    Is the ActiveReports 17 documentation still a work in progress? It seems to be kind of bare-bones, without remarks and examples.

    If you compare the AR 17 online help entry for the SectionReport Fields property ( ) with that of the AR 16 version ( ) you will see what I mean.

    code-based SectionReports didn’t work in ActiveReports 17.0.0 and .NET 7!

    Is there any roadmap for this request available?

    Thank you.

    Hi Alexander,

    Please refer to the following forum post for reference:

    Hi Alexander,

    To elaborate further, we have been wanting to port Code-Based Section Reports to .NET 6/7 for a long time, but unfortunately we have been unable to due to some important parts of the SDK not being available in .NET 6/7 yet. We’ve been communicating with Microsoft about it and it has been getting pushed back over and over again. We were hoping to have it working for AR 17 as they had told us the SDK would have the necessary updates in November, but now that’s been pushed back to Spring 2023 again. I’m hopeful that this will be the last time it is pushed back and we will be able to implement this before AR 18, but unfortunately we are at the mercy of Microsoft until those updates are made.

    In the meantime, please follow the workaround that Askshay mentioned above. I apologize for the frustration in waiting for this to be available.

    Hi CLAS,

    Again, Thank you for pointing this out to us. We have re-added all the remarks and examples in the ActiveReports 17 Documentation.

    Where is the nuget package for GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Document? The last version is shown as 16.4.0 and this is preventing us upgrading beyond that (all the other v17 updates fail due to a dependency on this one)

    Hi Simon,

    In ActiveReports 17 GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Document assembly and NuGet package are merged with GrapeCity.ActiveReports assembly and NuGet package.

    For more information please refer to the following pages of our documentation: Breaking Changes

    Thank you. I’d seen the breaking changes page but hadn’t appreciated that a nuget package manager update would fail as a result.

    In case it helps anyone else - the way to update these is to install the new 17.x version, then from VS use the “Tools → Upgrade to Active Reports 17” option to update.

    Hi Simon,

    Thanks for sharing your solution with us as it will others who might be doing something similar.
