This is the new data visualization tool in the release 2015.3. Everybody knows that information is perceived better and easier if it is visualized. Using the map component, it is possible to visualize geographical data. For example, any geographical area can be painted in a specific color and are grouped according to a certain condition. Also the Map component supports tooltips that display the name of the geographical area and can also show the value.

Map Component in Reports.Wpf

Using maps in reports as a separate element as well as connected with other elements provides the ability to create reports easier in perception.
In earlier versions, the text format could be defined using local settings, i.e., the text is formatted according to the current settings of the operating system or by defining each parameter manually for the format mask. And in fact, in both cases, there were certain inconveniences. For example, when using local settings, for changing them, it should be necessary to edit formats in the operating system. In other case, if it is needed to change one parameter, it should be necessary to adjust others as well. After a deep analysis of the situation, taking into account the wishes of our users, we have added the ability to change settings selectively using local settings.

New Abilities in Text Formatting

As can be seen from the image, local format settings are used. The values of Positive Pattern and Currency Symbol parameters are changed.

Parameters are used when creating a query for getting data. Previously, in order to use the variable from the report dictionary as a parameter in the request, you needed to create a variable first. Then, when editing the data source to create a setting in the data source you needed to specify the variable as the value of this parameter and to register this parameter in the text query.

From the 2015.3 release, we have made use of variables in queries easier. When you create a variable, you should set the flag Allow using as SQL parameter.

Variable as Parameter in Query

Next, when editing the data source, you should register the name of the variable in the query, using a special character "@" at the beginning of the name.

Variable as Parameter in Query

Then click OK. And the variable will present in the data source and is used as a parameter in the query.
