>How do I implement these parameters in my print method?
One way would be to collect the user input for copies, etc. and just pass things as parameters to the report $construct...
Set report name rRecordList
Print report (iReportTitle,iDataList,iTableClassname,iIncludeDetails,iNumCopies,iBkgdImage)
Then in the report $construct you could copy all the parameters into instance variables first, and print the report from there...
# get parameters into instance variables
Calculate iTitle as pReportTitle
Calculate iDataList as pDataList
Calculate iTableClassname as pTableClassname
Calculate iIncludeDetails as pIncludeDetails
Calculate iNumCopies as pNumCopies
Calculate iBkgdImage as pBkgdImage
# set things up
Do $cinst.$copies.$assign(iNumCopies) ## or maybe you need to assign $root.$prefs.$copies before the report instantiates?
# .. etc. for your title and tableClassname parameters ..
# print the report
For iDataList.$line from 1 to iDataList.$linecount
Then in the $print method of the detail section, you can test whether to include those lines -
and that would suppress whatever section you put it in when the test is false. You can use positioning sections this way to include/suppress single lines within a detail section.
But I'm not sure if number of copies is useful when printing to PDF because there's no mechanism for supplying a second, third etc. PDF filename.
Hope it helps,
