XAF Mobile - Preview and Test the Report Viewer in v17.2.7+

Our XAF Mobile Report Viewer is now available for testing! It ships with the v17.2.7 update as a preview you can enable using a feature flag. We expect to release the Report Viewer in v18.2.

With this new feature, XAF Mobile app users can both download and preview reports, just like they did in WinForms and ASP.NET projects. The Report Viewer is based on the HTML5 Document Viewer and uses its Mobile Mode.

Ready to try the new Report Viewer? Read our new KB article to learn how to use the new feature: XAF Mobile Report Viewer - Preview in v17.2.7+. Remember to backup your projects before testing.

We Need Your Feedback
Try the Report Viewer and tell us what you think. How did you like it? How can we improve it? We would like to hear from you and we appreciate your help improving XAF Mobile.

Hello Mohamed! Our early testers and their end users specifically requested this feature. We added the Report Viewer to XAF Mobile Applications to save the end users' time, effort and to make the user experience smooth. Previously, the Reports V2 Module allowed end users to only download a simple predefined report created in a WinFroms or ASP.NET application. They had to view it in a different application. Now, even away from their workstation, end users can view complex reports and reports with parameters, use built-in search and get the most up-to-date data.
