The latest service pack 28.004 for List & Label and the Report Server brings a new chart type in the Web Report Designer and Windows 11 23H2 support. Experience improved user interfaces alongside significant performance upgrades especially for horizontal gauges. For a detailed list of all changes, see the ServicePack.pdf in your installation or in the service pack download section.
List & Label already has a wide range of functionality to control the page flow as needed. Each object has a “Pagebreak Before” property, just like the elements in a report container. Tables have an additional page break condition that is evaluated for each line. However, one feature was missing: forcing a page break within a text. This was changed in version 28.
Report parameters have gained great popularity since their introduction. They offer a flexible and easy way to create dynamic reports. In particular, the ability to create data-bound parameters has been well received. However, in combination with larger databases, there were some limitations that we finally eliminated now in version 28.
The new service pack 28.003 for List & Label extends your reporting with support for Embarcadero RAD Studio 11.3 and new chart types in the Web Report Designer. In addition, the corresponding Enterprise NuGet packages are now available for all .NET assemblies for a smooth integration into your projects. For a detailed list of all changes, see the servicepack.pdf in your installation or in the service pack download section.
Azure Cosmos DB is a fully managed Microsoft NoSQL database for modern app development, which is growing in popularity. Various APIs are available for connecting to Cosmos DB, as for example SQL API, Cassandra API or MongoDB API. Since we’re already able to connect to MongoDB or Cassandra through their own data providers, we’ll use the SQL API for the provider.
Microsoft is putting more and more obstacles in its Office 365 package, making it difficult to send SMTP emails “just like that” with basic authentication (see e.g. here) and with MAPI/XMAPI in the cloud anyway. But on-premise also brings new challenges (have you ever dealt with our Cross-Bitness-Proxy for x86 applications and x64 Office? 🙂 ). So it was about time to offer a new, up-to-date solution for the very frequently used email delivery.
Customer satisfaction is a crucial factor in List & Label’s success. That’s why we invited you back in January to participate in our List & Label survey. We value your feedback on both the product itself and our services. And, of course, we were anxious to receive your input regarding improvements and what you would like to see in the future.
Faster reports, more flexible export, and the option to upload to secured FTP servers: The new Report Server 28 offers many new functions for its users. Some are customers’ wishes, like using project includes and subreports. This way, recurring elements such as letterheads, tables or charts can easily be reused in new report templates.
