Report Previewer


The fully-customizeable, multi-function, easy, obvious report previewer that works with everything Clarion!

We have all had to deal with report preview issues in Clarion. That is exactly why we designed our Icetips Report Previewer to be not only an excellent previewer, but also 100% customizable! The previewer is created as a procedure in your application.

No external source files, no external black boxes - just a window procedure with all the code and controls that make it a previewer, ready for any changes you may desire. But just because you can change it doesn't mean you have to!

  • Previewer window fully customizeable
  • Practical, obvious design as default/inspiration
  • Include/exclude functionality as desired
  • Easy to use Wizard to create Previewer procedures
  • Theme editor to customize Wizard themes
  • Have multiple Previewer designs in one app

  • Zoom in and Zoom out
  • Search for text in Previewer
  • Includes mousewheel support
  • Page of pages support with our Utilities classes

  • Export to PDF, HTML, XML or TXT using Softvelocity's Report Output Generators
  • Works with Softvelocity's ReportWriter reports
  • Supports most other report tools, including CPCS, RPM, DAT and Fomin
  • Support for SoftVelocity'sReport Output Generators
  • Easy to add to your application & existing reports
  • All Clarion source code - no black boxes

Templates

The Report Previewer includes a wizard to create the previewer procedure. The Report Previewer proocedure template is very simple to use. You just add it to your report procedures, select the previewer procedure to use and you are done! You can also use a Global Extension template to add the Previewer to all the reports in your application. You can create multiple previewer procedures in the same application and use them for different reports or for different purposes.

And more...

The Report Previewer comes with a 68 page PDF users guide. You can download the documentation for detailed information about how the product can be used, as well as download a demo program (below).

How to buy

The Report Previewer is included in Icetips' high-value Gold Subscription for $299. The Report Previewer may also be purchased separately for just $99.  (Multiple copy pricing is available.)

Compatibility

You can use the Report Previewer with Clarion 4 - 10 in both ABC and Clarion template chains.

The template can be applied to any report procedures. It can also be used in hand coded applications.

Version 2.7.392.86 [June 29, 2015]

June 27, 2015:

  1. Template: Page of Pages template was not compatible with Clarion/Legacy applications. Fixed.

June 13, 2015:

  1. Template/Classes: Under Windows 10.10130 and earlier builds, the scrolling in the previewer window was not working at all. Fixed.

Version2.7.390 [February 24, 2015]

February 24, 2015:

  1. Installer: Installer is now compatible with Clarion 10.

October 14, 2014:

  1. Template: When printing current page to selected printer, the first page would always be printed. Fixed.

Version 2.7.387 [May 15, 2014]

May 15, 2014:

  1. Template: Added option to specify CSV separator. Defaults to comma ( , )

May 14, 2014:

  1. Template: ITPreviewerClass.inc was not being included with the Printer Selection global extension, only with the Mouse Wheel Support extension. This caused compile errors if the Mouse Wheel Support extension was not added. Fixed.

Version 2.7.385.65 [May 01, 2014]

May 1, 2014:

  1. Template: By accident ,PASCAL attribute on #RUNDLL statement from testing with Clarion 9. Fixed. This is now checked during the build process and always changed to ,WIN32. The installer then determines if it should rename it to ,PASCAL if Previewer is being installed with the new IDE (Clairon 7 and later)
  2. Installer: It was not obvious when the "Clarion 6 Vista Fix" program was running that it wasn't the Previewer installer. The installer will now prompt if you want to run the "Clarion 6 Vista Fix" only when you are installing for Clarion 6 and it hasn't been run before.

April 30, 2014:

  1. Template/Classes: Some reports were still not printing properly. I've added a method called SetReportImageReduce to the ITPreviewerClass (you can access it inside the Previewer procedure as Loc:PrinterClass) It takes two parameters, first one tells the Previewer how much to scale the report image width down and the second tells it how much to scale the height down. This is always in 1/1000" (PROP:Thous)

Version 2.7.377.54 [April 26, 2014]

April 25, 2014:

  1. Template/Classes: Under certain circumstances and with certain paper types, the report pages could be slightly oversized when using the Enable Printer Selection template. This was caused by up to 10/1000" difference in the actual size of the paper and the size reported after changing the paper size. Fixed.
  2. Documentation: Most screenshots updated to Clarion 9.
  3. Documentation: Documentation about CSV export completed.
  4. Documentation: Lots of updates to the documentation.
  5. Documentation: PDF manual was not being generated. Fixed.

