When developing the new version of Reports.Net we focused on improving interaction between a user and the reporting tool. New release comes with a few new components, designer and viewer interfaces improvements.

The Table component
This new component allows increasing speed of report building. It simplifies work with some controls. When using the Table, a user does not work with separate components placed in bands but with the structure of correlated cells. Size change, formatting, data filling - all this can be easily done using the Table component.

Super ToolTips
Super Tooltips provide much more information about controls. Now there is no need for you to guess where this or that control can be used. Detailed tips describe almost each button. Super ToolTips are available both in the designer and in the viewer. We believe this feature will be useful both for advanced users and for novices.

Context Tabs
Some components which are included into our product have very many properties. And it is very difficult to work with them. We have added the Context Tabs to simplify settings of those components. On the current moment Context Tabs are available for the Chart and the Table components.

Ribbon report viewer
The Ribbon UI in the report designer is used by our customers since the version 2008.2. But now we are glad to announce the Ribbon UI for the report viewer. New viewer is available both as a control and as a Tab in the Ribbon UI of the report designer.

Find previous function in the report viewer
There was lack of the find previous function in the report viewer for our users. Now this is problem is no longer present.

Save images in assemblies sources
There was an old problem in our reporting tool when it was impossible to include big images to the report body. Now such images will be automatically placed in the report assemblies sources. To disable this property you need to use the StoreImageInResources property. This property is added to a report and is available in the report designer.

Standalone reports
In previous versions of the reporting tool it was possible to create standalone reports from code. Now this function is available from the Save As command of the report designer menu. Please, notice that standalone reports will work only if Stimulsoft Reports.Net assemblies are installed in GAC.

Very complicated preliminary data processing is possible with the Cross-source. Cross-source is a cross table but the results of rendering are not shown in a report but used with other components (can be used with charts for example).


The following minor changes are available in this release:
  • New BarCodeType.ShowQuietZoneIndicator property is added to the BarCode component. This property is available for the following types of barcodes: EAN8/13, UPC-A/E, and Sup2/5.
  • The Informix database pack is added.
  • The Globalization module now supports Tag, ToolTip, and Hyperlink properties of the text component.
  • Now the export to Word2007 supports hyperlinks and bookmarks.
  • Some improvements in the database schema retrieving.

  • The PrintOn property of the ReportSummary Band is hidden.
  • Big optimization of work with memory.
