Snap is a simplified WinForms reporting platform that allows end-users to easily generate reports using a familiar Microsoft Word-inspired interface.
Snap combines the intuitive word-processing functionality of the DevExpress WinForms Rich Text Editor with the power of a traditional report designer. This easy-to-use WYSIWYG interface allows end-users to create, modify and preview reports in the same way they will appear on printed paper.
Master-Detail Mail-Merge Documents
Snap allows you to use mail-merge functionality in reports, with support for master-detail data sources, in-place filtering and document navigation.
Supported File Formats
Extended Data Connectivity
Snap provides the Create Data Source wizard to link a document with an external data source, as well as the feature-rich Query Builder to customize the data source settings and shape the incoming data.
Multiple Data Sources and Side-by-Side Reports
Snap enables you to bind documents to multiple data sources that are independent of each other, to combine different data in a single report.
Extended Data Shaping
Data Visualization Tools
You can easily modify the appearance of a Snap report by applying a built-in template.
Snap provides a complete programming interface to create and customize documents from code. The Snap API is also included in the Office File API, to automatically generate mail-merge documents on the server.
