You can now order a powerful WPTools 5 support unit for FastReport (Version 3 and 4). It is based on a new technology which gets the most out of the advanced WPTools 5 formatting algorithm. So it is possible to even print the document header and footer. If you need to export the report to PDF we recommend wPDF – this product will also export the WPTools objects in your report – and not convert them into bitmaps. There is now also a new WPTools 5 ReportBuilder support unit available (V9 + 10)- it is based on the same technology as the FastReport unit.

Also now available: Reporting! The developer can set up an outline of groups, bands, calculated variables and fields and the user can modify it according to his hore her needs (change fonts or styles). When completed, a document is created which incorporates the text from the template with data from one or multiple queries. Unlike other reporting engines, TextDynamic produces documents, not just RTF files which consist of multiple text objects and are so hardly editable.

The text control comes with assemblies for .NET 1.1 and 2 which can be used in C# and VB.NET. The also included ActiveX control, it can be used in systems such as Visual Basic 6 or MS Access, has been checked through to make it more robust and deployment easy. The bindable property "Text" now works with a variant array of bytes to make it possible to connect it to a binary field, such as an OleObject field in MS Access, which allows much faster loading and saving.
When working with the editor in MS Access the delete key was not working – this problem has been resolved.
