A Few Recent Enhancements

Web Report Designer - Parameter Editing

We added an Edit icon next to the Parameters node in the Field List. As a result, you no longer have to expand the parameters node and are able to edit multiple parameters simultaneously within the Parameters dialog.

Web Report Designer - Drop-Down Editor Item Tooltips

We enhanced our drop-down editors to reflect their values within item tooltips.

WinForms and Web Report Designer - Culture Codes

The Localization Editor within the DevExpress Report Designer (for WinForms and for Web) now displays culture code near the language name.

Web Report Designer - Text Alignment Editor

The Text Alignment property includes a new customization UI.

Web Document Viewer - Editable Fields

The EditablePreviewEnabled static property - available since v19.2 – allows you to highlight editable fields in a report. The behavior of this feature has been modified for versions 20.1 and higher: when it is disabled, users cannot change a report’s editable fields, and the Highlight Editing Fields button is unavailable.

  • EditablePreviewEnabled = true

  • EditablePreviewEnabled = false

Web Document Viewer and Report Designer - The ParametersInitialized Event

The new ParametersInitialized event now occurs when report parameters are specified. This allows you to modify client-side parameter values after initialization and before they are used in the report.

This new event is available in both the standalone DevExpress Web Document Viewer and in the Web Report Designer’s built-in Preview.

Web Chart Designer - Drag and Drop Series

You can now drag series in the Chart Designer dialog to change their order.
