Stimulsoft reports has a web based report designer component that provides full report editing capabilities inside a web browser. Thanks to this component called Designer.Web you can now allow end users to edit reports to their requirements and save the report definition locally or on the server. The best part of the Designer.Web is drag and drop deployment, all you need to do is insert the designer component on an ASP.NET web form and write one line of code to start allowing users to edit existing report or create their own reports. This feature would be extremely useful for minor changes that would normally require developer intervention such as changing color, font or alignment of text or adding a new field to the table or changing the location of the page number.

The salient features of Stimulsoft Reports Designer.Web are:

1. Platform independent (runs on Adobe Flash);
2. Drag and drop implementation and deployment;
3. Option of saving report definition on the web server or on user's computer;
4. Extremely useful for minor changes and updates by end users;
5. Extremely useful for global development teams.
