In the final release of 2020, users will find several new features that make ActiveReportsJS v2.0 the ultimate reporting solution for modern web applications.

Pittsburgh, PA – December 4th, 2020 GrapeCity, a global provider of award-winning enterprise software development tools, is pleased to announce ActiveReportsJS v2.0. In the final release of 2020, users will discover several new features that make ActiveReportsJS the ultimate reporting solution for modern web applications. ActiveReportsJS v2.0 upgrades JavaScript developers' design toolkit for intuitive and dynamic reports.

With personalized user experiences on the rise, allowing non-technical users to adjust existing reports on the fly or build new ones from pre-defined templates is essential for a reporting solution. ActiveReportsJS v2.0 addresses this need by introducing the Report Designer Component, which integrates into a wide variety of front-end applications. The masterfully crafted Report Designer Component API ensures endless customization capabilities. The designer supports any report storage. JavaScript developers can choose how to preview reports from a handful of methods – starting from the built-in report viewer component and ending with a custom PDF reader. To learn more about the Report Designer Component, visit the release blog.

ActiveReportsJS v2.0 revised data binding capabilities to connect a report to the data source of the users' choice. The new data binding interface allows developers to connect to REST API, GraphQL, and OData endpoints and supply various requests' parameters. Report designers can set these parameters to runtime values to design the data binding, depending on the environment variables, such as the currently logged-in users. They can also use the manual data binding features by fetching the data in their application's code and feeding them to a report. To learn more about enhanced data binding, read the release blog.
