Xbase ++ users need to think about a new Report Generator.

FastReport will eventually cease to be operational. But it is still very good and usable.

What is it that we will replace it with?

Tom specializes in List & Label Report Generator. It's a shame it didn't work with FastReport software as well. We need a list of all the advantages and disadvantages of List & Label software over FastReport software.


Because there are other companies that make Report Generators that support working with Xbase ++, so deciding which of these software to use is a very thankless job.

Because such a decision cannot be made without a lot of work and testing of each of these software. And who today has the strength and time for that, if he is a specialist for FastReport, and FastReport still works simply, easily, quickly and flawlessly.


Xbase++ korisnici moraju da razmišljaju o novom Report Generatoru.

FastReport će vremenom prestati da bude operativan. Ali još je jako dobar i upotrebljiv.

Šta je to sa čime ćemo ga zameniti ?

Tom se specijalizovao za List&Label Report Generator. Šteta je što nije radio i sa FastReport softverom. Potrebna nam je lista svih prednosti i nedostataka List&Label softvera u odnosu na FastReport softver.

Zašto ?

Zato što ima još firmi koje prave Report Generatore koji podržavaju rad sa Xbase++, pa je donošenje odluke koji od tih softvera koristiti veoma nezahvalan posao.

Jer ne može se doneti takva odluka bez velikog rada i testiranja svakog od tih softvera. A ko danas za to ima snage i vremena, ako je specijalista za FastReport, a FastReport i dalje radi prosto, lako, brzo i besprekorno.

Hi Slobodan/Others

I do NOT agree that the way to go is to get alternative for fastreport. Everything about fastreport is awesome. What I suggest we do is to emulate what the folks at harbour did Harbour and Xbase++ share a lot in common. Using ot4xb.dll it should be possible to create a version of fastreport for Xbase++

That is my take.
