Visual Studio Report Designer
The DevExpress Reporting suite provides a feature-rich report designer to create reports at Visual Studio design time.
The created reports are platform-agnostic and can be published later on any of the supported platforms that include WinForms, WPF, ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC.
The DevExpress Reporting suite provides a fully customizable End-User Report Designer for WinForms. You can either integrate it into an existing application, or create a new reporting application from scratch.
All elements can be bound to a data source in a uniform manner using drag and drop operations. If necessary, you can add interaction between various elements to filter data or visualize data at different detail levels.
DevExpress Reports support various data shaping features that include the following.
Support for Parameters
To filter data at the level of a data source, 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 previewed document before printing or exporting it.
You can use standard editors or implement your custom ones, validate the 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 by using style sheets.
Conditionally change the appearance of any element by using formatting rules.
