Description


Interfaces with Office documents are needed whatever application is built with Uniface. While PDF files could be generated (also if not directly from Uniface) sometimes the source of a REAL document is needed from Uniface; the most manageable file format used/usable in other tools is RTF; it is preferrable to DOC/DOCX because it is documented and it is text only. A generally available P_RTF device table integrated with Uniface printing modes and printing fonts could solve this issue.

Use Case


Without this functionality related reports can only be developed with a tool external to Uniface.
