.NET Reporting in Visual Studio with List & Label

List & Label is a deeply integrated reporting solution for Visual Studio. All languages (C#, VB.NET,…), project types (WinForms, WPF, ASP.NET/MVC) and platforms (.NET 4.x, .NET Core) are supported out of the box. Get it up and running in Visual Studio in just a few minutes.

Developing .NET Applications in Visual Studio

.Net Reporting made easy: You can open List & Label’s report designer in the Visual Studio IDE or integrate it directly into your own application. Royalty free, of course. This way you enhance your product by adding one of the most powerful .Net report generators for Visual Studio on the market.

Visual Studio Integration

SmartTags make it easy to configure your report right in the IDE. The Sample Center, custom project wizards, NuGet packages and a Visual Studio Extension enable a jump start.

Choose and edit your data source in the familiar VS dialogs. Reuse your existing data sources by using one of the data providers to access more than 20 database systems (e.g. SQL Server, Oracle, OLE DB and ODBC).

Web Designer for ASP.NET/MVC

The Web Designer is independent of your browser. With the remote data provider you have direct and automatic access to all server-side data sources. Integrate WYSIWYG-functionality into your web application. Check out the reporting tool online demo now as an example for .NET reporting.

Ad-hoc designer

Ad-hoc Designer

You get a completely browser-based alternative to the locally installed Web Designer. It is lean, attractive and
up-to-the-minute. It is available as a stand-alone control. You can integrate it into your web applications quickly and easily, enabling
your customers to create simple reports in a browser – on almost any device (including tablets), and any operating system.

HTML5 Viewer

Display reports directly in a browser. The viewer offers you nearly all of the regular preview’s features, like show or hide subtables (expandable regions), apply filters via report parameters, sort data according to your needs, and drill down to a greater level of detail.

DataSource Component and Data Providers

List & Label supports C#, VB.NET, C++/CLI and all other CLS-compliant languages, as well as WinForms, WPF and web applications. The reporting component provides direct access to various database systems (e.g. Oracle, OLE DB, SQL Server and ODBC). Additional data providers can be used to connect List & Label to your favorite database in no time.

  • Apache Cassandra
  • ADO.NET
  • Business Objects
  • CData/RSSBus
  • CouchDB
  • CosmosDB
  • CSV
  • Firebird
  • Google Analytics
  • Google BigQuery
  • Google Sheets
  • 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
