WINDEV, WEBDEV and WINDEV Mobile propose several print methods:
  • the report editor, that is used to create "Preset reports".
  • the print functions in WLanguage.

The report editor

The report editor is used to create printed reports (in report or label format) containing information coming from data files.
We recommend that you create the printed reports with the report editor rather than with the WLanguage functions.
Java The reports created with the report editor are not available.

The print functions in WLanguage

However, for very specific development work, the report editor may not allow you to create the requested reports. In this case, you must use the print functions of WLanguage.
Caution: This chapter describes the principle for printing in WLanguage.
