RightReports allows you and your end users to create, edit and print reports in your application.

Think of it as a completely customizable Report Writer, which you have complete control over. Taking your existing dictionary, you are able to compile a report writer which is specific to your application. There's no need to ship any dictionary, or txd files, because the program is built specifically around your files.

You can include this report writing functionality directly in your program, or you can create a separate program for it if you prefer. Either way there is no runtime royalty necessary - you are free to ship as many copies of your program as you like.

All Right Reports code is shipped as source, so there are no black boxes. You are free to add functionality to the report engine, plus you have complete control over the look of all the windows.

The reports can consist of any data from your tables, along with built in functions, calculated values, conditional values and any custom functions you choose to code, and add. You can also suppress tables from the report engine, or suppress individual fields in tables.

The structures of these created reports are stored in tables imported to the application's dictionary. Reports can also be imported and exported (as XML, using XFiles) to allow easy delivery of new or changed reports to users.

Target Market

Clearly not all users are in a position to write reports. While Right Reports gives them the ability to write reports from scratch, chances are (at least at the beginning) not many end users will have the skills, or ability, to do this. As Right Reports matures we expect this to get easier.

That doesn't mean all is lost however. Editing existing reports is pretty straight-forward, so end users should be capable of making small and cosmetic changes to their reports. In addition, in conjunction with xFiles you'll have the functionality that allows you to export and import report definitions as xml files. So You're free to make custom reports, then email them to your client as an attachment. They import into the application and they're away.



Basic Approach

Adding Right Reports to an application requires a few easy steps and minimal effort by the programmer.

Import the Right Reports tables into your dictionary.
Import the Right Reports functions into your application.
Compile and Run.

Running reports is as simple as picking a report from a list, then clicking the Print button.
Remember these windows are in your app, so you have complete control over what they look like.

Right Reports Browse Report list

The Report Options screen appears. Note the custom fields which the user can use to set parameters for the report. Up to 10 of these fields can be declared for each report.

Right Reports Print Window

If instead of printing a report, you wish to edit it, then bring up the report editor window, which allows you to see the tree-view of the report structure, the band details, and the properties for all the controls, all on one window.
