With the upcoming release of DXperience v2011 vol 2, XtraReports for Silverlight will feature a new WYSIWYG End-User Report Designer for in-browser report editing.

Silverlight End-User Report Designer 

The report designer will allow your users to:

  • Edit static content.
  • Re-position controls via drag & drop.
  • Change control size using the mouse.

In addition to the WYSISWYG Report Designer, v2011 vol 2 will ship with a new Silverlight Report Wizard...allowing your end-users to create new reports using a straightforward wizard interface.

Users must then choose the columns to display within the report.

This will be helpful for XAF Web UI, if it will include Silverlight technology later.

Is there anything to help with filtering or sorting?

I like the resdesign of the report wizard, hoping that has been applied to winforms, too. Make that thing look less like Access 95 :)
