New DevExpress Reporting Video Tutorial

DevExpress MVP Jose Javier Columbie has started a new DevExpress Reporting training course on YouTube (DevExpress XtraReports). We want to thank Jose for his hard work and ongoing commitment to our tools. Jose welcomes feedback – so be sure to show your appreciation and let him know what you think of his course.

A Few Recent Enhancements of Note

RDLC and Crystal Reports Conversion Tool Supports New Expression Functions

As of last month, our Report Conversion Tool recognizes the following third-party expressions: RDLC’s Right and Mid functions, Crystal’s Length & Mid functions, and Crystal’s CurrentDate special field.
