Prints a report created with the report editor.
Caution: The WLanguage code required to print the report depends on the data source of report. For more details and examples, see:

Important

With Reports & Queries, you can print a report via one of the following options:
  • by printing directly ( ).
  • by opening the report test window ( ).
Therefore, no programming is required to print the report.
In order for the reports created in Reports & Queries to be directly printed from a WINDEV application, this feature must be implemented by the provider of WINDEV application.
The provider can for example include a window allowing the end user to:
  • select a report created in Reports & Queries.
  • run this report.
Remark: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name of HyperFileSQL.
Example
// Simple print on printer
RPT_Invoice.Print()
WEBDEV - Server code
// Create a unique file name
MyUniqueFile is string = fDataDir() + "\" + DateSys() + TimeSys() + ".pdf"
// Destination of the report: Print the report in a PDF file
iDestination(iPDF, MyUniqueFile)
// Print report based on "TABLE_CustomerTable"
RPT_CustomerTable.Print()
// Display the report in PDF format
FileDisplay(MyUniqueFile, "application/pdf")
// Delete the file
fDelete(MyUniqueFile)
Syntax
<Result> = <Report name>.Print([<Parameter 1> [... [, <Parameter N>]]])
<Result>: Type of result returned by the report (optional)
Versions 20 and later
Value returned by printing the report. This value is returned:
  • by the RESULT keyword, in the closing code of the report.
  • by ..ReturnedValue used before closing the report.
New in version 20
Value returned by printing the report. This value is returned:
  • by the RESULT keyword, in the closing code of the report.
  • by ..ReturnedValue used before closing the report.
Value returned by printing the report. This value is returned:
  • by the RESULT keyword, in the closing code of the report.
  • by ..ReturnedValue used before closing the report.
<Report name>: Control name
Name of report, defined in the report editor.
<Parameter 1>: Optional parameters (the type corresponds to the parameter type)
Optional parameter expected by the report. This parameter was defined in the opening code of report. This parameter can be the name of a view, the name of a memory zone, etc.
Caution: If lower bounds and upper bounds have been specified for the report, the first two parameters must correspond the lower bound and to the upper bound (respectively).
<Parameter N>: Optional parameters (the type corresponds to the parameter type)
Optional parameter expected by the report. This parameter was defined in the opening code of report. This parameter can be the name of a view, the name of a memory zone, etc.
Caution: If lower bounds and upper bounds have been specified for the report, the first two parameters must correspond the lower bound and to the upper bound (respectively).
Remarks

Principle for printing a report

<Report>.Print reads the report data source (data files, query, Table control, etc.). <Report>.Print prints the Body block for each record. The other blocks are printed when necessary:
  • The Start of document block will be printed at the beginning of document.
  • The End of document block will be printed at the end of document.
  • The Page header block will be printed at the top of each page.
  • The Page footer block will be printed at the bottom of each page.
  • If there is a break, the Body block of the break will be located between the Break header block and the Break footer block.

Report with lower and upper bounds

If the lower and upper bounds were specified when the report was created in the report editor, the first two parameters passed to the report via <Report>.Print must correspond to the lower bound and to the upper bound, respectively.
Example: a report was created on Customer file. This report browses the file on the "CustomerNum" key item. This report was defined as being bounded, with specified minimum and maximum bounds ("Data" tab in the report description window.
The following code is used to print the report for customers 2 to 5:
iDestination(iViewer)
RPT_Customers_Prospects.Print("2", "5")

Running a query and report based on this query

When printing a report based on a query, the query is not re-run if it was already run. To force the re-execution of the query (e.g., add records), simply use <Fichier HFSQL>.ExécuteRequête or iInitReportQuery.

Print destination

You can set the print destination of the report using iDestination.
WEBDEV - Server codeAjax

Passing parameters

The parameters specified by <Report>.Print correspond to the parameters defined in the opening code of report via the following syntax:
PROCEDURE <ReportName> (<NameParam1>, <NameParam2> = "<DefaultValue>", ...
<NameParamN> = "<DefaultValue>")
Reminder: Some of the parameters passed to a procedure can be optional parameters. When declaring the procedure, the optional parameters must be described in last position (on the right), with a default value preceded by the "=" sign. See Parameter of a procedure for more details.
If the report is based on a query, iInitReportQuery must be used to pass the query parameters before printing the report.

Printing a component report

To print a component report, use the name of component report (the component being included in the project). For example:
ComponentReport.Print()
If a conflict occurs with a project element, the name of the element must be prefixed by the name of the component. For example:
MyComponent.Report.Print()
To use the name of the report in a variable, the name of the component must be specified. For example:
sReport is string = "MyComponent.MyReport"
sReport.Print()

Nested reports

You have the ability to call <Report>.Print within the same report. See the help about the Nested reports for more details.
