This is a powerful and flexible .NET report generator that includes a visual report designer and viewer, targeting Visual Studio developers
FastReport.Net consists of a set of complex tools that target developers in need of a comprehensive reporting solution. It can be used together with Visual Studio in the making of application-independent reports.
It is part of the FastReport family of products, alongside versions for Mono, VCL, or FMX (for RAD Studio XE) and provides full source code, which means its functionality can be customized and extended to match any taste.
FastReport.Net was developed as an initiative to provide programmers with a reporting solution that can connect to databases and fetch data, add forms to existing reports, as well as to manipulate various document formats which includes viewing, printing and exporting altogether.
FastReport.Net consists of three main components that are interconnected, working together in order to produce professional and completely manageable reports. The first one is the Demo component, which provides access to a collection of sample reports which can be further customized and used as a reference point for future projects.
However, creating a new report from scratch is made possible via the Designer section, which nicely puts together a very rich array of features that can be used to output personalized content. You can insert text, pictures, shapes, subreports, tables, matrixes, barcodes, charts, maps and even gauges and export or print it easily.
The third of the components is the Viewer, with possibilities to load and read reports created previously with the Designer. Moreover, you can email the existing report or watermark it for copyright protection.
Overall, FastReport.Net provides a rich and unique architecture that can work to the advantage of any developer, seeing as it is highly extensible. It uses managed code, thus resulting in a high degree of productivity and application security.
