Posted 11 May 2021, 3:11 am ESTWhat is going on with providing source code for the updated WPF Designer?
You have updated your Standalone Designer (GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Designer.exe), but still haven't released the source code for that in your Samples as you did with previous WinForms versions.
Your designer sample code is very important to my company. We rely heavily on the WinForms designer that you provided, and as we've transitioned to WPF we really need your sample code for the WPF designer.
I had previously expressed this to the salesmen about 18 months ago, who he reached out to the project manager and relayed to me the reason for not releasing these components was due to the C1 controls. He suggested I used the web designer. But our software doesn't delve into web components -- we're strictly a desktop application.
We've been using ActiveReports for 20+ years, since v1 for COM (moved to a pro licenses shortly after for v2 for COM). Please don't leave us hanging like this.
We'll happily license those C1 controls to save time designing a whole new WPF-based designer. Since the ComponentOne stuff is all available by Nuget, please just release the source for the WPF designer and let the customers decide if they want to license the ComponentOne stuff, or replace the C1 components. As long as you're up-front about it, I'd imagine nobody would get upset.
