New version of FastReport FMX

In the current release we've done everything for optimization of FastReport FMX, especially for Mac OS! We've optimized everything from report core and up to the text rendering on screen. In new version the preview window uses double buffering and redraws only new region of the page, which makes report preview smoother when scroll report pages . Starting from XE7 all text output of report objects is performed by FastReport FMX methods bypassing the standard text output. Such approach allows to speed up text rendering through font caching ten times! The report core has also undergone some changes. For faster text comparison we imported new function from Carbon library, it decreases time of report building on Mac OS. Changes also touch calculations of report objects: now report engine calculates all sizes with font cache. The object split mechanism was changed as well to make D2D and GDIP contexts compatible for calculation of objects sizes. Full list of changes:---------------+ New double buffered preview. It draws only objects which appear on screen (increase preview performance)+ New native text rendering with font caching starts with XE7 significant increase all text rendering and calculation* Improved rendering behavior to minimize differences between GDIP and D2D contexts (when report calculates sizes with one context and print with another)* Optimized rendering of report designer controls (Inspector, workspace, Rulers)* Optimization in the report engine* Improved split mechanism+ Added new faster text comparison from Carbon framework for Mac OS+ Added LineSpacing support for PDF export- Changes Width and Height calculation for report objects- Bitmap preview cache is optional now (use PreviewOptions.PagesInPictureCache)- Fixed FireDac rtti module- Fixed Alias editor for RAD Studio Berlin- Fixed background image in HTML export- Fixed incorrect frames draw for report object- Fixed JPEG images export- Fixed bug with unlimited pages when preview doesn't show pages- Fixed visual behavior of few object editors- Fixed PDF export memory leaks- Fixed TfrxSysMemoView editor- Fixed report inheritance from report template in the designer

New version of FastCube VCL - 2.6

In the new version we added an ability to restrict user from slice reconfiguration.Restrictions should be set for each zone separately in the zone Restrictions property. For the moment 3 types of restrictions are implemented: - zrDontMoveItems - disable field list change for the zone. The restrictions prevents from add, remove and move fields in the zone. - zrDontShowPopupMenu - disable zone context menu popup.- zrDontEditItemProperties - disable zone/field property editor showing. Several restrictions can be set simultaneously. Added an ability to control zone field list change by TfcxSlice events:-OnBeforeRemoveSliceFieldFromRegion: TfcxSliceFieldRegionChange - is called before field remove.-OnBeforeAddSliceFieldToRegion: TfcxSliceFieldRegionChange - is called before field add.-OnAfterAddSliceFieldToRegion: TfcxSliceFieldRegionChanged - is called after field add. TfcxSliceFieldRegionChange = procedure(ASliceFieldName: String; ARegionOfField: TfcxRegionOfField; var AAllow: Boolean) of Object; TfcxSliceFieldRegionChanged = procedure(ARegionFieldIndex: Integer; ARegionOfField: TfcxRegionOfField) of Object; OnBefore* events allow to cancel operation with field ASliceFieldName in the region ARegionOfField by changing AAllow to False. Fixed slice fields format handling.Now slice field format change instatly refreshes the slice grid, and does not change the format of other fields with the same data type.Additionally to that slice field format is saved and restored to/from the schema. Added new measure field property:TfcxMeasureField.ChangeNullToZero: booleanWhen the property is set to True the empty measure cells (cells which have no data) are shown with the value 0.

New FastReport .NET

✓  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.   [Core]+ added new objects PolyLineObject, PolygonObject+ added properties Page.UnlimitedPaperHeight, Page.UnlimitedPaperWidth* updated rotation drawing for angle of images [Designer]+ added welcome window displayed on the designer startup+ added splash screen showing during loading designer+ added new toolbar for editing of PolyLineObject, PolygonObject+ added unsaved report indication in window title+ added unlimited page width and height options to PageSetup window [Exports]+ added Bold, Italic simulation for "MS UI Gothic" font and similar in PDF export+ added export in JSON+ added property PDFExport.ShowPrintDialog for showing the print dialog after opening the PDF document+ added export PolyLineObject, PolygonObject in PDF+ added property PDFExport.TextInCurves for creating the PDF document without fonts+ added possibility to send multiple reports as attachments in Email export+ added ToMultipleFiles property in XAML export* improved export in Excel 2007 with enabled property Seamless* improved drawing of dash-dot lines in PDF export for correct printing from the Chrome- Fixed bug with <div> style(numbers format) in Html Layers export- fixed bug with pictures with size over the page in PDF export- fixed bug with paths in exports: XAML, SVG, PostScript, PPML- fixed bug with shadows in HTML export- fixed bug with TextObject.Underlines in HTML export- fixed bug with images hash counting in PDF export- fixed bug with hyperlinks in Trial version in PDF export- fixed bug(Header added) in PostScript export- fixed bug with fonts in PostScript export [WebReport]+ added properties Left, Top, Width, Height in CustomDrawEventArgs (can be used in WebReport.CustomDraw)+ added showing Print Dialog in print in PDF+ added properties WebReport.DocxRowHeightIs, WebReport.PdfShowPrintDialog+ added function WebReport.PrintInPdf(bool ShowPrintDialog) for setup showing the Print Dialog in PDF* usage examples of WebReport are updated and relocated to the \Demos\C#\Web folder* updated internal jQuery to v1.12.3- fixed bug with CustomDraw event inside TableObject and Matrix- fixed bug with incorrect MIME type in inline PDF printing- fixed bug with switching Localization in ASP.NET (not MVC) [Extras]+ added JsonConnectionEditor.cs in FastReport.Json connector (\Extras\Connections\FastReport.Json) [Online Report Designer]+ added viewing of existing Highlights expressions in the report+ added resize of component in any dimension
