We are pleased to announce the release of the new version Stimulsoft Reports and Stimulsoft Dashboards 2021.4, which is now available for download. In this version, we released the new product Dashboards.PHP, integrated Blockly in the Event editor, added the scheduler functionality in the desktop Designer, added the ability to fill data manually to design analytical panels, and many other features and improvements.

Blockly

We integrated the Blockly library to create event scripts in reports. With this tool, you can create various scripts visually without writing any code. The event script created with Blockly will be universal for all report writers. Accordingly, your report will work both in the WinForms report designer and in the JS report designer. The list of supported report component events may vary.

Manual data entry

For dashboard elements such as Chart, Indicator, Progress, Gauge, we added the functionality to enter data manually. You may switch to manual input mode in the editors of these elements. Value entry fields are cells that are linked line by line. The number of rows is unlimited, and in cells, in addition to values, you can also specify expressions.

Exceed margins

We added the functionality for the Text Box component to fill the page space outside the print margins with the background color of this component. The Exceed Margins property is used for this. Depending on the selected direction, the background color of the text component will fill the page space beyond the print margins, up to the page margins.

Cloning in a dictionary

We simplified the ability to clone items in the data dictionary. Using the Duplicate command on the context menu, you can quickly clone data sources, connections, variables, and other data dictionary elements.
