ASP.NET Reporting - Script Editor (Coming soon in v15.1)

Thinking Out Loud
21 May 2015

One of the most requested features for our ASP.NET Report Designer has been the addition of scripting support.

I'm happy to let you know that v15.1 will ship with a built-in script editor - giving your users a convenient way to modify the behavior of report controls, bands or the report itself by using one of the following languages:

  • C#
  • Visual Basic .NET
  • JScript .NET

 
Scripting language is independent of the language used to create the report and can be specified for a report using the Designer's property grid.

ASP.NET Report Designer Scripting Language
 
The Report Designer's Script Editor is capable of syntax highlighting and autocompletion for the selected language. In addition, it provides access to every report element event handler and can generate code templates for these handlers in the scripting language being used.

The Script Editor also supports code validation. When you click the Validate button inside a report script, all errors are clearly marked with a red icon. Hover over the icon and you'll see what went wrong...
