Code Examples

he following quick and simple examples demonstrate how easy to integrate and use NCReport in any Qt application. The codes are Qt4.6 - Qt5.8 compatible. The project file settings are based on Qt .pro file syntax.

Run report to the preview window 2.

                                        
                                           	int main(int argc, char *argv[])

											    // error handling
											    if( report->hasError())
											    {
											        QMessageBox msgBox;
											        msgBox.setText(QObject::tr("Report error: ") + report->lastErrorMsg());
											        msgBox.exec();
											    }

Run report to PDF

                                        
                                           	int main(int argc, char *argv[])
