What's New in Q1 2013 Version 18.104.22.168, released on February 2, 2013
OLAP Charting Engine
New in the Q1 2013 release of Telerik Reporting is the Graph Report Item (Beta) which will supersede the old chart report item. The new report item is a data analysis tool that helps developers and end-users visualize multidimensional data. In the Graph item the data is represented by graphical symbols, such as bars in a bar chart, lines in a line chart, or slices in a pie chart. The Graph can display data in two or more dimensions arranged in categories and series, and utilizes the built-in Telerik Reporting OLAP data processing engine to summarize and quantify the data.
Visualizations (chart types)
The Graph report item provides a set of new visualization capabilities which, when used properly, will
help your users understand data quicker and make better decisions.
- Scatter and Bubble charts (with smooth, straight or no line; with or without markers)
- Polar, Filled Polar (with or without markers)
- Column, Clustered Column, Stacked Column, 100% Stacked Column, Range Columns including straight or smooth (Bezier) lines
- Bar, Clustered Bar, Stacked Bar, 100% Stacked Bar, Range Bar
- Area, Stacked Area, 100% Stacked Area, Range Area including straight or smooth (Bezier) lines
- Line, Stacked Line, 100% Stacked Line (smooth or straight; with or without markers)
- Pie, Doughnut
- Rose Chart, Stacked Rose Chart, 100% Stacked Rose Chart
- Combinations of all series types, scales and coordinate systems without limitations
- Combinations of charts in a cross table, which provide for an endless ways for visualizing multidimensional data
Here are some of the new charts developers can create with Q1 2013:
Rose Chart (Telerik Reporting)
Sparkline with many data points (Telerik Reporting)
Column sparkline with conditional formatting and many data points (Telerik Reporting)
Bar and Line combination chart (Telerik Reporting)
Column and Area combination chart (Telerik Reporting)
The new charting engine is not
backwards compatible with the old one. The architectural differences are
too great for creating a meaningful automatic upgrade procedure.
For those of you using Visual Studio, we have added a new class
(Telerik.Reporting.Graph) which will allow using both charts in a report
for backwards compatibility.
In the Report Designer both charts can also work simultaneously in
existing reports, however adding a new chart to a report will insert the
new chart only.
