After that, the assemblies and components of the selected Stimulsoft product will be added to the custom project. You can add the Reports.Java product to your project using the Maven extension, and Reports.JS using the NPM extension, if the application is developed on Node.JS.

Support for .NET Core in Reports.Web
.NET Core is a cross-platform development technology. Starting with the release 2017.1, we added components for creating, editing and viewing reports using this technology. Net Core components are represented by a full-featured HTML5 viewer and report designer.

The Anchor property in Reports.Net, Reports.Web, Reports.Wpf
When a report component is placed on another one, you can set the anchors of the component. For example, if you place a text component on the panel, by default, the binding on the top and left borders is enabled. In this case, when you resize the panel, the top and left margins between the borders of the panel and the text component will remain unchanged. Also, you can set anchors on the bottom and right borders or by all four borders of the component. If the anchors of the top component are enabled for all borders, then its size will be proportionally changed to the size of the component that lies under the top component.

Interactive charts in Reports.Web
Starting with the release 2017.1, when developing reports, you can use the drill-down of the data in charts. Drill-down can be organized from a chart to a chart, from a chart to other report components, from other report components to a chart. To enable data drill-down, call the chart editor, go to the Interaction tab and specify the drill-down settings. The drill-down options from the chart to another report component, including another chart, are transferred using the Tag property.

The sum by a group for the map component in Reports.Web Reports.Net, Reports.Wpf
If you use the Map component in a report, you can group data, for example, by countries or by continents. In this case, when the cursor hovers over the map element, its name, value, and the sum of all values by the group to which this element belongs will be displayed.

However, when using the style conditions, you can define the settings by which this style will be applied. A condition can be specified depending on the position, type, location, or name of the component to which this style will be applied. The number of conditions for the same style is unlimited.
