Reports can be delivered in web applications in the following ways:
- PDF: In order to render the most accurate reproduction of reports, the Portable Document Format is the best choice, fully supporting the graphical design capabilities of DataFlex Reports.
- HTML: The most “natural” way to deliver reports in a web application is probably the HTML format. Special classes support paging and zooming.
- IMAGE: Reports exported as GIF or JPEG files can be viewed in the viewer class. The viewer class combines the image files of one report and show them as one report as it should be.
