FastReport VCL 4.5 for Delphi/C++Builder continues the tradition of reporting excellence and innovation, delivering a comprehensive set of new features for report designers and application developers. Among them there are new converters for obtaining reports from competing report generators - ConverterRB2FR.pas for converting reports from Report Builder, ConverterQR2FR.pas for converting reports from QuickReport. Besides, there is an added support for several applications in e-mail export (for example, HTML with images). Some other important changes include a support for Unicode UTF-8 in e-mail export, an opportunity to change the path to the templates in the designer and a newly added script event called OnReportPrint. These and other changes give much greater flexibility and power to those developers who want to integrate award-wining Business Intelligence into their software.

Product at a glance

FastReport VCL is an add-on component that enables your application to generate reports quickly and efficiently. FastReport provides all the necessary tools to develop reports, including a visual report designer, a reporting core, and a preview window. The product can be used in the Borland Delphi 4-2006 and Borland C++Builder 4-2006 environments. There is a wide range of objects used in a report (text, image, chart, barcode, etc.) and data-formatting tools - everything necessary to create professional-looking reports. The most amazing feature in FastReport VCL is its performance. In about 20 minutes, it's possible to generate the first report from scratch. The product has a very small footprint. It adds fewer Kb to your application than any other reporting tool with comparable features. No additional DLLs are required.

Adding FastReport VCL to your application is a breeze. You need to put several necessary components on the visual form, then connect to needed data sources and make a report form. It's as easy as working in Corel Draw. The end user who got FastReport VCL in an application can edit templates and available reports, convert reports to 15 formats (such as PDF, XLS, RTF, and ODF), and send reports by email directly from the application.
