Customize Chart Data Points with Conditional Formatting and Custom Symbols

One of the most common chart requirements is to customize the appearance of the data points—the individual values that are plotted on the chart. The representation of data points (known as symbols) varies depending upon the chart type being used, so customizing a data point in a Column/Bar chart would imply customizing the appearance of the columns/bars. Similarly, customizing a data point in LineSymbols/SplineSymbols/Scatter chart implies customizing the appearance of circular/square shaped symbols at that particular point.

ActiveReports: Solving problems since 1998

I recently hosted a webcast titled "ActiveReports: Solving problems since 1998!" The idea behind this was to showcase some of the features that our current customers have found most useful. I can tell you all the great things about ActiveReports, but it's better to show you the features that our customers have said solve their problems on a daily basis. And that's exactly what we did! We had two amazing sessions with an awesome group in the audience. Throughout the presentation, my co-organizer, Bhupesh Malhotra, was typing away answering the many questions we were getting, which shows that the content was being well received. We had great participation, great questions, and great feedback. Utilizing live polls, we gathered that the audience members were mostly developers and the majority of them had been long-time users of ActiveReports. So we tailored the presentation to suit them. For those who were new to ActiveReports, or to GrapeCity as the producer of ActiveReports, we started off with a brief introduction to what ActiveReports is, what the main features are, and why our customers choose us over our competitors. One such example I mentioned in the webcast was a customer I had spoken with the previous week. His company was worried about the stability of the product and of GrapeCity. I mentioned that GrapeCity has been in business for over 30 years. ActiveReports has been around for the last 20 years. Over those many years, we have come to know and understand reporting and the industry very well. We have an amazing global team of support agents, developers, and managers that stand behind the product. We are dedicated to our customers and their reporting needs. You can't ask for a more stable company or a more stable product! After the introductory slides, we quickly jumped into the demos. From a long list of features , I chose to showcase a few of the more popular ones:

.NET Native and UWP Edition

.NET Native is a precompilation technology for building and deploying UWP applications. It is available in Visual Studio 2015, and it's also a part of app store submission process.

UWP Licensing
