Thanks,

So adding an empty source file was the trick Cool

I saw you imported all the header files into the project but I'm not sure that's necessary. All boost headers are intended to be used with
#include "boost/xxxxx"

So adding path to "boost" should be sufficient.
OTOH the header if you don't import them files are not visible in TheIDE so why not Rolling Eyes

NB:
- you imported what is inside boost and named your project boost so the paths boost/xxxx remain true. But you lost the boost version information on the way: maybe that's not so important after all.
What I wanted was to be able to select the boost version I compile with.

- I think I'm gonna have to revisit my 7z archiver, the best I get is 2.3 Mb for the complete Report Generator while you get 1Mb. Something is definitly not working the way I expect it Wink
==> command line works fine, it seems taht Xarchiver under linux does not do his job correctly

I think you can create a new assemblies for that purpose, e.g. Boost_1_40_0, Boost_1_41_0, etc., while your packages will use boost package as reference.

The 7zip archiver created solid archive with Ultra compression level and LZMA compression method.

With special command line utility I made Boost 1.41.0 U++ package for include files. Who interested can download it from attachments. But be warned about boost/test/utils directory files which you can remove from package or fix it.

This is probably a stupid question, but why do you need Boost? If one of the Boost libs have some useful functionality that is missing from U++, maybe it will be added in the future?

I just did some help for Didier. Moreover, if you think you or somebody else can improve U++ with (converted) Boost functionality it can be done, e.g., when you see a whole picture in packages. Also its good stress test for Assist++. The LLVM, cURL, etc. is not exception.

Hello, Didier.

Just download your reconfigured packages and see how it was done:
ReportGeneratorComplete.7z (1 Mb).



Hello,

I am not able to download this package on the external site.
It seems the problem as been resolved. Let me ask you to repost the package in this forum removing the bad ones.

Thank you,

Which feature of Boost were used ?

boost::spirit v. 2 parsing library;
boost::variant;
BOOST_FOREACH macro;

The most important part is boost::spirit. Manual coding of parsers is quite inefficient and error-prone.

mhhh... parse vars that are all in form '##sometext' is quite easy and efficient with simple Upp code imho....

Yes. Parsing of simple stuff is easy. But when syntax gets more complicated it is almost impossible to develop something working. Do not forget about error reporting and debugging of grammars. It is often very hard just to design a grammar for your language.

boost::spirit produces code, which is very efficient, and you can declare your LL grammar right in the C++ code. That saves time Smile

Hello all,

The reason why I used boost::spirit is for the parser.


Quote:

Although searching text inside a string is quite easy. Making a full featured parser is another thing.
If you want to be able to modify easily you're syntax, for changes or enhancements, boost::spirit is very very handy.
And managing nesting and sequencing was "immediate" while managing header/body/footer was trivial.

Quote:

Thanks Novo Smile

Maybe for this simple parser it's like using a hammer to kill a bug, but the bug has no way to escape.

I love Upp but I don't think that all the rest is bad work, so why reinvent the wheel especially for such specific task as parsing ?
And besides that, most of the boost work is Upp compliant and could help Upp in many ways.

And finally it's much faster to do a parser, at least for me, using boost::spirit than hardcoding it from scratch.

If someone want's to write an Upp version of the parser: go for it, the boost part is completely isolated from the user view: all a user application needs is the ReportGenerator.h file ... where all is Upp.

... Didn't look at code yet, anyways.

The code is not finished yet and needs some cleaning: file renaming, refactoring, ....

Hi,
Is my ReportGenerator package eligible for Bazaar inclusion although it uses Boost ??



Luigi,
I've made some enhancements in order to be able to remove sections or body if needed for the cases where there is no data to display.
Do you need it now ? ( I'm not very happy with the API so I'm trying it out before updating the package)

I make my 3 cents in the common fund decisions.

For my needs, I made a simple report editor which allows users to easily edit the reporting forms.

