[WD17] Default papersize at creating a report

Startbeitrag von Stefan Bentvelsen am 20.06.2013 09:03

Hi all,

when I create a new report, the papersize default is 'Legal'.
Is there a possebility to change that default value in 'A4' ? If yes, where ?


Hello Stefan

There are quite a lot of options for iParameter() that should do the jobs for you

Hi Al,

may be, I was not clear enough.

I did mean the default papersize for creating a report in the standard report editor. Thus also not the reports&queries-module.

Hello Stefan

Sorry for misunderstanding your question, on re-reading, your intent was clear.

I have not created a report entirely from scratch for many years, but when I looked tonight, my Windev defaults to 8 x 5 which is the US standard. It would be nice if it defaulted to the generally accepted country standard size as MS Word does - when I set my country to Australia, it automatically sets the default document page size to A4.

I have three or four standard report formats that I use as defaults for every new report, so once they are setup there is no problem to open and SaveAs to create a base for a new report

If I remember correctly, the report editor is using by default the defautl setting of the default printer on your system...

So if you can go in yuour printer settings and change that default to whatever you want, you should get that in the report editor

And by the way, if it was a fixed settings, it would be A4, as it is the french default.

Best regards

Hi Fabrice,

in my case PDFCreator is my default printer and it is set to papersize A4, but at creating a (new) report in the report editor, I still get 'Letter (8,5 x 11inch) as default papersize.
I had some other (no default) printers that where default set on papersize 'Letter'. So I all changed them to papersize A4, restarted WinDev, but it does not help.
There must be another setting, somewhere.
