In our last blog, we saw how ActiveReports9 Server was successful in impressing the Store Manager and the IT Personnel. Hence they decided to consider the product for their next level of POC and see if it meets met their higher level requirements.
We already have had blogs discussing about how to use ActiveReports in HTML5 Viewer. Also does the documentation shows how you can customize, localize and deploy HTML5 viewer.
Adding yet another feather in the crown of the ActiveReports family, we have for you ActiveReports 9 with more features, better functionality and an all new user experience.
UI is one of the most important parts of Report-Designing. Not only does one need to ensure the report's flawless readability with easy comprehension, but that is has a suitable and attractive UI too.
Someone has rightly said: The world is dynamic, we have to change all the time.
ActiveReports has been the first choice of developers when it comes to creating hassle free and versatile reports. The extensive API of ActiveReports allows Visual Basic and C# developers to completely control the report processing engine to fit their needs.
After the release of Tiled-Windows8, the new tile-based user interface (UI) is the most 'in-thing' these days. Who would not prefer to provide quick navigation and better UI to their application.
The advent of ActiveReports7 provided us two different reporting formats in just one ReportingTool. This not only provides more options of reporting but also a better value for money.
C1TextBox is the main data bound control used for entering and editing information in a text form. It not only supports data formatting for all data types, including special features for date-time formats but also supports edit mask, data validation and other features.
C1Report is a banded report in which each Section is rendered horizontally (from left to right) one below the other. One of the most important section of the report is PageHeader that is rendered on each page of the report and run along the top of each page, horizontally.
Groups are created in any report to organize and summarize the data in a particular order. Grouping allows you to visually separate groups of records and hence enhance the readability of the report.
C1MultiDocument component allows creating, persisting, and exporting large documents that cannot be handled by a single C1PrintDocument object due to memory limitations. This was added in C1Reports in 2011v2 release.
In our last blog, we discussed how to customize the PageFooter in C1Reports. As the title suggests, lets discuss the approach to customize the PageFooter in Continuous Page Layout (CPL) in ActiveReports.
