Theme support in reporting controls allows you to customize the visual appearance of your reports without directly modifying individual elements. It works by applying pre-defined themes or creating custom ones, affecting aspects like fonts, colors, backgrounds, and layout. This simplifies report design, ensures brand consistency, and improves accessibility by adhering to user interface guidelines. Theme support is particularly valuable for generating multiple reports with a cohesive look and feel, catering to different audiences, or complying with specific accessibility standards.

Several WinForms reporting controls offer theme support including:

  • DevExpress Reports (Multi-Platform) (part of DevExpress Reporting) allows you to design cross-platform reports with pre-built themes and custom options for seamless branding.
  • ActiveReports.NET by MESCIUS leverages rich theming features and inheritance to create consistent, branded reports across different outputs.
  • Telerik Reporting lets you apply pre-defined or custom themes to ensure visual consistency and accessibility compliance in your reports.
  • Stimulsoft Reports.Net enables you to create visually unified reports with built-in themes and the ability to define custom themes for specific needs.

選擇支援 JSON 格式的報表元件可為適應性報表提供互通性和動態資料處理。


JSON support lets reporting tools directly use data in the human-readable JavaScript Object Notation format, unlocking flexibility, ease-of-use, and real-time insights.

Additionally, JSON seamlessly handles dynamic data, enabling real-time reporting for ever-changing insights.

Several ASP.NET Core reporting controls offer the ability to connect to JSON data sources including:

  • DevExpress Reports (Multi-Platform) (part of DevExpress Reporting) is a rich reporting solution that supports information from any data source, including JSON.
  • ActiveReports.NET by MESCIUS offers JSON data connectivity for .NET 8 applications, featuring a user-friendly report designer and flexible report components.

Report drill down functionality allows users to explore deeper into summary data and discover detailed information. For a report showing sales by product category, visitors could click on a category to view a breakdown of individual products, and then drill down even further, by brand or model. This interactive capability promotes a greater understanding and discovery of trends within the report. The intuitive data navigation allows users to peel back layers of data to uncover trends, anomalies, and patterns that may not be obvious in summarized representations. Drilling down into data helps consumers make better decisions by giving them the precise insights they need to back up their conclusions.

Several .NET 8 WinForms Reporting components support drill down functionality, including:

  • DevExpress Reports lets you zoom in on data summaries for granular insights. Drill down from regional sales to city-level performance, then explore specific products.
  • List and Label Enterprise Reporting Edition by combit empowers you to navigate summarized data and gain deeper understanding. Explore sales by product category, then drill down to individual products and identify top sellers.
  • Telerik Reporting facilitates interactive exploration of summarized data. Visualize sales by country, then drill down to analyze regional trends and identify top-performing locations.
