We will add the ability to export a report to PDF and embed other files in this document. This may be different files. For example, data files such as XML or CSV and others. In particular, Excel files can also be embedded. Embedding files in a PDF document provides an opportunity to use modern standards when exporting reports.
Our team has made complete refactoring of components WebViewer, MobileViewer, and MvcViewer. As a result, we have completely updated the component to view reports - WebViewer. Now, this component is a universal full-featured tool for viewing reports. At the same time, the WebViewer component has a number of advantages over the older versions. Increased speed of report processing and improved with cache, optimized work with large reports (big reports). WebViewer is developed using HTML5 and CSS3 technologies and supported in any browser. Also, this component is adapted for mobile devices.
In the release of 2016.2, the reporting tool can request only the data needed for the report. To do this, you should change only one value of the Retrieve Only Used Data property to true, and then when rendering the report, data sources will be filled with the data that are used in the report. This feature will be described in the updated documentation.
