You can download the installation file from ShareAppsCrack.com [^1^] or other sources. After downloading, run the setup file and follow the instructions. You will be asked to enter your serial number during the installation process. After installation, you will find Rave Reports 11 components in the component palette of Delphi and C++ Builder.
Creating a Simple Report
To create a simple report, you need to have a data source that you want to report on. For example, you can use a table or a query from a database. You also need to have a Rave project file that contains the report definition. You can create a new Rave project file by selecting File > New > Other > Rave Reports > Rave Project in Delphi or C++ Builder. You can also use an existing Rave project file by opening it with File > Open.
Once you have a Rave project file, you can add a new report by right-clicking on the Reports node in the Project Tree and selecting New Report. You can then use the Report Designer to design your report layout. You can add various components such as bands, text objects, data objects, shapes, images, charts, etc. to your report. You can also set various properties such as fonts, colors, alignment, formatting, etc. for each component.
To connect your report to your data source, you need to use a Data Object component. You can drag and drop a Data Object component from the Component Palette to your report. You can then set its Data Source property to point to your data source. For example, if you are using a table from a database, you can set the Data Source property to Table1 or whatever name you have given to your table component in Delphi or C++ Builder.
To display data fields from your data source in your report, you need to use Data Text components. You can drag and drop Data Text components from the Component Palette to your report. You can then set their Data Field property to point to the data fields that you want to display. For example, if you want to display the Name field from your table, you can set the Data Field property of a Data Text component to Name.
You can also use other components such as Calculated Text, Summary Text, System Text, etc. to display calculated values, summaries, page numbers, dates, etc. in your report.
Printing and Previewing Your Report
To print or preview your report, you need to use a RvProject component and a RvSystem component in Delphi or C++ Builder. You can drag and drop these components from the Component Palette to your form. You can then set their properties as follows:
Set the ProjectFile property of the RvProject component to point to your Rave project file.
Set the Engine property of the RvSystem component to point to the RvProject component.
Set the DefaultDest property of the RvSystem component to rvSystemPreview if you want to preview your report or rvSystemPrinter if you want to print your report.
Set the SystemSetups property of the RvSystem component to include ssAllowSetup if you want to allow the user to change printer settings before printing or previewing.
To execute your report, you need to call the Execute method of the RvSystem component with the name of your report as a parameter 0efd9a6b88
