Changing report properties from within Rev
Posted by Pete Whittet on July 10, 2009 at 1:21am
I would like to add a "Preferences" option to my app, to allow users to choose a report font. Can this somehow be done from within a Rev app, by changing the font property of fields within the .qrl file ?

The .qrl file is in a proprietary binary format that can't be easily tweaked from a Rev app other than the Layout Builder. Slowly but steadily, I am working on version 2.0 which will sport a completely rewritten layout editor, written to be embeddable into other applications. It is currently penciled in for 2010 Q3.
There may be some other way to achieve this today, but I'll have to ponder it a bit and hope it's not too complicated.

Thanks for looking at this. If you do have a flash of inspiration for a workaround, I'd be most grateful. I'm very pleased with QR, though - it's working well.
