Also, in the version 2018.3, we added the powerful, flexible and easily customizable data analysis tool for ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, .NET Core platforms. The server side performs all the necessary actions for transforming, analyzing, grouping, filtering, sorting data, using .NET 4.0 or higher. The client side receives the finished result from the server and represents it in the form of interactive HTML5 elements on the viewer page. The dashboards are created in the HTML5 report designer, and they are displayed in the HTML5 viewer. When editing dashboards, HTML5 designer requests only the necessary information on the server side, which allows you to optimize editing of dashboards and speed up the work with its elements.
