Generate Fancy Report - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

Is there any resource/sample to generating a fancy report?

I was downloaded this resource and try the example, but it failed to execution due to function not define. PDF

My simple idea of generating the report would be like this:-

Read data from excel instead of database, then generate PDF report based on my custom design.

Any better ideas is much appreciate to share with me here

Thanks.

in that udf, the "function not defined" error, is caused by the lack of the _Iif() function.
have a look to this post (https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/187723-create-a-pdf-with-own-style/?do=findComment&comment=1348757) for a workaround to that problem and also as an easy example to generate "fancy" reports.

@gahhon Give also an example of Excel data - is it named fields, columns, etc, or how do you find your data in your spreadsheet?

What kind of report do you need? Is it a single-page, lots of numbers kind of thing, or a many-pages bla-bla report?

Does the output of the script need to be a PDF, or could it be e.g. Word, which you then "print" to a PDF?

Indeed. And I test run your example script is not what I am looking for.
Your script is return a PDF with Calendar print on graph paper.

What I am looking for is normal blank background with printed data.

Usually the Excel is act like a table right. So in the Excel file there should be Header Row and Header Left Column, and within of them there should be have their appropriate data.

Regarding the paging, I cannot say is single page or multiple page, it still have to depending the volume of the data.

I think PDF would be the common report format?

Thanks for moving the topic.

As you seem to have Excel installed on your computer I assume the same for Word.
It should be simple to copy/paste data from Excel to Word, arrange/format it and then save it as PDF.

      Hi, 
      This is my very first post in this forum and am also new with Autoit programming so be easy on me.
      Below is the code that I am trying to get the index of the item selected. No problem getting the text.
      Case $listEdition   ; handle of the list             local $index=0             $item=GUICTRLRead($listEdition)    ; This will return the text in the list             ; ==============   The loop below always fails  ==================             ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ???????              For $i = 0 To $editionArray[0] - 1   ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray[0] contains total count of items                 If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then                     $index = $i                     exitloop                 EndIf              Next              ;===================================================             ConsoleWrite( "Select Edition:     " & $item & "  index: " & $index & @CR) ....... Please look at the comments in the code & the pix attached.
      _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always returns FALSE.
      Another problem is on the list. It also populate  the total count of items from the Array. How can I skip this item from populating to the list ?.
      Please advise and thanks

      is it possible to make a wall chams in rainbow six siege using autoit scripts? tell me please and how .

      Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open.  So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal.  What could be the problem here.  please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.

      Hi everyone!

      I'm using AutoIt for several years now and I really get the hang of it!
      I'm quite the curious OCD perfectionist kind of guy, so I can't help wondering..
      what would be the best way to program stuff for the compiler / interpreter / scripting engine?
      We're talking about the inner workings of the AutoIt's core here, and how to give it as less friction as possible but also take care of the machine running the script.
      For example,
      Imagine a script where we would constantly have to assign a Boolean value to a variable:
      ; A: local $bool = false $bool = true $bool = true $bool = false ; B: local $bool = false check(true) check(true) check(false) func check($b) if $bool = $b then return $bool = $b endfunc In this case, would it be better to just overwrite (A) the variable or first check if we really need to (B)?
      What would be best for the computers memory if it had to do this for a year non stop?
      Another example, imagine you're writing a function with an if statement.
      If you would look under the hood of AutoIt, what would be the best way to give your computer as less work / code nesting stack filling as possible:
      ; A: func decide($b_Input) if $b_Input then ;do something else ;do something else endif endfunc ; B: func decide($b_Input) if $b_Input then ;do something return endif ;do something else endfunc Last one for now:
      ; A: while 1 ; do stuff wend ; B: while true ; do stuff wend Isn't AutoIt taking an extra step in converting 1 to a Boolean in example (A)?
      Or is it the other way around and does the (B) way make AutoIt first convert a keyword (true or false) to a numerical value (0 or 1).
      I think this kinda detail stuff is quite interesting, makes me wonder how AutoIt converts and runs our code.
      What are your opinions on this topic?
      Any coders who know more about the inner workings of AutoIt?
      Any people like me who ask themselves similar questions (with examples)?

      Let me know! 😉
