KD Reports Logo


KD Reports is a Qt tool that lets you easily create printable reports by providing all of the necessary features for a variety of applications. Reports can be created programmatically, using an easy to use C++ API, or they can be data-driven, creating reports from XML or SQL data sources complete with watermarks, headers and footers. Reports can be previewed manually, sent directly to a printer, or saved as PDF files.

Additionally, using KDAB's KD Chart (http://www.kdab.com/products/kd-chart) package together with KD Reports allows reports to be garnished with the myriad of chart types supported by KD Chart.

KD Reports targets C++ programmers who use Qt in their applications.
