Adding 97 improvements and 39 new features, REALbasic 2009 Release 4 offers the most requested feature from REALbasic users, reporting! Also included in this release for REAL Studio only is build automation. Finally, our new feedback system is now live.
The new report editor allows developers to visually create a layout for printing by dragging and dropping labels, fields, images and more. Reports can be created to print a single page or multiple pages. The layout is divided into sections (header, body, footer as well as grouping sections for reports that have sorted data).
Reporting in REALbasic
The new build automation feature of the Project Editor is only available in the REAL Studio Edition. With Build Automation, developers can visually drag and drop build steps to execute common actions (like copying files and running IDE scripts) before and/or after their application is built. All of this can be done from within their project.
