Telerik Reporting and Report Server R2 2018 SP1 brings you localization, UI enhancements and more. Read on to learn what's new.
The first service pack update for the 2018 R2 release of Telerik Reporting and Telerik Report Server is live. This update delivers Report Server localization, Reporting engine stability enhancements, better Azure deployment support and many UI tweaks and improvements.
The Report Server Manager web application has been heavily modified in order to support localization out of the box. All string resources used throughout the application are now available in a common file where they are ordered by logical groups and can be easily modified or translated into another language.
Another important change has been introduced in the way users are managed. Now users can not only be disabled, but also deleted entirely from the management application.
The report viewer template file now uses string resource keys for all of its string resources. These keys can be found in a string resource file where their values can be replaced with custom ones. In addition, such string resource files can be added for a specific culture such as sr.ja-JP.js. When loaded the localized strings from the file will override the default ones.
The print action initiated by any of the desktop report viewers (Windows Forms, WPF, etc.) has been extended to support bitmap image formats. This improvement enables the desktop report viewers to consume reports from a remote report engine hosted as WebAPI in Azure. Windows Forms viewer now supports rendering in bitmap format, which makes it possible to connect it to an Azure-hosted reporting service.
These viewers also received refinements of their recently introduced Search functionality in the form of small tweaks of the search window. One such change is the ability to apply themes to the search window of the WPF Report Viewer.
