A Few Recent DevExpress Reports-related Enhancements

A new image sizing mode - Cover

As you may already know, we recently added a Cover image sizing mode. In this mode, the smaller side of the image is scaled to match control dimensions (height or width). The larger side is scaled proportionally and exceeds the control’s bounds. Portions outside control boundaries are clipped.

Chart Designer - 3D Series

The Chart Wizard in our new .NET Core Report Designer allows you to integrate 3D series within XRChart controls.

Note: Our new 3D series are not yet available on Linux-based platforms/Azure. A report with a 3D chart series will raise an exception on these platforms.

Blazor - Asynchronous Engine

Those using our Blazor Report Viewer may know that the PreviewReportCustomizationService.CustomizeReportAsync asynchronous method was not available previously. We removed this limitation in our most recent v21.1 update. As such, you can now register PreviewReportCustomizationService service implementations and call the DefaultReportDesignerContainer.UseAsyncEngine method to access threads from the thread pool when reporting components load, save, or export reports.
