Extending the VFP9 Reporting System Part I: Design-time
Among the new and improved features in the reporting system of VFP 9 is the ability to extend the Report Designer to provide easier-to-use, more powerful, and more flexible report writing to your development team and even your end-users. In this session, you will learn about the new Report Builder application, how it captures and handles events raised by the Report Designer, and how you can create your own handlers to extend the VFP Report Designer in ways you never thought possible.
Extending the VFP9 Reporting System Part II: Run-time
In addition to the design-time extensibility of VFP 9’s reporting system discussed in Part I of this session, VFP 9 also provides the ability to extend the behavior of the reporting system when reports are run. In this session, you’ll learn about VFP 9’s report listener concept, how it receives events as a report is run, and how you can create your own listeners to provide different types of output besides the traditional print and preview.
