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.
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.
Framework Versions on Publish
In the Publish wizard, you may select the type and version of the framework for ASP.NET MVC, WinForms, and WPF platforms. .NET Framework 4.5.2
, .NET Core 3.1
, .NET 5.0
frameworks are available. This will reduce the time it takes to integrate Stimulsoft components into your application.
We are launching a new product - Dashboards.PHP
We added the Scheduler
tool to automate the reporting process in Stimulsoft Designer
. With this tool, you can convert the report and dashboard into a finished document and send them by email according to a specific schedule. Hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly schedulers are available with many options for flexible scheduling.
Manual data entry
For dashboard elements such as Chart
, 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.
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.
New element editor in a variable
We improved the element editor in a variable. Now the input fields for elements are presented as a dimensionless grid in the cells of which you can specify both simple values and expressions.
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.
Windows 11 support
Before releasing the new version of the Windows 11
operating system, we are glad to inform you that our tool is completely ready for the latest OS version. In addition, we have added a Windows 11 GUI theme to the WPF report designer.
Text in shapes
We added the ability to specify text inside shapes. This feature is available for most shapes - a text entry field located in the editor of the Shape
