A Few Recent Enhancements

Visual Studio Report Designer - Improved Error Handling

Our Visual Studio Report Designer for .NET 6 / .NET 5 / .NET Core apps tracks the Microsoft.CodeAnalysis NuGet package and informs you if it is not referenced when your project includes scripts (error XRD105).

Entity Framework Core 6 in the Visual Studio Report Designer

Entity Framework 6 support is now included in our Visual Studio Report Designer for .NET 6 / .NET 5 / .NET Core apps. You can use this framework to bind your reports to MS SQL, MS SQL Compact Edition, PostgreSQL (Npgsql), and SQLite databases.