Allows:
- Substitute the arbitrary variables and functions (defined at the stage of application programming);
- Generate reports on the database (well, or for any tabular data);
- Insert images, and graphics functions (including data from the database);



Hello,

I was trying to put the Sergey's test case package in the form of class. But I'm having problem with the callbacks in the constructor. I want they become member functions of the class but I do not know how to do it. At the moment the compiler complains. Perhaps the fix is very easy. Here is my experiement. I called the class MakeBadge:

Thank you,
Luigi

#include <RepGen/RepGen.h>
using namespace Upp;

class MakeBadge {
	Vector<String> STRINGS;
	int STRINGS_COUNT;
	int STRINGS_I;
	int TOTAL;

	RepGen rep;
	void ClentCallbackReportVar();
	void ClentCallbackReportFinish();
	void ClentCallbackCalcStart();
	void ClentCallbackCalcBody();
	void ClentCallbackCalcFinish();
	MakeBadge();
}

//Client Callbacks
void MakeBadge::ClentCallbackReportVar() {
	rep.SubstVar("##NAMECORRFROM","Кредит-NEW-банк");
	rep.SubstVar("##BANKCORRFROM","НацПроМ1& БАнк банк");
};

void MakeBadge::ClentCallbackReportFinish() {
	rep.SubstVar("##TOTAL",Format("%`",TOTAL));
};


void MakeBadge::ClentCallbackCalcStart() {
	STRINGS_COUNT = STRINGS.GetCount();
	STRINGS_I = 0;
	TOTAL = 0;
};
void MakeBadge::ClentCallbackCalcBody() {
	//LOG("ClentCallbackCalcBody");
	Vector<String> V = Split(STRINGS[STRINGS_I],';',false);
	//DUMPC(V);
	
	rep.SubstVarInLoopBody("##PROJECTN",TrimBoth(V.At(0)));
	rep.SubstVarInLoopBody("##PROJECTN",TrimBoth(V.At(0)));
	rep.SubstVarInLoopBody("##PROJECT`_NAME",TrimBoth(V.At(1)));
	rep.SubstVarInLoopBody("##DETAILID",TrimBoth(V.At(2)));
	rep.SubstVarInLoopBody("##COMPANY",TrimBoth(V.At(3)));
	rep.SubstVarInLoopBody("##WAREH`_COMP",TrimBoth(V.At(4)));
	rep.SubstVarInLoopBody("##QUANT",TrimBoth(V.At(5)));
	rep.SubstVarInLoopBody("##SIT",TrimBoth(V.At(6)));
	String pictaddr;

	if (V.GetCount()>=8 && !TrimBoth(V.At(7)).IsEmpty()) {
		pictaddr = TrimBoth(V.At(7));
		if (!pictaddr.IsEmpty()) {
#ifdef PLATFORM_X11
			pictaddr = GetHomeDirectory()+"/MyApps/RepGenTest/"+pictaddr;
			DUMP(pictaddr);
#endif
			Image im = StreamRaster::LoadFileAny(pictaddr);
			rep.PlaceImageInLoopBody( "##IMAGE", im, Size(1100,700) );
//			rep.PlaceImageInLoopBody( "##IMAGE", im );
		}
	} 
	else {
		rep.SubstVarInLoopBody("##IMAGE","");
	}
	TOTAL += 1;
	if(++STRINGS_I==STRINGS_COUNT) rep.LoopDone();
	
};

void MakeBadge::ClentCallbackCalcFinish() {
	//LOG("ClentCallbackCalcFinish");

};

MakeBadge::MakeBadge()
{
	STRINGS = Split(LoadFile("DATA.csv"), '\n', true);

	rep.RepGenReportVar       = callback(ClentCallbackReportVar);
	rep.RepGenReportFinish    = callback(ClentCallbackReportFinish);
	rep.RepGenCalculateStart  = callback(ClentCallbackCalcStart);
	rep.RepGenCalculateBody   = callback(ClentCallbackCalcBody);
	rep.RepGenCalculateFinish = callback(ClentCallbackCalcFinish);
	
	SetLanguage(GetSystemLNG()& 0xfffff);
	
	rep.SetTemplate(LoadFile("REPORT_TEMPLATE.QTF"));
	
	rep.Perform();	
}

Hello, Luigi! First of all. Thanks for testing RepGen! I tried my module in simple terms, but when it came to complex applications, I realized that RepGen far from ideal, I almost completely rewrote RepGen - now code complete reenterability, and challenges are organized much easier. Just tomorrow I will try to lay out a new version of SVN with examples. It remains only examples of change under the new method call. Incidentally, I found a few annoying bugs that have already been corrected.

