Dear Creatio Team,

I am working on Creatio reports using FastReport. It is required to create tables inside rich text of Fast report and upload frx file to generate the output. But the output doesn't show the table in the rich text as it gets shrunk to a single cell every time. I have attached the snapshot of the RTF table in the fast report and its output in creatio.

RTF Table

Creatio output of this table

It can be seen in the output file that all 6 cells of the table are shrinking to a single cell. Is there any problem with the RTF code or in Creatio Fast report integration.I have attached the RTF code used to build this table in the Fast report.Please provide a solution to my query.

Hello Akash!

In order to solve the issue, it's necessary to do the following steps:
 

On the Creatio side:

1. Create the fast report record in the "Reports" section and create the FastReport data provider source code in configurations.

2. Create the DataProvider source code. 

Once the DataProvider is created data was sent to the FastReport template for further processing. From now development starts which is not related to Creatio functionality - FastReport template logic modification.

On FastReport side:

 

3.  There is a "Code" tab in the FastReport template designer. There you need to write logic for String formation (here you can find some examples of how to do it https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.string.format?view=n…)

 

Here is the link to the article on Creatio Academy for your reference https://academy.creatio.com/docs/developer/elements_and_components/repo…

 
In addition, please check the link of FastReport academy https://www.fastreport.ru/public_download/html/UserManFrNET-en/index.ht… where you can find information on how to operate with data sources, system variables, report parameters and so on.

Just confirming- Do I need to make a table in RTF by writing logic for String formation in Code tab of Fast Report?

Hello Akash!

Yes, you are right. You need to make a table in RTF in the Code tab of Fast Report.

Thank you Tetiana for your solution. It will be easier to work for small tables. But I work mostly with complex tables of 8" size and it will be quite time-consuming to prepare each cells by code. In such a case, is there any other lesser time-consuming solution?
