What's New in Telerik Reporting Q3 2013 Version 188.8.131.526, released on Oct. 16, 2013
HTML5/JS Report Viewer with Mobile Support
Q3 2013 introduces the Telerik Reporting HTML5 Report Viewer with mobile support. This new viewer harnesses the power of HTML5 to display Telerik Reports in all leading HTML5-compliant desktop browsers. This includes the ability to serve reports to touch-enabled mobile devices running on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and WinRT operating systems.
The report viewer supports all .NET web platforms: ASP.NET, Ajax, and MVC (MVC server wrappers are provided in the distribution).
Out of the box, the report viewer is built to output a responsive design and fluid layout that uses CSS3 media queries for improved experiences on various devices and resolutions. It will switch the viewer layout to accommodate smaller touchscreen sizes by moving some of its commands to a sliding menu. On tablets and regular browsers, it will use the regular full-command layout.
The HTML5 Report Viewer has been implemented with new and modern user experience where the parameter area and all parameters are arranged in a vertical list, and are touch-friendly. There are visual feedbacks (such as screen blurring) when exporting, changing pages, printing reports, etc.
Telerik Reporting REST Service
The new REST report service is an abstraction over the reporting engine that exposes the reports on the server as resources: instead of commanding the reporting engine to process and render reports, the clients see the report documents as resources as if you have static PDF, Excel or Microsoft Word documents.
Graph Item Improvements
We have added new Stepped Line and Stepped Area charts which use special series that use only vertical and horizontal lines to connect the data points. These charts are used when the data is not continuous in nature but characterized by a jump from one level to another. In addition, you now have greater control over which series should appear in the legend, and over the label appearance, rotation, and arrangement.
A new Swap Graph Axes tool will help you switch the axes in a chart.
