What's New in ActiveReports 12

What's new in ActiveReports 12, Service Pack 2

Series line added to stacked bar charts

Tablix control has been enhanced for rendering performance.

By customer request, we've improved joins in the Visual Query Designer. When joining tables that contain one or more fields with the same name (for instance, OrderID in the Orders and OrderDetails tables), Visual Query Designer now creates unique names for each of these fields.

A new report sample demonstrating how to implement datset joins, called Flight On-Time Performance, is now available in the Documents\GrapeCity Samples\ActiveReports 12 directory.

Add and customize series lines in column and bar charts. Properties include Style, Width, and Color.

Change the text orientation in chart axis points with Text Orientation property. Options include Auto, Angle, Horizontal, Rotated90, Rotated270, and Stacked.

CrossSectionBox now includes a CloseBorder property, so you can now choose to close the border of the control if your report spans across multiple pages.

Now you can display geospatial data directly on the Map with new function =MapPoint(<Latitude>,<Longitude>). This function is available for a map Point Layer only.

Combine unlimited related datasets from different data sources with the Dataset Joins feature8 Enable report authors to combine related datasets from different data sources--all in the same report! If you have data from a CRM, SCM, and ERP, you can use Dataset Joins to join them in nested Tables, Tablix and other data regions in ActiveReports 12 using expressions.

CSV export and JSON export are now supported.

Page reports now support subreports: Subreports, which have always been available in section and RDL reports, are now available in fixed page layout reports.