March 26, 2014:

  1. Template: Added option to specify number of pixels to scroll with the mouse wheel in the "Mouse Wheel Support in Previewer" extension template.

Version 2.7.368 [February 27, 2014]

February 27, 2014:

  1. Template: Capesoft's Office Inside "Excel Report" did not trigger detection of a target selector. Fixed.

Version 2.7.367.43 [January 28, 2014]

December 12, 2013:

  1. Template: In Clarion 9, the GetSelected() method of the ReportTargetSelectorClass no longer exists. Instead GetReportSelected() needs to be called. This method is used in the "Save As Button"

October 11, 2013:

  1. Template: Problem with CSV export. Selecting controls from the report did not retrieve the header/format from the underlying data field. Fixed.

Version 2.7.364 September 19, 2013]

September 19, 2013:

  1. Template: In Clarion 9 the ReportTargetSelectorClass has changed considerably and a method has been renamed that the Previewer uses. This caused compile errors in Clarion 9 applications that use the previewer and the Output Target Selector. Fixed.

Version 2.7.363 August 8, 2013]

August 2, 2013:

  1. Template: When using Previewer to print to a selected printer, the report engine in Clarion 8 removes all the windows meta files in the temp folder, regardless of if it belongs to the report being printed or not. This update fixes this problem.

Version 2.7.360 [May 17, 2013]

February 7, 2013:

  1. Template: "Clarion 6 support" changed to "Report Target Support" in template prompts and check boxes. This was confusing (to say the least!!!)
  2. Version 2.7.355 [May 4, 2011]

May 4, 2011:

  1. Install: Install did not have correct folder to install Theme Editor when installing for the old IDE (Clarion 6.3 and older) causing an error during install. Fixed.
  2. Install: Install built for Clarion 8.0

Version 2.7.355 [May 4, 2011]

April 30, 2011:

  1. Install: Installer installed the ITPreviewerClass.inc and ITPreviewerClass.clw into %root%\libsrc\win under Clarion 7 instead of %root%\accessory\libsrc\win Fixed.

Version 2.7.351 [December 21, 2010]

December 4, 2010:

  1. Template: Legacy code was being generated into ABC code for "Condition for use". Fixed.
  2. November 11, 2010:

  3. Template: "Condition for use" did not work properly with Legacy applications. Fixed

Version 2.7.349 [July 1, 2010]

June 21, 2010:

  1. Install: The ITCSVExportClass.clw file was not installed for Clarion 7. Fixed
  2. Template: CSV option caused code to generate unconditionally on CPCS reports and caused compiler errors. Fixed.
  3. Clarion 7: Bug in Clarion 7 makes it difficult to to place "Save buttons" or other control templates on the toolbar. Solution: Place control templates on the window and then drag them to the Toolbar. When prompted if you want to move the controls into the Toolbar, click YES.

Version 2.7.346 [June 7, 2010]

June 7, 2010:

  1. Install: Support for Clarion 7.2 added to installer.
  2. May 6, 2010:

  3. Install: Added PreviewerTargetDemo that shows how to implement SV report output targets.
  4. April 18, 2010:

  5. Templates: CSV export did not work with CPCS reports. Fixed.

Version 2.7.342 [March 15, 2010]

March 3, 2010:

  1. Templates: Toolbar in Previewer did not have a use variable. Fixed.

March 2. 2010:

  1. Templates: CSV button had the wrong icon name generated by the template. Fixed.
  2. Templates: CSV global class was not always exported correctly for multi-dll applications. Fixed.
  3. Templates: CSV global class declaration did not have the correct attributes resulting in the CSV option not to work if the previewer procedure was in a different application file than the report. Fixed.

