Report designer is a WPF reporting tool that allows users to design simple to complex SSRS, RDL, and RDLC reports with functionalities such as report parameter, expression, drill through, drill down, link to report, data visualization, sub-report, nested data regions with sort and filter, and more, similar to Microsoft SQL Report Builder, within an application.
Popular data sources such as Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SQL Azure, SQL CE, XML, Microsoft Access, Oracle, OLEDB, and ODBC are supported.
A built-in SQL query builder provides a convenient user interface for both technical and nontechnical users to create and view relationships between tables. With the SQL query builder, data query generation is possible with just a few clicks.
Report items such as tables, matrices (pivot tables), lists, charts, sparklines, data bars, maps, gauges, subreports, indicators, images, lines, and rectangles can be displayed.
The report designer supports creating reports with text, number, Boolean, and date-time input parameter types. It also has an option to change the layout of report parameters shown in the report viewer.
Expression support is available to represent reports with additional operations like mathematical computations, conditional formatting, inspection, conversions, etc. It features a built-in expression editor for creating expressions with the RDL report standard.
The report data explorer provides a hierarchical view of objects and can be used in reports with data sources, datasets, parameters, built-in fields, and images.
The report designer has an intuitive interface for adding report items with drag-and-drop operations.
Wizards provide predefined templates for tables, matrices, charts, and maps with simple configurational steps.
Report designer has support for basic editing operations such as cut, copy, paste, undo, and redo.
Built-in support is available to save and deploy reports directly to Microsoft SQL Reporting Server (SSRS) and the Syncfusion Report Server.
Report designer has a flexible way to view, edit, and manage multiple reports with an MDI interface.
Displayed reports can be exported to the popular file formats PDF, Word, Excel, and HTML.
Toolbars and parameter block appearances can be customized using templates.
All static text in the report designer can be localized to a desired language.
