Report vs Form size

Report vs Form size in Paradox Reports topic (part of our Corel Paradox / ObjectPAL Coding group).

Quick Search: Report Form   Report Form size  

I'm having a bit of an issue with the window size of my reports and forms.  I want my forms to remain at the full size of the screen.  Under Form Data Properties I have checked off size to fit, I have several forms and when I open them they remain at full screen.

The problem is that when I run reports they always come up a smaller screen size eventhough I have size to fit checked off under properties.  This wouldn't be much of a problem except for the fact that whenever I do open up a report not only does it shrink the report size but it shrinks the size of all the open forms, then after I close the report I have to maximize all my forms again.  This is driving me nuts as I run reports all day long. 

Any suggestions?

In general the open state of a report or form is determined by the state of the report or form when it was last saved.   So if you want the form or report to open maximized you have to save the form or report in a maximized state.  If you are not opening the reports using code there isnt much you can do to override this charactistic.  In the case of a form you can add the "maximize()" function to the setfocus event of the form to cause the form to maximize when the form gets the focus.

I have just recently come across a service which allows you to fill out or edit PDF forms online without having to download any software. I was able to print out my document and even fax it online. Please check this website
I'm sure you will definitely find the service useful and easy to use.
