Declaration:function ReadFromXMLString(InString: string; DataID: string): boolean;

The function ReadFromXMLString reads the data from the string InString (always starting with the first character of the string). If the parameter DataID is empty, the first <replist> tag is evaluated and read into the report listview. If DataID is not empty, the entire rest of the string is read until a <replist> tag is found whose attribute "id " matches DataID (the recognition of the "id " attribute is not case-sensitive). The property DataID is set to the identification string of the XML data source. The function ReadFromXMLString returns TRUE if both a valid starting tag <replist> and a valid end tag </replist> has been found and the report listview has been updated. In this case the OnChange event is triggered.

Hint 1: The XML description of the listview data has to follow a certain order: number of columns and rows have to precede all other data of the control.
