How to print the current user as Prepared By in your DevExpress report?

Most report requires a Prepared By notation at the Page Footer to signify who prepared the report.  Furthermore, the Prepared By notation requires the current user to be the default value.  To do this you need to follow the step below:

1. Add a public property in the application class, a class use to contain global variables used by the client.

Please refer to this blog for detailed information on client global variables.

2. Modify your report to add a parameter.


3. Upon opening of the report, modify the model parameters to include the PreparedBy parameter you’ve just created in step number 2, then equate this parameter to the public property of the application class.


Thats it.
