Development
with List & Label

List & Label is a reporting component for developers and brings extensive and convenient print, export and preview functionality to your applications.

Functional Principle

The choice is yours: whether you opt for data binding or choose to work without a database, or whether you are developing a desktop or server/web server application, you can enhance your software by adding only a few lines of code (or none at all with .NET). This way, you include a host of reports and decide which data is used for List & Label while designing or exporting.

Integration in Visual Studio

Jochen Bartlau, Head of Development for List & Label, shows in this video, how easily the reporting tool can be integrated into a .NET Core application (duration: 2:53 min).

This way, you include a host of reports and decide which data is used for List & Label while designing or exporting.

Data Providers and DataSource Component

Not a single line of code is needed with DataSource component. List & Label provides direct access to various database systems or database drivers such as SQL Server, Oracle, OLE DB, ODBC and many more. Additional data providers can be used to connect List & Label to your favorite database in no time. A SQL Server Database report designer usually just takes three lines of code, just as all the other options below:

  • Apache Cassandra
  • ADO.NET
  • Business Objects
  • CData/RSSBus
  • Cassandra
  • CouchDB
  • CosmosDB
  • CSV
  • Firebird
  • Google Analytics
  • Google BigQuery
  • Google Sheets
  • GraphQL
  • IBM DB2
  • JSON
  • LINQ
  • MariaDB
  • Mixed data sources
  • MongoDB
  • MS Access
  • MS Azure
  • MS Excel
  • MS SharePoint
  • MS SQL Server
  • MySQL
  • NuoDB
  • OData
  • ODBC
  • OLE DB
  • Oracle
  • ORM/EF
  • Progress OpenEdge
  • PostgreSQL
  • Redis
  • REST
  • RSS
  • Salesforce
  • SharePoint
  • SQLite
  • XML

 

You can create your own data providers as well via the IDataProvider interface , in order to connect List & Label to virtually any data source.

Numerous Export Formats

List & Label lets you flexibly export your reports into the formats you need. This makes it easy to pass on reports. In addition, you can define specific options for the respective formats, such as password protection or additional document properties.

Dynamically Created Reports – DOM

DOM enables you to dynamically create projects. You can use your own project wizards, and a feature-reduced version of the Designer. What’s more, the DOM API allows you to define practically any property by code. DOM is particularly easy to use with .NET and VCL, and can be used with a range of other programming languages, too.

Powerful Automation

Imagine what it would be like to have a project wizard that adapts project templates to the user’s requirements before the Report Designer has even opened. List & Label offers this functionality. Users can select the fields they require for an invoice from their database, and when they open the Designer, the invoice will be almost ready to go – with the address field and item list already filled out.

Internationalization

Select the language of your choice. In the Enterprise Edition, the Report Designer is available in more than ten languages. Unicode support and the localization of project files make your application fit for international teams and projects. If you can’t find the language you’re looking for, please feel free to contact us.
