What's New in ActiveReports 11 Service Pack 2?

Usually, we save major new features for major version releases, and just fix issues and tweak things in service packs. But this time, we added a lot of features and enhancements to both ActiveReports Developer and ActiveReports Server. Plus we added a major feature to ActiveReports Server: a sleek new Web Designer. It is easy enough for newbies to use, but with all of the advanced features and RDL reports that developers and experienced report authors want. Read on to see what else we've included.

Happy 15th Birthday, .NET!

Silicon Valley Code Camp – 2016 .NET, JavaScript, Azure and more!

I attended the 11th anniversary of the Silicon Valley Code Camp this year on October 1st and 2nd in San Jose California. When I speak around the country and get into a discussion about community driven conferences like Code Camp’s, I encourage whomever I am talking to that they should attend this Code Camp just once, since it’s the largest in America (maybe the world) and is my favorite one.

Upgrade Old COM Reports to Version 11

If you use the COM version of ActiveReports and would like to migrate to the .NET platform and use ActiveReports 11, you are in the right place. You can pull all of your layouts in, leaving only the code to update manually. The process is, basically, save, load, update code.

Adding C1Themes to an existing WinForms application

In this post I will show how to add C1Themes support to an existing WinForms application. The application I will be using is the C1dView sample shipped with C1Reports. It is a C1Report/C1PrintDocument viewer application with a C1Ribbon-based UI. As shipped, it does not include themes. The few simple steps described below add the ability for the end user to select and apply one of the predefined themes included in the C1Themes product, to the C1dView app. (Note: to follow those steps, you must have C1Reports, C1Command, C1Ribbon and C1Themes products - all part of the ComponentOne Studio for WinForms - installed on your system; I will be using C# but the same can easily be done in VB.)
