Visual Studio Report Designer
The DevExpress Reporting suite provides a feature-rich report designer to create reports at design time (in Visual Studio).
Reports are platform-agnostic and can be published later on any supported platform such as WinForms, WPF, ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC.
The DevExpress Reporting suite provides a fully customizable End-User Report Designer for ASP.NET - so that end-users can modify reports at runtime. You can integrate it into a new or existing application.
All elements can be bound to a data source in a uniform manner via drag and drop operations.
DevExpress Reports support various data shaping features that include the following.
Support for Parameters
To filter data at the data source level, use query parameters that can be embedded directly into a SQL string.
Content Editing in Print Preview
The DevExpress Reporting suite supports interactive document editing in Print Preview. This enables you to customize field values directly in a preview document before printing or exporting it.
You can use standard editors or implement custom ones, and validate user input as well as format edited values.
To enable readers to show or hide specific document sections in a Print Preview, enable the drill-down feature by setting a single property.
Styles and Appearance Settings
Provide uniform appearance settings to report elements via style sheets.
Conditionally change the appearance of any element using formatting rules.
