need a starting point

Hi there.

I’m a little lost on to where to start with displaying a report, so I’ll explain, and maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

I want to have my user able to see what a report is like before it is printed. (On a Mac, this is easy with print preview but they are running windows).

I know I have to create a window with a canvas in it, but I am not sure how to proceed from that point.

Any hints / tips that might help?


I would go to the Xojo docs web site and grab the examples from the Reporting and Printing Webinar. (Get the Webinar itself while you’re at it.) Watch the video and tear apart the examples.

Once you have examined those, post any specific questions here and we’ll be glad to help.
