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.

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.
