Reporting - Tips & Tricks (October 2019)

Reporting Team Blog
11 November 2019

We had some terrific report-related feedback this month and wanted to share a few interesting support tickets with our developer community. Thank you for the continued support – we appreciate it

Enhancements

Before I get to the support tickets, I’d like to point to an important enhancement that was not included in our What’s New list for v19.2 release:

  • With v19.2.3, you can embed fonts into a generated PDF file when exporting reports within Linux. To do so, you’ll need extra native dependencies such as ICU and Harfbuzz. Please review our online documentation for more information: ASP.NET Core Reporting - Docker Support.

  • We enhanced our Arabic text layout algorithm when exporting reports within Linux (v19.2.3). Refer to the following screenshot for more information:

  • With v19.2.4, you’ll be able to enable the DevExpress.XtraPrinting.Native.PrintingSettings.UseGdiPlusLineBreakAlgorithmstatic property to use the GDI+ line break algorithm for exported PDF files. This enhancement mostly affects the creation of PDF files with CJK (or Thai) fonts. You’ll be able to avoid any discrepancies in line breaks between report appearance within the print preview and an exported PDF file. Refer to the following table for a comparison of different PDF export modes (and associated print preview results):
