NEW IN LIST & LABEL 27

App to the Cloud

You’d like to take your applications to the cloud? Then take List & Label right with you! Version 27 makes it easier than ever: independent from any printer drivers and with a completely browser-based Web Report Designer. And of course, there’s also a wide range of new functions for Windows clients.

| Web & Cloud

Web Report Designer for ASP.NET MVC

Web-Report-Designer-BG-MacBook
  • Let your users create report templates for their web applications directly in the browser. No additional software installation required.
  • Integrate the Web Report Designer easily into all common JavaScript frameworks such as React, Angular or Vue, thanks to Web Components technology.
  • Work platform-independent in the browser, on Windows, iOS, Linux and Android. The user interface has also been optimized for all common browsers on tablets.
  • Edit your existing List & Label templates right in the Web Report Designer without any data loss even with objects and features that aren’t supported yet. We’re going to continuously extend the feature set, until fully supported.
  • Benefit from the new Web Report Designer in List & Label Enterprise Edition at no additional cost.

| Web & Cloud

Easy Deployment to the Cloud

Easy deployment to the cloud
  • Use List & Label even in cloud environments that do not offer any infrastructure for printer drivers and spoolers.
  • Use the Visual Studio Deployment Pipeline to publish containerized applications quick and easy, e.g. on the Azure App Service platform. For this, all Windows Docker container images may serve as basis.

“Our tests with the printerless mode in Docker containers have been positive so far. This feature is essential for us as we run our new generation of products exclusively in Docker containers.”
