The example report will contain just one piece of information : “Hello, World!”. Open the report designer and click on the “Text” button in the Object toolbar. Move the mouse cursor over the page and click again. The object  is inserted at the mouse position.




The text editor window will be opened right away; if it does not appear automatically then double-click the object. Text editor opening can be configured in the designer settings - see later on. Type in “Hello, World!” and then click the ОК button.




The report design is finished. To preview the report either select the “File>Preview” menu item or click the corresponding button in the toolbar. The preview window containing a report page with the “Hello, World!” text will appear. This report can be printed out, saved to a file (*.fp3), or exported to one of the supported export formats.
