How do I create a hardcopy report?

Recommended Posts


I got my first SQLite program running and it produces some nice data that I can view in the console window with _SQLite_Display2DResult($aResult) or view an array of the returned data with _ArrayDisplay($aResult) or _SqliteDisplay($aResult). However, I'd like to do some custom formatting and place text and data where I want to on a report. I'd like an option to save the report as a text file to disk or print it as well. I thought about having my script start Notepad and send the text to it to create a report, but there's a couple of downsides there: the user could change the data before printing and other problems, like it takes forever to send several hundreds of characters to it. I tried creating a variable which I loaded with the data wrapped around a bunch of html and then wrote the variable to an html file. When I opened the file in a browser, it was fast, but it's a pain formatting all the html code.

Short of buying a report writer, isn't there some way of creating an empty window and filling it with text (with some save and print options)?

You don't need to do it in a "visible" way.

Have a look at: FileOpen, FileWrite, FileWriteLine, _FileWriteFromArray, FileClose ...

You will definitely get an idea about how to write your info in a file.

SNMP_UDF ... for SNMPv1 and v2c so far, GetBulk and a new example script

wannabe "Unbeatable" Tic-Tac-Toe

Paper-Scissor-Rock ... try to beat it anyway :)
