Data bands

Top  Previous  Next

Now we will learn how to print data from DB tables or from queries. What is considered to be a 'table' or a 'query'? They consist of data organized into lines (records or rows) which contain one or more columns (fields). To print this sort of data FastReport uses a special type of band, the various bands which are named  "...Data". To print a whole table or just some of its rows and fields, you must add one or more of these bands to the report, connect them to the table and place field objects within them. When FastReport builds the report, the bands will be printed on the output page, once for each record in the table.  If there is no free space left on the output page for a band, a new output page will be created by the report engine before continuing.
