In very old versions of Infomaker (6.5) it was possible to view report results with Print Preview turned off. However this feature was taken away from Infomaker at some point so reports can now only be viewed ever in Print.Preview mode. I know that in Powerbuilder if a report contains a nested report or graph it is forced to print preview mode but even when I open a very simple tabular datawindow the print preview option on the File menu is checked and disabled. We use Infomaker as a tool that is integrated into our application to allow customers to create their own reports. We then run these reports from within our Powerbuilder application and give them the option to view the report with Print Preview off or on. For our customers who are creating tabular or grid datawindows this is a real pain because they cannot easiliy browse the results until they are back viewing the reports in our application. In addition it becomes next to impossible for the developer to reorder the grid columns (which is easily done in preview mode). I know that Powerbuilder/Infomaker can handle this so any know if this is a feature that might be restored - Chris Pollach?
Any ideas anyone?
In the screenshot below this is a very simple datawindow yet Print Preview is disabled and checked!
