NextReports 5.4 is available

  • submit to reddit

NextReports  reporting suite has reached version 5.4.

One of the most important new feature in NextReports Designer is the possibility to have dynamic series for charts. Till this version, a chart could have up to 10 static columns (series) for Y axis to see comparative data. Now, users can define an sql for Y axis series. By doing so, your series are dynamic and their number is not restricted.

Other new features include a custom document size, a new TOTAL_PAGE_NUMBER variable for PDF and a new property for PDF and HTML reports to include a background image.

Inside NextReports Server, widget settings parameters can now be dynamic. In the same way as in scheduler definition, values for dynamic parameters will be computed at run time.

A drill-down definition has now a new URL type. Through this type, users can be redirected from a widget (chart, table) to any external url. This is useful when you integrate NextReports Server with your application and you need to see more information from it.

Iframe settings is a new feature inside settings section. Here you can define if you want to allow or not for iframes, if you want authentication and what special key you want to use for the encryption parameters algorithm.

As always the Demo Online Server  was updated to this new version.
