Save yourself the trouble of having to reload printer trays in the middle of printing — or from wasting special types of paper — by printing a report from multiple printer trays. In this blog, we'll go over how to print from multiple trays using an example based on a support question we received.
Line and area charts are simple yet powerful ways to represent trends in data, but they’re not the best fit for data that changes at irregular intervals with constant data segments between those changes. This is where Step charts — a chart type in which data points connect in a step-like progression — come into play. With the addition of three new chart types in ComponentOne’s 2017 v3 release of FlexChart, you can now better visualize this kind of data with FlexChart.
Most .NET developers discover with their first Xamarin.Forms solution that these apps are much more complicated than what they’ve experienced under the other XAML platforms. The solutions contain multiple projects, involve a variety of NuGet packages, and require interacting with native Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android projects.

While I was at DevIntersection 2017 this last week, I got into many wonderful and thoughtful conversations about ActiveReports and the business cases that existing customers use it for and what prospects are considering it for. The business requirements varied drastically from healthcare-targeted products with end users as nurses to manufacturing and the food industry. Each conversation was unique but similar at the same time. Unique in the sense that the business requirements were very different and the type and amount of data that was managed by the reports was quite varied. However, there was a fundamental undertone of the two ecosystems of reporting that seem to be trending.
