Overview Reference
Original data produced by an application can now be transformed within the report designer without coding. Transformations include selecting, duplicating, moving, re-ordering, pivotizing and computing aggregations. See Report schema transformations.
The Image Box can now embed the first page of a PDF file. See Image Box.
The new Toolbox object, PDFBOX, can embed an entire PDF. See PDF Box.
You can create a Spider Web chart. See Category charts and drawAs property.
If the parent object is a propagating container, the child object does not fit in the remaining space for the parent object, and you set the Y-Size property to rest, the child now expands to the maximum extent of the parent rather than just the remainder of the parent. See Y-size property.
For X-Size Adjustment and Y-Size Adjustment, a value of expandToParent now causes the box to stretch as much as possible without intersecting the borders of a parent or sibling. See X-Size Adjustment and Y-Size Adjustment properties.
For business graphs and pivot tables, the new rangeUpperBound and rangeLowerBound properties define the highest and lowest values on the Y-Axis. See rangeUpperBound and rangeLowerBound properties.
For XY charts, the new domainUpperBound and domainLowerBound properties define the highest and lowest values on the X-Axis. See domainUpperBound and domainLowerBound properties.
Report elements now include a comment property. See comment property.
