Details of the report print modes proposed during the test

Report viewer

The report viewer is used to preview the layout of a report without printing it. The report layout and content can be checked. You also have the ability to print the report.
See Report viewer for more details.

Printer

The report is directly printed on the default printer of the current computer, with the default options of the printer.

RTF file

The report is saved and viewed in RTF format (Rich Text Format). The created file is viewed in one of the text editors installed on the current computer (Word, Open Office or NotePad for example).
The generated file is named "<ReportName>.RTF". This file is created in the EXE sub-directory of the project directory.
Remarks:
  • A text editor must be installed on the current computer in order to view the generated file.
  • To save a file in RTF format, the "RICHED20.DLL" file must be found on the current computer. In most cases, the "RICHED20.DLL" file is found in the system directory of Windows.
  • Printing texts that are not oriented horizontally (90° for example) is not supported.
  • The tables are supported by the RTF format. The font color and the background color of cells are stored.
  • Overlaying elements (images and texts for example) is not supported.

HTML file

The report is saved and viewed in HTML format. The created file can be viewed in the default browser installed on the current computer.
The generated file is named "<ReportName>.HTM". This file is created in the EXE sub-directory of the project directory.
Remarks:
  • The created HTML file is using the style sheets (CSS).
  • An Internet browser must be installed on the current computer in order to view the generated file.

PDF file or generic PDF file

The report is saved and viewed in PDF format (Portable Document Format). The created file is directly displayed in a PDF viewer (Adobe Acrobat for example) installed on the current computer.
The generated file is named "<ReportName>.PDF". This file is created in the EXE sub-directory of the project directory.
Remarks:
  • If "PDF file" is selected, the created PDF file depends on the current printer. If "Generic PDF file" is selected, the PDF file is independent of the current printer.
  • A PDF viewer must be installed on the current computer in order to view the generated file.
