New FastReport .Net

June 1, 2016

  The new FastReport version - 2016.3  has additional report objects – PolyLineObject - broken curve, PolygonObject – closed polygon with filling. The user also can edit the already prepared objects PolyLineObject/PolygonObject through moving, adding or removing the anchor point

 Report page received 2 new properties: Page.UnlimitedPaperHeight and Page.UnlimitedPaperWidth. They enable “infinite page” mode, when the report page’s size adjusts to objects position. This feature will be helpful for reports with tables with growing width and matrix without bringing them forward. It will also come in handy when creating a column report with further exporting in Excel – all the data will be placed on one page without breaking it with page headline and foot bands. Besides, it will be useful for Web reports, when there’s no need to stick with certain page size.

  Added new PDF export property – ShowPrintDialog. It helps creating a PDF document that displays print dialog in a PDF viewer (for example, Adobe Acrobat) right after opening. It’s useful when printing PDF in online reports

  PDF files can be created without font embedding – the entire text can be built in curves. This capability is activated by PDFExport.TextInCurves property. Building text in curves increases size of the resulting files, but it can be useful when you need to create invariable document without ability to copy the text and without reference to the installed fonts. As well as when creating PDF files for printing industry.

  By popular demand we rearranged mechanism of creating the dash dot line in PDF file. It was necessary for getting around the printing error when printing such lines from the Chrome browser’s internal viewer – dash dot lines were displayed correctly but were not printed.

  Added new export to JSON format for data exchange of the built report. For data consolidation it's better to use the “infinite page” mode.
