Render, print and export your UI. XtraPrinting Library helps you render, print or export the contents of advanced DevExpress presentation controls and address the reporting/information sharing needs of your end-users without manually creating a single report. The DevExpress Printing System takes the controls you use within an application and renders their contents using a simple method call. So when users sort, group and filter the contents of a grid, manipulate the dimensions of a pivot table, or add an event to their daily schedule, a report is a single line of code away from output. And it's not just available in printed form, a full set of data export options (PDF, XLS, HTML, etc) is built-in.

What's new in XtraPriting 13.1?

  • New Control Designer UI: Design-time customization dialogs for our WinForms Controls have been re-designed for improved usability and a more consistent user experience.
  • Contextual Smart Tags: WinForms Navigation Controls (including the Ribbon, Toolbars, NavBar) now display Smart Tags for their individual elements. This allows a customer to customize the control's layout and main settings with a few simple clicks, without using the Property Grid. We've also reviewed and extended our Smart Tags based on the usage experience of the controls.

New WinForms Data Source Wizard:
Available via a Smart Tag or the clickable label on any DevExpress data-aware control, this wizard helps you set up your Data Source in three easy steps. In the first step, the Wizard lists all data sources found in the solution, categorized by the data access technologies. If needed, you can select a data access technology and create a new data source. Once the data source has been selected or created, you choose a data binding mode from a list (all list items have short descriptions and links to our online documentation). Finally, the third step allows you to customize Control and Data Source specific settings. After you click Finish, the wizard adds a data source component to the form, binds the control and generates all necessary code.

Visual Studio Template Gallery
Prior to 13.1, DevExpress offered numerous Project/Item Templates that were created over many release cycles. These templates could be found in various locations within Visual Studio. This release includes a fully consolidated DevExpress Template Gallery - the entry point for all Project/Item Templates. The Template Gallery provides a unified way to use DevExpress templates, features powerful filtering and searching mechanisms and contains sample images and descriptions for each template, thus simplifying the way in which selections are made for individual projects. 13.1 also includes improvements to shipping templates and offers additional template options.

FormAssistant component: This helper component is designed for first time users. When placed on the application form, it allows you to:

  • Convert between various form types (Form, XtraForm, RibbonForm)
  • Select a skin
  • Automatically initialize a skin engine to enable form skinning
  • Add the BonusSkins library to the project's References section
  • Specify basic form settings

User Interface Based Reporting
The Xtra Printing Library provides built-in support for the following DevExpress WinForms Controls:

  • Xtra Grid
  • Xtra Pivot Grid
  • Xtra Tree List
  • Xtra Vertical Grid
  • Xtra Scheduler
  • Xtra Charts
  • Xtra Layout
  • Xtra Gauges

It also ships with support for standard Microsoft controls like the Grid View, TreeView, ListView and RichEdit.

When used in conjunction with these presentation controls, the Xtra Printing Library will significantly reduce the number of banded reports you would otherwise be forced to create by simply rendering the contents of the presentation controls with a simple method call. Whether it's a list of contacts displayed within a Grid, sales related information within a PivotGrid, or financial trends within a chart, the UI you deliver can be rendered, printed or exported to multiple file formats with ease.

Print Your UI
To deliver the perfect end-user experience, the print preview capabilities of the Xtra Printing Library provide you countless customization options both at design and runtime. These include:

  • Built-in Preview Form and Preview Control
  • Page Navigation
  • Document Scaling and Zooming
  • Page Setup Dialog
  • Facing and Continuous Page Layout
  • Multiple Pages Layout
  • Watermark and Background Color
  • Customizable Margins in Preview
  • Headers & Footers
  • Ribbon or Standard Toolbars

Export Your UI
When a report is previewed, it can be optionally exported to one of the following formats:

  • File Formats: PDF, HTML, MHT, TXT, CSV, XLS, XLSX, RTF
  • Image formats: BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, EMF
  • The Print Preview has built-in functionality that allows you to send exported documents via Email with a single button click.
