ActiveReports 7 takes your reports to new levels with a release that fulfills a wide range of reporting needs. It introduces a new page layout designer that offers precise design tools for the most complex form reports such as tax forms, insurance forms, multi-page prospectus and investment forms, and much more. Updated Barcode, Matrix, Calendar, and Table controls plus data visualization features make the most complicated transactional, analytical, and BI reports easy to create, and easy to read and understand. All of these features are within reach in a set of redesigned viewer and designer controls that have a consistent look and feel, and a powerful, extensive API that continues the hardcore coding traditions of the ActiveReports product line.
New Page reports offer advanced data regions to make it easy to create different kinds of reports. Charts, tables, crosstabs, and more can be freely mixed within the same report, eliminating the need to use subreports in most instances! Create highly structured reports using the new FPL reporting engine. Reports using this model won't go changing your layout, and the advanced data overflow capabilities allow you to easily design WYSIWYG reports.
Take advantage of various data regions to let them format the data fed into them in their own ways. Tables can use multiple groups and grow as needed, while crosstabs can group data along rows and columns. As data regions grow, other report controls respond dynamically, moving as needed.
The new Ajax-based WebViewer control no longer relies on ASP.NET postbacks to do its work. It has also been updated with a new API and report parameter support, so you no longer need to write the code to handle parameter input yourself!
Scale pages, add page watermarks, print multiple report pages on a single sheet (N-up)!
All viewer controls can now prompt the user for parameter values. When using page reports, these parameters can also offer sophisticated data entry options such as a data-bound list of values to choose from and cascading parameters where one parameter value filters the list of available values for the next parameter.
Once you've entered a retail license key, your system remains licensed until you manually deactivate that license, making it easier to upgrade to maintenance releases.
