The Device class in ReportBuilder provides an open, extensible architecture for translating report page objects into a more useable format. ReportBuilder includes the following built-in devices: ScreenDevice, PrinterDevice, TextFileDevice, ReportTextFileDevice, and ArchiveDevice. The first three are used for previewing, printing and exporting data to text files. The ArchiveDevice streams page objects to an archive file (.raf). An ArchiveReader component is used to read the page objects and pass them to the devices listed above. This enables you to preview or print a report without rerunning it.
