Telerik Report Server
With R3 2023, we have enhanced our PDF export engine and now allow report authors to generate accessible PDF documents from the Telerik Report Server. We improved the structure elements and structure tree generation of the generated document. What that means is that each text span and image and drawing in the document belong to a semantic tree so that assistive technologies such as screen readers recognize it and allow better navigation among the information. This means produced documents now meet the requirements of the PDF/A-1a (“a” for accessibility) standard.
Report authors can now seamlessly visualize KPI data by using the new Linear Gauge. The Linear Gauge Item is a versatile and visually engaging component that finds application in data visualization, particularly in contexts where conveying measurements, progress, or metrics is crucial. This dynamic element is adept at presenting information along a linear scale, offering an intuitive and precise representation of values.
Additionally, the Radial Gauge Item that we introduced in R2 2023 received an update so that all the scalar properties of the model represent units relative to the item's size. This way the item’s content resizes gradually when its bounds are changed.
The addition of align support to the image within a PictureBox Item represents a significant enhancement in visual design and layout flexibility. This feature allows report authors to precisely control the alignment of images like logos within the PictureBox, ensuring that the visual presentation meets specific report design requirements.
The Gauge Report Item Wizard pane in the Web Report Designer is a user-friendly interface that empowers report authors to effortlessly incorporate dynamic and visually striking gauge elements into their reports. The Gauge Report Item Wizard pane streamlines the design process, enabling even those with minimal coding expertise to craft compelling and informative reports, enhancing the overall data visualization capabilities of the Web Report Designer.
