FastReport .NET is a band-oriented report generator. There are 13 types of bands available: Report Title, Report Summary, Page Header, Page Footer, Column Header, Column Footer, Data Header, Data, Data Footer, Group Header, Group Footer, Child and Overlay. In addition, sub-reports are fully supported. A wide range of band types allows you to create any kind of report: list, master-detail, group, multi-column, master-detail-detail and many more.
Wide range of report objects available: text, picture, line, shape, barcode, matrix, table, rich text, checkbox and chart.
Reports can consist of several design pages, so allowing reports to contain a cover, the data and a back cover, all in one file.
The Table object allows you to build a tabular report with variable number of rows and/or columns, just like in MS Excel. Aggregate functions are also available.
Powerful, fully configurable Matrix object that can be used to print pivot tables.
Chart object that uses Microsoft Chart for .NET (based on Dundas charts). More than 30 series types, 3D support, powerful data processing features and much more.
FastReport .NET uses GDI+ rendering, so you can use all the nice GDI+ features such as smooth fonts and graphics, semi-transparent fills and gradients. This will help in creating visually appealing reports.
Report inheritance. You have many reports with common elements such as titles, logos or footers? Place all the common elements in a base report and inherit all other reports from this base.
