Spursoft LightSwitch Extensions
Price: $89.95 USD
Updates / Fixes
This release contains several bug fixes and enhancements from the beta free version. They include the following
Upgraded to Visual Studio 2015. Visual Studio 2012 versions will no longer be offered.
Rotating Tab Control now allows for runtime setting of the orientation of the tabs by the user via a context menu. The orientaton is then saved for future uses of the application.
Menu Shell has context menu for screen tabs to choose the orientation of the tab headers (Top, Bottom, Left, Right).
New Silverlight control for displaying all themes included in the application which allows for changing theme at runtime by the user saving the setting for future uses of the application.
Multi-select combo box.
SSRS Viewer now has auto print functionality.
Default Presentation. A light weight extension which introduces (with no code just add an xml file and some lines to the Manifest element in the Config.xml file) the rotating tabs and Theme selection control to the original LightSwitch Shell.
Grouped DataGrid with aggregate functions.
HTML SSRS Viewer!!!! Thats right a designable SSRS Viewer for HTML Clients, mirroring the same ease of use as the ever popular Silverlight version offered in this suite for years.
Features & Benefits
Finally there is an SSRS control for the HTML Client which is as easy to use as the Silverlight version you have been using for years. Please see the demo athttp://htmlextensions.spursoft.com/HTMLClient. The demo has 3 functional tabs.
Control Demo: Functional demonstration of the SSRS Viewer in action. The properites can be set at runtime to try out the functionality.
Designer Image: This is an image of the property design inside the VS IDE.
Screen Code: Notice how little code is actually needed to show SSRS Reports embedded in LS HTML Client Screens. Technically 3. The rest is actually just for manipulation of the properties. There is also Intellisense :).
The demo also utilizes 2 of the other controls included in the HTML Extension, Web Browser and URL Image Viewer all developed with the same attention to design time detail. Why give up the ease of use of the LightSwitch design environment just to use HTML.
This extension contains a menu navigated shell and several themes along with several custom controls.
The purchase of this extension will allow the user to receive updates for a year along with email support and access to any betas of upcoming products.
The Shell is navigated by menus driven from the navigation groups. They can be docked by the user at runtime in 1 of 4 positions, Horizontally above and below the ribbon bar or vertically on the right or left side of the active screen area. It also allows the user to decide to dock the active screen tabs on the bottom or the top of the active screen area.
This extension also contains several themes; Twilight Blue, Twilight Green and Hill Country (inspired by the colors surrounding my home in the Hill Country of Texas).
This extension contains several controls such as a drop down list, SQL Server Reporting Server Viewer Control, Enhanced Selection DataGrid and Web Browser Control, Rotatng Tabs Control. The Rotating Tabs are a replacement for the Tab Control allowing the user or developer to rotate the tab headers Right, Left, Bottom or Top. The setting will be persisted for the next time the user runs the application. The drop down list is a simple list allowing for up and down arrow keys to navigate and select the items from the list. The SSRS Viewer is a WebBrowser based control allowing for the display of SQL Server Reporting Services Reports by way of ReportViewer control, WebService or spoofed Web Page. It can also be set to popup the report in resuable or new browser windows. The Enhanced DataGrid Control allows for the multiple selection of congruent or incongruent rows in the grid. It also interprets Ctrl Delete and determines if there are mutliple selections, if so it deletes all selected items. There is an undo changes command as well either by button on the toolbar or Ctrl Z keystroke.
I hope you will enjoy and find this extension helpful. Please feel free to let me know about any bugs you may find or feature requests. Be assured that there will be offerings coming which will be even more exciting than the ones included here. I am extremely excited to bring you this extension and would love to hear from you as to its usefulness and new features you might want.