January 19, 2010:

  1. Templates: Added option for 7 button in Save Buttons control template. Note that if you get a compiler error you need to remove the Save Buttons control template and re-add it to the toolbar in the Previewer procedure.
  2. Templates: Added 5 new embeds into the EnableC6Buttons routine.
  3. Templates: Added support for Office Inside Excel (XLM) export.
  4. Templates: Added support for Fomin Report Builder DOC and RTF export.

Version 2.7.330 [December 7, 2009]

December 6, 2009:

  1. Templates: The "Call Previewer" extension caused the Embed editor in Clarion 7 to crash. Fixed.
  2. August 19, 2009:

  3. Templates: If the "Print to selected printer" template was used and a page range was specified, the page range was being reset when the printing was done. Fixed.
  4. August 18, 2009:

  5. Templates: Extra END in the CONTROL section of the ITPCSVSaveButton (beta testing) template. Fixed.

February 9, 2009:

  1. Install: ITPrevTargetDemo.app included in the install. This demo app is the same as the PreviewerDemo.app except it includes the PDF, HTML, TXT and XML export target templates.
  2. January 22, 2009:

  3. Templates: Missing setting a template symbol in ITPEXT2.TPW Fixed.

Version 2.7.319 [January 1, 2009]

January 1, 2009:

  1. Templates: Missing setting a template symbol in ITPEXT.TPW Fixed.
  2. Templates: %ITPTemplateName was still referenced in ITPEXT.TPW. Removed.
  3. Templates: Redeclaration of several (new) symbols in ITPEXT.TPW. Removed.

November 9, 2007:

  1. Classes: OMIT() in ITPreviewerClass.INC caused problems in Clarion 6.3 build 9057. Fixed.
  2. Templates: Page of Pages template had an Include() statement for the Icetips Utilities. Removed.
  3. Templates: Page of Pages template needs to have the Icetips Utilities Global template added. Currently this is just documented as a note on the template. In next build I will make the utilities template required by the Page of Pages template since it is absolutely dependent.
  4. Install: New install built for version 2.60.100

Version 2.600 [October 2, 2007]

October 2, 2007:

  1. Demo app: The demo app was using CSIDL_COMMON_APPDATA\Icetips Creative\Previewer Demo\Data as data path. Changed to use CSIDL_COMMON_APPDATA\Icetips Creative\Previewer Demo

  3. Demo app: Added Video window for training videos (upcoming).
  4. Install: Added Video path (upcoming).

September 27, 2007:

  1. Templates: The ITPReportWriterReports,'Icetips Previewer - Report Writer support' template used the same embed symbol for before and after calling the previewer causing the same embed to appear in both places. Fixed.

September 13, 2007:

  1. Templates: Added option to Global cascading template to check for embedded code in the AskPreview method. If there is embedded code there, such as code to print final totals or grandtotals, this code will most likely be omitted by the previewer code and never execute. This option exports each report to TXA and searches through the TXA for embeds in AskPreview and then writes all the procedure names that do have code to a text file and opens in with whatever program is associated with .txt files.

September 12, 2007:

  1. Classes: Omitted class code in ITPreviewerClass.inc was being exported since the ABCReader does not obey OMITted statements in the .inc header files. Fixed

August 31, 2007:

Version 2.202 [April 13, 2006]

April 13, 2006:

  1. Classes: The ITPreviewer.inc was missing the !ABCIncludeFile at the top so it did not export from exporting dlls. Fixed.

Version 2.0 [March 22, 2004]

March 18, 2004:

March 10, 2004:

  1. Template: Added several embed points to the PrinterSelection routines. This allows to set report properties before the report is printed.
  2. Template: Added option to set the Target() to the report just before calling the previewer. This allows you to reference the report inside the previewer. A ReportRef reference variable is also added when using the Printer Selection templates. Loc:ReportJobName variable added that contains the jobname of the original report.

  1. Template: Verified that it works with Vivid-Help Email Report after the last changes.

February 27, 2004:
