Oct 24, 2022 | Press Releases

Constance, Germany – combit, a leading provider in the space of reporting components for software developers, is very pleased to announce that version 28 of its List & Label reporting tool has been released today. The reporting tool supports developers in .NET, Delphi, Java, Visual C++ and many other programming environments. In addition to new capabilities for data visualization on the Web, List & Label 28 also includes a variety of new export format options and supports Microsoft’s latest .NET Framework 7.

combit continues to expand the functionality of its reporting component with the release of List & Label 28. The software company is focusing primarily on further development of the Web Report Designer with new designer objects and charts for data visualization, as well as an optimized table editor. .NET developers will benefit from support for .NET 7, easy connectivity to Azure Cosmos DB and MariaDB database systems, and improved runtime when using images in data sources. Furthermore, extensively enhanced Excel export with support for formulas in worksheets and a future-proof solution for sending email via the Microsoft Graph API are also available to users.

New functions are also provided for the Report Server included in the List & Label Enterprise Edition. The self-service reporting solution for businesses, which can also be used by software companies as an add-on for applications, has been expanded to include project includes and subreports. As a result, users will save lots of time in the future when integrating recurring elements such as letterheads, tables and charts. “Our agility helps us to respond quickly to new customer requirements and advance features which are strategically important to us. Consequently, we’ve been able to further develop List & Label in all areas during the course of this release cycle,” says Jochen Bartlau, managing director of combit and head of List & Label development.
