Release History

Telerik Reporting Q3 2014 (v8.2.14.1027)

October 26, 2014

What's New


New 2D Barcode types (QR and PDF417)

The current Barcode report item is extended to support QR (Quick Response) codes and the PDF417 matrix barcode. The new 2D types now allow you to create two-dimensional barcodes which contain more information than the traditional 1D barcodes.

New Choropleth Map Report Item

The choropleth map provides an easy way to visualize how a measurement varies across a geographic area. It is similar to a heat map, but is overlaid on a geographic map where map areas are shaded in proportion to the measurement. An example of a choropleth map is showing population density across countries.

Text Justification

A much requested feature, which will allow you to apply justify alignment to the text in the plain text report items: Textboxes and Checkboxes.

Query Builder

Now the Standalone Report Designer provides a graphical query designer to help you create queries to retrieve data from a relational database. Use the query designer to explore the database tables and views, interactively build an SQL SELECT statement and view the result of your query.

HTML5 Report Viewer Item Template

This is a Visual Studio item template which simplifies significantly the addition of the HTML5 Report Viewer to your existing projects. The template adds an HTML page with the HTML5 Report Viewer within your project, together with the REST Report Service and all needed dependencies, references and files.

Support for multiple instances of the REST Report service

This feature will allow you to utilize the HTML5 Report Viewer in Web Farms (e.g. Azure with multiple instances).
