Document Map and Parameter Support in WPF and Silverlight Report Viewer (Coming in v2010 vol 2)

DevExpress Data Blog

We’re adding support for report parameters and document map (generated by report bookmarks) to our WPF and Silverlight reporting tools. Take a look:

WPF Report Map

These new features, available in both WPF and Silverlight, recognize the native support for parameters and bookmarks available in our report classes (that derive from XtraReport). The main idea behind our reporting tools (which is what brought me to them in the first place) is that the report classes themselves can be abstracted away from the client side in such a way that given any new client technology X, our engineers already have a rich middle report class that simply needs to get rendered in X. In fact, here is the Silverlight rendering of the same report (exactly the same class) rendered above in WPF:

Silverlight Report Map

Our reporting tools therefore become truly client agnostic. Therefore use our tools with confidence! If the client technology changes, rest assured that your reporting investment will yield dividends far into the future.

As always, if there are any comments and/or questions, feel free to get a hold of me!

@Giorgos: The document map (if created properly within the report) should just appear. Are you looking for help in creating document maps?
