Stimulsoft Reports.Web has two fully-featured report designers, which work directly in the Web-browser. Both report designers are made as ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC components. These components work by the client-server technology. On the ASP.NET side, the component located at the web page works as a server. On the client side, works a HTML5 module of the report designer. Both report designers use the Ribbon interface; include many tools for working with reports. The designers are compact. That allows them to be loaded very quick in the web browser. The HTML5 version is especially designed for creating reports, both on mobile devices and personal computers.

It is the best what our company can offer. It should be noted that all reports in all our products have the same format. So, reports created in the report designer will work in all the other components from Stimulsoft.

What can we say about our report engine?
When designing Stimulsoft Reports.Net started we tried to make the report engine maximally powerful and flexible. But real power and flexibility our report engine has acquired after we started receive and realize requests, suggestions and criticisms of our customers. Thanks to our customers the report generator has powerful and rich functionality. For report creation plenty of components such as simple text components and compound special components (Chart, Cross-Tab, Container and others) are available. Using Stimulsoft Reports.Net, many difficult in realization earlier tasks are getting available and understandable.

What about the report designer?
We think that it is very important for the report designer to be quick and handy, because time amount spent for the report creation depends on it. That is why we make it more user-friendly. In our report designer, whole report is visually separated into pages in the report template. This allows you to see how elements will be placed on a page of a report. Our designer fully supports drag and drop. Full support of this technology allows you to speed up report creation. We have added plenty of wizards and editors to make changes of properties as easy as possible. Besides, in cooperation with our partners, we have fully translated the designer interface into 26 languages. This makes our customers' work easier. Also, to make the clients' work faster, special commands to create reports are available. We do not stop on what we reached and keep on making our report editor to be perfect!

How does our report engine work with data?
Any report requires data for its work. What does the Stimulsoft Reports.Net offer for you? Our report engine supports all types of ADO.NET. Do you need to get data directly from data server? We support more than 15 types of data servers: MS SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, Firebird etc. Do you store data in XML? Report engine can get data from XML files too. Do you need to use business objects? Stimulsoft Reports.Net can help you. You can use them as well as other data sources. There is no need for you to rack your brains over the question: how to prepare data for report rendering. Stimulsoft Reports.Net will do this work for you. Sorting, grouping, filtration, joining - all these actions can be done with your data before report rendering.

What we prepare for work with reports?
Work with ready reports is no less important than preparing a template for this report. We maximally improved this part of our product. You can view the report both in Win Forms and in Web Forms. Do you want to save rendered report into other format? It is also not a problem. Stimulsoft Reports.Net can save rendered reports into more than 30 file formats. Besides, you can save reports into the special internal format for viewing. Also our report generator offers you unique mode of editing of a rendered report directly in the Preview Window. If mode is not enough, you may use full power of the report designer. We had hard work to supply opportune navigation over a report. Hyperlinks, bookmarks, and thumbnails are available for you.

We are pleased to announce the release of the new version Stimulsoft Reports 2019.2 which is now available for download. This release comes with the number of changes and updates which include the new product Dashboards.JS, a powerful, flexible data analysis tool for the jаvascript platform; our reporting tools now have Pareto chart, text in cells for jаvascript; dashboards are updated with the interaction functionality, Top N values and many more.

New product Dashboards.JS
We are glad to present a powerful, flexible and easily customizable data analysis and processing tool for the jаvascript platform. All that is needed is a jаvascript and HTML5 browser. Installing additional .NET, Java or Flash components is not required. Therefore, Dashboards.JS will work on most devices (from desktop computers to mobile devices). Dashboards.JS can work as a client-side solution, which means that there is no server side is required, as well as a server-side, can be used on the server side. The tool is perfectly compatible with Node.js. At the same time, the functionality of Dashboards.JS is no less than in other Stimulsoft products.

Pareto Chart
In the release 2019.2, when designing reports and dashboards, you will have the ability to create Pareto charts. This type of chart contains both bars and a line graph, where individual values are represented in descending order by bars, and the cumulative total is represented by the line.

Top N Values
In the new version, Chart, Indicator, Progress, Pivot elements for dashboards can display the top values. To do this, select an item in the dashboard panel, click the Browse button of the Top N property on the Property panel in the report designer. In the dialog, specify the number of top values and the mode above (top values) or below (low values). Also, other values that are not included in the list of top values can be summed up and displayed as a separate element as a chart, progress or indicator.

Disabling columns in Table
Starting with the release 2019.2, you can disable displaying the column in the Table element of dashboards. In order to apply this, select the data field in the element editor and uncheck the Visible option.

Hyperlinks in values of a table
In the new version, you can set hyperlinks, if the field type is defined as a Dimension, for data field values. To do this, select the data field in the Table element editor, select the Hyperlink checkbox and specify the address. Now in the report viewer, when you click on any value of this data field, you will be taken to the specified hyperlink. Each data field can specify its own hyperlink.

We have added the ability to customize interactive actions when viewing the dashboard. Depending on specific user actions, a hint can be displayed, data filtering is applied, and transition by a hyperlink. Interactively actions can be defined for items such as the Chart, Regional Map, and Table. The setting of interactive actions is carried out in the interaction editor. For a chart and a map, you can open this editor by selecting the element and clicking the Browse button on the Interaction property on the Property panel. For the Table element, you can disable sorting and filtering in the Table headers in this editor. To configure the interactive actions of the data fields of the Table element, you should click the Edit button in the editor of this element.

Abbreviations in formatting
Starting with release 2019.2, you can use abbreviated numbers with numeric and currency formatting in reports or dashboards. For example, for thousands of values you may use the abbreviation K, for millionths - M, for billionths - B. To enable the use of abbreviations of values, set the checkbox next to Use Abbreviation in the format editor.

Negative red
In this version, you can highlight in red all negative numbers with numeric, currency, and percentage formatting. This functionality will work for both reports and dashboards. To do this, set the checkbox next to Negative in Red in the format editor. Now all numbers that are less than zero will be marked in red (see the picture below).

Export to JSON
Starting with the release 2019.2, we have added exporting a report to such a data format as JSON. To convert the report, click Save in the report viewer, select the item Data File... and select the JSON as the file type. You can export a whole report or only data or data with header and footers.

Exporting tables to Data
For the Table element of the dashboard, you now can export data of various types to files. To do this, when viewing the dashboard, click the Save button on the Table element and select the Data item. In the export settings menu, choose the type of data file (CSV, DBF, XML, JSON, DIF, SYLK) to which the contents of the Table element should be converted.

Export settings
In the version 2019.2, we have added the export settings when exporting dashboards or their elements to various formats. With these settings, you can change the page size, orientation, image quality, image type, scale. Export settings are displayed to the user in a pop-up dialog, after selecting the export command and before starting the process of converting dashboards or their elements.

Editing the rendered dashboard
We have added the Edit button in the dashboard preview. This button calls the report designer and opens the rendered dashboard in it. In the report designer, you can edit that dashboard and save the changes. You will these changes in the viewer. The editing mode of the rendered dashboard is possible only if you set the Calculation Mode property to Interpretation before the rendering.

Calculation of totals by condition
In the release of 2019.2, it became possible to use the functions of calculating totals with the condition in the elements of dashboards. The SumIf(,) function is used to sum the data field values by a condition, and the CountIf(,) function is used to count the number of values in a data field by a condition. The first argument in these functions is the data field, and the second is the condition for fetching values.

Text in cells in Reports.JS
A new component Text in Cells has been added to Reports.JS. Now you can use this component for designing reports. In order to add this component, select Text in cells on the toolbox or in the Insert tab, in the Components group and put it on the report page.
