Using Reporting Events in WPF and Silverlight to Create a Drill Through Report

Some new events have been added to the document preview model for both Silverlight and WPF:

  1. PreviewClick, (Silverlight/WPF)
  2. PreviewDoubleClick, (WPF)
  3. and PreviewMouseMove. (Silverlight/WPF)

These events will enable you to add some serious interactivity to your reports within Silverlight and WPF. I thought I should whip something up to give you a preview of the kinds of things you can do:

Master Report

  1. The master report is a list of sales per company
  2. When hovering over the order id the mouse cursor changes to the hand cursor (new PreviewMouseMove event)
  3. When clicking the order id, the invoice for that report pops up in the preview window (new PreviewClick event)

Invoice Report

While this example is in Silverlight, the same features are available in WPF as well (with the addition of the PreviewDoubleClick event).

What kinds of things will you do with these new events?

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