14 버젼 업데이트


  • .NET Core and .NET Core 3 Support - ActiveReports now provides native support for .NET Core. It is now also possible to create applications targeting .NET Core 3, that run on Linux and MacOS in addition to Windows.
  • Download Assemblies From NuGet - GrapeCity have now published the assemblies on NuGet to make it easier for developers to get updates, service packs, and bug fixes. However, they will continue to provide installers for all major and minor releases.
  • AcroForms and PDF Export - AcroForms (Acrobat Forms) are PDF documents with interactive fields, such as textboxes and checkboxes, that can be used to create PDF forms. To create these forms in ActiveReports 14, you will can the new InputField control and set its InputType property to either ‘Text’ or ‘CheckBox.’ You also have the ability to make this a ‘Required’ field, enable spellchecking, or mask user-entered content with asterisks (*) using the ‘Password’ boolean property.
  • Web Designer Enhancements - This release makes several improvements to the Web Designer.
  • Data Source and Data Set Creation - This release adds backend logic to the web designer so your end users can create their own data source connections and data sets (in the same intuitive design as before) and validate them.
  • BandedList Control - Added support for BandedList control in the Web Designer. The BandedList control functions like a banded report, or section report, with iterative header, detail, and footer sections. This means you can now use your existing *.rpx reports with the Web Designer. To use your existing .rpx reports (section reports) in the web designer, you can convert them using the Import Wizard. This will recreate your section report as RDLX and place its content in the BandedList control.
  • Localization - Custom localization is included in ActiveReports 14. If you need to localize the Web Designer, you can do so by passing a resource file containing your translations.
  • New ‘WebViewer’ Control - ActiveReports 14 includes a new report viewer control for the web. This is based on JavaScript technology and can be used in ASP. NET or ASP. NET Core. The WebViewer can be used with multiple view types: HTML, PDF, or Raw HTML. It supports all report types and export formats. This viewer brings you more functional benefits than the previous ASP. NET Viewer control such as support for themes, integrated text search functionality, and is responsive.
  • New Stand-Alone Report Designer - ActiveReports 14 recreates the report designer desktop application to give a more modern and familiar look. This new designer has the same intuitive functionality as the other designers, but in a lightweight desktop application. This way your report designers (who may not be developers) are not tied to working in Visual Studio.
  • JavaScript Report Viewer Improvements - ActiveReports 14 improves the JSViewer in several ways. First, it's added a text search functionality that scans your reports and returns matches and page numbers. Secondly, localization is now supported. You can localize the JSViewer to a certain culture or locale. It's also added one-touch printing. Now, you can print the report at the same time the report is loaded into the JSViewer. Or, you might only want to print without displaying the report.
