
Creating a report on a Scheduler control from the report editor
The report editor allows you to create a Scheduler on a Scheduler control.
Once the report is created, the print must be programmed in WLanguage. See Printing a report on a Scheduler control for more details.

Creating a report on a Scheduler control from the report editor

To create a report on a Scheduler control from the report editor:
  1. Select "File .. New .. Report". The wizard for report creation starts.Click among the quick access buttons.
    • Click "Report" in the wheel that is displayed. The window for creating a new element is displayed: click "Report" then "Report".
    • The wizard for report creation starts.
  2. Choose an "Organizer or Scheduler" report.
  3. Select "Scheduler report" and enter the characteristics of the report:
    • Number of days to display,
    • Granularity of gridlines,
    • Display mode of resources.
      See Scheduler report for more details.
  4. Select the data source of report ("From a Scheduler control").
  5. Select the Scheduler control on which the report will be based. Only the Scheduler controls found in the windows or pages of the current project are proposed.
    Note: If the selected control and the report do not have the same characteristics, the report editor proposes to modify the display of the report.
  6. Specify the format of the sheet on which the report will be printed. The report is printed in A4 format by default.
  7. Type the name and title of report (name of ".WDE" file corresponding to the report). This name will be used to identify the report in your programs.
    WINDEV You also have the ability to specify whether the report can be modified by the end user in "Reports & Queries".
  8. Validate the report creation.
  9. Specify (if necessary) the mode for reducing the report size:
    • Versions 19 and later
      Print the report on several pages. In this case, the end user will have to group the pages. See Multi-page print for more details.
      New in version 19
      Print the report on several pages. In this case, the end user will have to group the pages. See Multi-page print for more details.
      Print the report on several pages. In this case, the end user will have to group the pages. See Multi-page print for more details.
    • Use the landscape mode.
    • Reduce the report size. Caution: according to the reduction percentage, the printed report may become unreadable.
  10. The report currently created is displayed in the report editor.
Printing a report on a Scheduler control

Principle

A report on a Scheduler control must be printed from the window or page displaying the Scheduler control to print. All you have to do is:
  1. Create a button in the window (or page) containing the Scheduler 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 scheduler of the report is opened several times (non-modal opening by OpenChild), the full name of the scheduler 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_Schedule, SCH_Customer..FullName)
    // Opening code of report:
    PROCÉDURE RPT_Customer_Schedule(NameSourceSchedule)
    MyReport..SourceName = NameSourceSchedule

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.
WINDEVReports and Queries

WINDEV example

The information to print is contained in the Scheduler control named "SCH_CustomerSchedule" found in the "WIN_Customer" window.
The report to print is named "RPT_CustomerSchedule" and it is printed during a click on the "BTN_Print" button.
In this example, the click code of "BTN_Print" button is as follows:
// Open the preview window
iPreview()
// Print the report based on "SCH_CustomerSchedule"
iPrintReport(RPT_CustomerSchedule)
WEBDEV - Server code

WEBDEV example

The information to print is contained in the Scheduler control named "SCH_CustomerSchedule" found in the "PAGE_Customer" page.
The report to print is named "RPT_CustomerSchedule" and it is displayed in a PDF file when clicking the "BTN_Print" button.
In this example, the click code of "BTN_Print" button is as follows:
// Generates a unique file name
UniqueFileName is string = fWebDir() + "\" + "RPT_CustomerSchedule_" + ...
DateSys() + TimeSys() + ".pdf"
// Configures the print destination
iDestination(iPDF, UniqueFileName)
// Prints the report based on SCH_CustomerSchedule
iPrintReport(RPT_CustomerSchedule)
// Displays the report in PDF format
FileDisplay(UniqueFileName, "application/pdf")
// Deletes the file
fDelete(UniqueFileName)
Minimum required version
