    Wow, thankyou Yvonne.. I did not want you to waste your time ..
    when I have a little time, I'll try to investigate thoroughly.
    one last question, I can manage a graph report with "sections" that I can hide? for example, print the footer only at the last page and get the full page on the previous pages?

    Don't underestimate what can be done in .rsp pages phabio. You can generate any style of report and save them as a pdf file which can be emailed using the built in sendmail() function.

    You can equally do the same in JavaScript .jssp pages.

    If you include the lib:/bootstrap/bootstrap.css file in your .rsp file you can spice up the report with nice fonts and other fancy styling, even add background watermarks to the pages of the report.

    Bear in mind Yvonne did this to show you that it *can* be done in less than a day.

    Lianja has a ton of functionality that is built in but it also lets you write your own custom tools that are automatically loaded when you startup the App Builder. These tools can be written in VFP, PHP, Python or JavaScript and have complete access to all the built in UI classes in Lianja. It is a relatively trivial task to write a "Report Wizard" (hosted as an extension in the "Tools" workspace) that generates a report based on report templates such as what Yvonne has just demonstrated to you.

    Its just a matter of knowing what is there are how best to use it.

    Hi Fabio,

    Not a waste of time - I'm sure it will be a tutorial or an activity in a training course in the future

    Have a look at the Stackable Sections demonstrated in the example_tabletui App.

    Regards,

    Yvonne

    I have no doubt about the potential .. but with VFP, with little effort could do several things on report .. with Lianja for my ignorance, no.
    When there are examples of how to create reports like the one shown, where the page break is automatically according to the paper (now reports dgli come up with examples written in the middle between a sheet and another), with dynamic sections, whith picture, grid, etc etc...

    I can create a report.

    without examples, with report designer tool is simpler ... by code is more complicated ..

    You asked for an example of an invoice which Yvonne took the time to provide for you, you them move on to another topic showing little interest in how it was done.

    You know fine well that a Visual Report Designer is planned for v1.1 as stated on the roadmap. Repeating the same questions over and over will not cause v1.1 to get closer and closer, nor do i find it at all constructive. I would suggest that you go read the criteria that an MVP is chosen for. This is a developer community and I appreciate constructive suggestions which will improve Lianja, Criticism is all fine and well but focussing on features and functionality which is already documented on the roadmap serves no useful purpose.

    if you want to expand your knowledge of HTML5/CSS take a look at this question on stack overflow which explains how to split long HTML tables across multiple printed pages.

    Barry you're right, I apologize if sometimes exaggerate or jump from one topic to another.
    In the management of data, I think I'm right, but I think many people, like me, do not have a lot of experience on how to make a report in this way .. I do not want to rush anyone saying "I wait for the graphical tool to make the report" .. simply, I will wait ..
    I have no hurry ..

    I really appreciate the effort that the whole team is making Lianja to complete the development VFP programmers who can carry this all to a new system of development.

    and if I promised Lasagna for all those who pass by here .. it is precisely because I respect you all.
    I do so many questions because I lost a lot of time looking development tools that give me satisfaction .. and I've lost a lot of Lianja ..
    and my difficulty with English makes me more difficult to understand and explain things.
    thank you all.
