Quality tested by tens of thousands of users — so you don’t have to
More than a decade ago, ActiveReports became the first reporting tool to work inside the Visual Basic IDE. Since then, the COM version — and now the .NET version — have not only been used by tens of thousands of developers, but also have become one of the only international reporting tools to be successfully localized, sold, and supported in Japan and Europe. Bottom line: ActiveReports is a proven reporting technology that just works right every time — even those features that are deemed “advanced” by our competition.
Almost unlimited report customization
ActiveReports is the world's most flexible reporting tool for .NET. It offers an extensive codebehind, event-based API for report creation, plus the ability to hook into pretty much any reporting behavior at run time. Developers have long used ActiveReports to embed advanced reporting features into their applications — features that would otherwise be considered impossible to achieve. Read our case studies to discover how ActiveReports has converted reporting into a competitive advantage for our clients.
Intuitive Visual Studio report designer
ActiveReports was the world's first reporting tool that offered an easy-to-use report designer tightly integrated with Visual Studio — integration that began with Visual Basic over a decade ago and continues with Visual Studio 2008 today. The report designer also supports C# and third-party hosting controls and offers an extensive programming model for creating and customizing reports at run-time.
Broad data binding support
ActiveReports allows data binding to a variety of data sources for reporting—including run-time unbound data — and also allows changing data source properties to provide ad-hoc reporting. It supports OLEDB; XML; .NET SQL clients; .NET collections such as data sets, data views, and data tables; and any entity that supports the iList interface.
Variety of export formats
ActiveReports allows you to export your reports into a variety of formats, including .PDF, HTML, .MHT, .RTF, Excel (.XLS), plain text (.TXT), comma-separated values (*.CSV), and image formats such as .BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .TIFF, .PNG, and .EMF.
End-user reporting tools
ActiveReports allows you to host the report designer in your application and distribute it royaltyfree. It also provides end-user report editing capabilities and easy access for saving and loading report layouts. In addition, it allows you to monitor and control the design environment and customize the report’s look and feel to meet the needs of your end users.
The ActiveReports .NET reporting tool features flexible, royalty-free distribution. You can easily distribute it using .NET file copy techniques, or you can compile it into your application.
Porter Valley needed a rapidly-executing reporting engine that could be easily customized to incorporate external elements such as photos and .PDF files. It also had to be capable of creating a professional-looking document with consistent formatting throughout — even though it consisted of elements from several different reports.
