What's New in ActiveReportsJS v2.2

Pittsburgh, PA – October 13th, 2021 GrapeCity, a global provider of award-winning enterprise software development tools, is pleased to announce ActiveReportsJS v2.2. In the final release of 2021, users will discover several new features and enhancements that improve the product experience for developers, report authors, and end-users of your application. ActiveReportsJS v2.2 upgrades JavaScript developers' design toolkit for intuitive and dynamic reports.

Before the v2.2 release, report templates in ActiveReportsJS used a JSON format that complies with a well-defined structure. Now, the TypeScript declarations for the structure are exposed so JavaScript developers can build reports programmatically using the IntelliSense features of Visual Studio Code or other IDE that support TypeScript declarations. To find complete examples of building reports at runtime, visit the release blog.

In ActiveReportsJS, users have always been able to dynamically hide table columns at preview by setting the Visibility.Hidden property to an expression that depends on the report parameter values or other runtime variables. With the latest release, it is now possible to automatically resize other columns to take up the left space after the hidden columns are removed. To see a live demonstration of this feature, read the release blog.

While Fixed Page Layout could consist of multiple pages at design time to build pre-defined form layouts, this feature becomes even more flexible in ActiveReportsJS v2.2. With Fixed Page Layout enhancements, JavaScript report authors can dynamically exclude or include some pages at runtime depending on report parameter values of other runtime variables. In addition to updates to Fixed Page Layouts, ActiveReportsJS v2.2 includes image element support for rich text, Tablix designer enhancements, ES modules, and several new chart types. To learn more about these new features, visit the release blog.