Regarding the code that you gave in your message, I'll see it tomorrow. (sorry, the work flunked)

I've forgot to say. The next version will call nested queries, and will probably easily insert a table into a table or several tables to combine in a single table. Here's an example:

index.php?t=getfile&id=2403&private=0

Real Code for Generate Report:
void AnketaListDlg::PrintResumeList_ReportFinish(){
	rep.SubstVar("##DATE",AsString(GetSysDate()));
	rep.SubstVar("##TOTAL",AsString(TOTAL));
}
void AnketaListDlg::PrintResumeList_CalcBody(){
	RepGenSubProc repPositions(rep, "##POSB","##POSE");
	RepGenSubProc repPositions1(rep, "##POSB1","##POSE1",true);
	RepGenSubProc repEducations(rep, "##EDUB","##EDUE");

	repPositions.RepGenSubProcBody = THISBACK(PrintResumeList_CalcPosBody);
	repPositions1.RepGenSubProcBody = THISBACK(PrintResumeList_CalcPosBody);
	repEducations.RepGenSubProcBody = THISBACK(PrintResumeList_CalcEduBody);

	Sql sql;
	
	TOTAL=0;
	sql * SqlSelect(SqlAll()).From(ANKETA);
	while (sql.Fetch()) {
		
		rep.RepGenCalculateBodyBeforeSubst();
		TOTAL++;
		gANK_ID = sql[ANK_ID];
		rep.SubstVar("##TOTAL",AsString(TOTAL));
		rep.SubstVar("##FIO",(String)sql[ANK_NAME]);
		rep.SubstVar("##NUM",AsString(sql[ANK_ID]));
		rep.SubstVar("##ANKDATE",AsString(sql[ANK_DATE]));
		rep.SubstVar("##PHONE",AsString(sql[ANK_PHONE]));
		rep.SubstVar("##PHONE1",((String)sql[ANK_PHONE])); 
		rep.SubstVar("##BIRTHDAY",AsString((Date)(sql[ANK_BIRTHDAY])));
		rep.SubstVar("##CHILDREN",AsString(sql[ANK_CHILDREN]));
				rep.SubstVar("##OWNCAR",Single<ConvYesNo>().Format(sql[ANK_OWNCAR]));
		rep.SubstVar("##SMOKER",Single<ConvYesNo>().Format(sql[ANK_SMOKER]));
		rep.SubstVar("##CANBLINDTYPE",Single<ConvYesNo>().Format(sql[ANK_CANBLINDTYPE]));
		rep.SubstVar("##SPEEDOFTYPING",AsString(sql[ANK_SPEEDOFTYPING]));
		rep.SubstVar("##SPEEDOFTYPLAT",AsString(sql[ANK_SPEEDOFTYPINGLAT]));
		rep.SubstVar("##FILEMAKING",Single<ConvYesNo>().Format(sql[ANK_FILEMAKING]));
		rep.SubstVar("##SALARY",AsString(sql[ANK_SALARY]));
		rep.SubstVar("##CURRENCY",AsString(sql[ANK_CURRENCYOFSALARY]));
		rep.SubstVar("##HOMEADDRESS",AsString(sql[ANK_HOMEADDRESS]));						//
		
		if (rep.ExistVar("##PHOTO")) {
			Image im_photo = PNGRaster().LoadString(sql[ANK_PHOTO]);
			rep.PlaceImage("##PHOTOMIN",im_photo,Size(300,300));						
			rep.PlaceImage("##PHOTOMID",im_photo,Size(800,800));						
			rep.PlaceImage("##PHOTOMAX",im_photo,Size(1200,1200));						
			rep.PlaceImage("##PHOTOEXTRA",im_photo,Size(4200,4200));						
		}

		repPositions.DoCalc();
		repPositions1.DoCalc();
		repEducations.DoCalc();
		rep.RepGenCalculateBodyAfterSubst();
	}
}

void AnketaListDlg::PrintResumeList_CalcPosBody(){
	Sql sql;
	sql * SqlSelect(SqlAll()).From(ANKETAPOSITION).Where(ANP_ANKETAID == gANK_ID);
	while (sql.Fetch()) {
		rep.RepGenCalculateBodyBeforeSubst();
		rep.SubstVar("##POSNAME",PositionConvert().Format((int)(sql[ANP_POSITIONID])));
		rep.RepGenCalculateBodyAfterSubst();
	}

}
...
...
...
...


And in header file (In Parent window TopWindow class definition):
	int TOTAL;
	RepGen rep;
	
	
	void PrintResume_ReportFinish();
	void PrintResume_CalcPosBody();
	void PrintResume_CalcEduBody();

Hi Luigi and Sergey,

I see you added nesting, great !

Sergey, I didn't have time to work out with you the regexp in order to kick out boost::spirit from my ReportGenerator but hopefully I'll come to it soon.
