FastReport fetch data

I have this project on c# windows forms and what I have to do is get some data from a web service and present them to FastRaport. I have tried display them on a DataGridView first and then fetching the data from it and it works pretty nice. I can download the file and then it gives me a dialog asking me in what format do I want to save it. But now the requirement is to not use gridview at all, just a button that would convert directly those data into a PDF file.

 Can you please help me with a pseudo code at least or a reference link or something? I would really appreciate it.


  • Here's my code for displaying the data into DataGridView:

     var asd1 = dataGridView1.Columns.Add("DrzavaAng", "DrzavaAng");
        var asd2 = dataGridView1.Columns.Add("Valuta", "Valuta");
        var asd3 = dataGridView1.Columns.Add("Oznaka", "Oznaka");
        var asd4 = dataGridView1.Columns.Add("Nomin", "Nomin");
        var asd5 = dataGridView1.Columns.Add("Sreden", "Sreden");
        for (var i = 0; i<xmlNodes.Count; i++)
            var node = xmlNodes[i];
            var states = new Class();
            states.Valuta = node["Valuta"].InnerText;
            states.Oznaka = node["Oznaka"].InnerText;
            states.Nomin = node["Nomin"].InnerText;
            states.Sreden = node["Sreden"].InnerText;
            states.DrzavaAng = node["DrzavaAng"].InnerText;
            //var asd = dataGridView1.Columns.Add("1", "1");
            _ = dataGridView1.Rows.Add();

    Here's the part where I pass the data from GridView to the FastReport "database".

    using (Report report = new Report())
                DataTable dt = new DataTable();
                foreach (DataGridViewColumn cl in dataGridView1.Columns)
                object[] clvl = new object[dataGridView1.Columns.Count];
                foreach (DataGridViewRow row in dataGridView1.Rows)
                    for (int i = 0; i<row.Cells.Count; i++)
                    { clvl[i] = row.Cells[i].Value; }
                DataSet ds = new DataSet();
                report.Dictionary.RegisterData(ds.Tables[0], "test", true);
                report.SetParameterValue("date", dateTimePicker1.Value.ToString("dd.MM.yyyy")); 

    My question is, how can I make it to fetch the data without the gridview, directly from webservice and load it into a FastReport -> PDF file?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
