Until now, the reporting tool Stimulsoft Reports.PHP was based on the Flash technology. Appropriately, it had all the advantages of this technology and disadvantages as well. One of the most significant limitations was the need to install the Flash Player and there was no ability to use the product in many mobile devices such as tablets, phones, etc.

In the release 2015.3 of Stimulsoft Reports.PHP in addition to the Fx Report Engine, which is based on the Flash technology, we added JavaScript Report Engine, which is completely designed using the JavaScript language. Now Stimulsoft Reports.PHP contains the HTML5 viewer and designer and is not limited in Flash technology.
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.
