Yes, You are Right...Creating Reports is a Royal Pain in the Neck!
Tedious, Boring, Unfulfilling, Repetitious and Time Consuming are all adjectives that describe how most developers think of reporting. Let's face it, creating reports is not fun and can drive even the sanest among us mad. Worse yet are the high prices and outrageous runtime deployment fees associated with some of today's most popular tools. It is for these reasons that we set out to break the mold and deliver a reporting platform that is affordable, royalty free, easy-to-use and does not box you into a corner.
We cannot make users reduce the demand for individual reports, but we can change the way in which you approach report design - now and into the future...
Introducing XtraReports, our next generation Reporting platform for Windows® Forms and ASP.NET developers! XtraReports was engineered to help you create stunning reports for your end-users in the shortest possible time - yet maintain all the capabilities you've come to expect from today's most powerful reporting solutions. With full Microsoft® Visual Studio integration, XtraReports Suite allows you to build reports in the same exact way you build a typical Windows® Forms application. XtraReports uses the same code editor (C#, VB.NET or J#), the same Property Grid, the same component Toolbox, the same alignment toolbar, and ALL available Visual Studio IDE resources.
XtraReports classes persist in exactly the same way as your Windows .NET classes, so there is no need for convoluted external file types. That's right, XtraReports only needs standard code files, which makes deployment a breeze for you and your team. No more monolithic unmanaged binaries - just one lightweight class!
Like all Developer Express .NET components, full source code is available and your purchase is backed by a 60 day no questions asked money back guarantee.
