Develop custom actions and enjoy PDF password encryption within your reports—part of the latest features in the new Reporting Beta.
In addition to all of the new features we introduced with the Reporting R3 2016 Beta 1, we now want to give you a taste of two new hot features.
You are now able to invoke custom logic upon clicking on a particular report item from within the report viewers. That functionality comes via a new custom action and handlers. For example, clicking a textbox could show a dialog that allows you to edit the text and save the change, after which the report will re-render. In addition, this way you can implement tooltips based on the report item data context and custom UI.
PDFs are the closest thing the internet has to a paper document. They’re standard, they look the same on every system regardless of what fonts you have installed, and typically aren’t something users can edit.
As with paper documents, some PDFs are intended to be confidential. And if you want to protect a report rendered in PDF, we now support native password-protected encryption with owner and optional user passwords to secure the rendered PDF reports. This allows no one to even view the PDF document content unless they have a password.
