Up until version 27, you were able to use the HTML5 Viewer in your own .NET web applications in order to display a report preview directly in the browser. Interactive user actions such as drill down, filtering data using report parameters and much more were already possible. But the technology that was utilized for this is getting older now, as for example the jQuery framework. With the new Web Report Viewer, we have created a modern, highly compatible replacement, which has been available since version 27 (year 2021).
In this summary you will find the most important new features and improvements in Service Pack 27.003. The individual entries were taken directly from the English Readme. A detailed list of all changes can be found in the ServicePack.pdf in your installation as well as in the Service Pack download section.
The Web Report Designer is an essential tool for using List & Label within web applications. We’re striving for constant improvements and enhancements – the plan is to add new features with each service pack we publish, until we’ll reach feature parity with the well-established Desktop Designer. Here’s a first glance what we were working on since the release.
The new service pack for List & Label 27 brings many enhancements and improvements especially for the new Web Report Designer as well as for Delphi and .NET developers. In addition, the new drag & drop interface for charts now also supports the selection of an aggregate function. The report template preview in the Report Server uses the new Web Report Viewer, styled according to the applied Report Server customization. Read our blog post for more highlights.

List & Label’s chart dialog offers a load of possible customizations. However, as always, with great power comes great complexity. Even creating a simple pie chart could have taken some time if you’re not yet familiar with List & Label’s chart features. As you can already easily create crosstabs via Drag & Drop, and we just recently improved the table’s drag & drop features, offering a thorough D&D support for charts was the next logical step on our path to a simpler, more intuitive end user desktop designer.
