Re: Default Font Size 8 point - need default 9 point Question

Hmm, OK well I have decided to do it this way: DBRichViewEdit1.DeleteUnusedStyles(True, True, True); for I := 0 to RVStyleEstimateItems.TextStyles.Count-1 do begin if (RVStyleEstimateItems.TextStyles.Items[i].Size<9) then RVStyleEstimateItems.TextStyles[i].Size:=9; end; And I do that when I save my ...

Default Font Size 8 point - need default 9 point Question

Searched here but no answer: I have a DBRichViewEdit with a RVStyles attached. RVStyles has some TextStyles set, one of which is '0 - Normal Text' with SizeDouble set to 18 Now - I can insert an item (e.g. table) and beforehand search for and add a missing font size 9 - no problems there. But for th...

The field has a value - I can showmessage the value. The function is: function TMEProjectSelect.LoadRVFFromField(rv: TCustomRichView; qry: TIB_Query; const FieldName: String): Boolean; var Stream: TStream; begin Stream := qry.CreateBlobStream(qry.FieldByName(FieldName), bsmRead); try Result := rv.Lo...

If I just do this from a form var sItemDes: String; begin sItemDes := GetAllText(frmeMEItemList1.DBRichViewEdit1); Showmessage(sItemDes); end; I see the text excluding format codes which is what I want. But if I do this via code: LoadRVFFromField(rvHidden, SchoolDB.IB_QItemListExport, 'RVDESCRIPTION...

Sergey, Gnostice have just sent me a couple of files which fixes this. It makes a big difference. I see many other posts here with a similar issue where bold text runs into non-bold text which follows it and wrapping issues and margin clipping. It's all fixed. Hopefully Gnostice get the fix out gene...

I have been testing all this with RVReportHelper instead of RVPrint. It works better, but of course the canvas object is different and so the margins and footer header setup is more complicated. I'd rather use the RVPrint to do it. I still can't work out why the rendering of the RVPrint object to pd...

Gnostice support have asked for a demo app. I hope you don't mind, I've added the gnostice render call to your Editor1 Delphi sample app and sent that to them.
It clearly shows the output rendering is different from printer to printer (text overrunning).

Sergey, They offer both methods: procedure RenderDocument(ARVPrint: TRVPrint; IsFormatted: Boolean); overload; procedure RenderDocument(ARVHelper: TRVReportHelper); overload; But it seems to me from looking at their source that they need to make the call to FormatPages after they assign the new cont...

BTW here's my help file of march 08 http://www.meta.com.au/rvprintproperties.jpg So sorry - I was looking in the component list but it's in CustomRVPrint. Anyway - the upgraded color component icons I see in the hel...

OK - RVPrint.PreviewCorrection property is not documented. But if I set it to False, the preview and printing of the document is the same as the gnostice rendering (i.e. the margins are clipped because the formatting of the font is incorrect, bold text overruns adjacent non-bold text etc). If I set ...

This is the Gnostice reply: Hello Alan, We would like to mention that the problem seems to be 'RVPrint' and its corresponding printer settings. We request you contact TRichView support team to get this report file previewed correctly using 'RVPrintPreview', so that it can be properly rendered to PDF...

Gnostice RichView Export interface

I've just upgraded to V10. I am also using gnostice and the export interface. I've noticed that while rendering the document for some printers (both my HP Laser and Photosmart) on screen appears fine and print fine. The saving of the document as a pdf via the export interface, however, is not correc...

if you create separate pdf files for each page or yor report, you can then pickj each page upagain and stitch them together into one pdf using gnostice pdftoolkit. It's very simple. (and fast) so noone would know you are using this method of temp files.

hmmm, that class is compiled (or not) into richviewactions.dcu so if I search for this file I should find duplicates if they exist. correct? But when I do, there are no duplicates.
