What is good replacement for FastReports?

Recommended Posts

DCE 10.4 does not include FastReport. Bummer. That breaks a lot of my apps.

Does anyone know of a good replacement fpr FR?

Can't you just buy a FastReport Standard license? That should work with the Community Edition as well.

I use Delphi CE because it is free to use. FR std is $299. I am retired and on a broken income (well it certainly has not been fixed!). Spending $300 bucks is not an option.

Hey, Vandrovnik, thanks for the tip. I went to Emba and d/l'ed code from github.

I ran frcInstall. It is in a different language, Brazilian maybe? I was able to install the package.

Now I need to see how to use it.

Thanks...Dan'l

Portuguese is spoken in Brazil. That's just for a possible translation.

Thanks, all.

FortesReport look sgood but it in in Portgues. 

In FR, the language is set by this code:
procedure DetectLocale;

{$IfNDef MSWINDOWS}
var
  dlct: string;
{$EndIf}
begin
{$IfNDef MSWINDOWS}
  dlct := AnsiUpperCase(Copy(GetEnvironmentVariable('LANG'), 1, 2));
  if dlct = 'EN' then
    LocaleStrings := EnglishStrings
  else if dlct = 'PT' then
    LocaleStrings := PortugueseStrings
  else if dlct = 'ES' then

but is not working, it always returns as "PT".

I have set a breakpoint at dlct := but it don't break. Yes the build configuration is DEBUG.

Can anyone help me with this?

This kind of lib is considered Pro so I doubt you can find something equally powerful for free. You can try appropriate section of my Awesome Pascal list or switch to another tech (manually-constructed HTML report maybe). It all depends on your needs. If you really develop your apps for free and they help many people (IDK, maybe charity or smth similar) try to contact with FR and explain the situation.
