What's New in ComponentOne Studio, 2015 v2

We're thrilled to announce the ship of our second major release of 2015! Below you'll find all the top features and enhancements, controls, and editions we're releasing.

Full support for Visual Studio 2015

Sim-shipping Visual Studio 2015

All .NET controls will sim-ship with Microsoft Visual Studio 2015.

New Edition: Web API

Export Anything, Anywhere! While we plan to release the Web API across most of our platforms eventually, it’s currently available as a technical preview in the ASP.NET MVC Edition, where users will be able to explore its flexibility and power as an exporting feature. Web API will be sold as part of the ComponentOne Studio product (like our OLAP controls) and will not be available in any individual editions.

With our Web API, you can create a pie chart and export it to an image, export your grid to Excel, or import a full Excel file into a FlexGrid. The possibilities are limited only by the developer’s imagination.

WinForms Edition

New Control: Report Preview for WinForms (Beta)

Display C1Report and SSRSReports in a single viewer! The modern-looking design features a sidebar and ribbon in today’s best design trends; zooming; full print capabilities; search; export; preview; tooltips; and more.
