    Hello Reporter!

    I am happy to announce that this functionality was released with version 16.3.0! HTML output and import templates received a re-work and new functionality. Please try this functionality in the new release and submit any new requests you might have.

    Thank you for your suggestion!

  2. Please add a method that we can call to inject the license key to the Windward engine.

    We use a custom method to securely deploy our configuration values. Due to this, we would like to have a function that we can call to provide the Windward license key to the library instead of it reading from the web.config file directly.

  3. Support for .NET Core (at least on Windows)

    All new development in our company is .NET Core, and we would like to continue using Windward Reports.

    From our correspondance it sounds like the problem is finding the license key. I can tell from experience that figuring out what config file to use and exactly how to specify the license key is also a pain for your users. I suggest, as someone else has also done, that you let the application supply the license key instead of trying to find it.

  5. Allow a .net JsonDataSourceImpl to be constructed using a .net stream

    When using the JsonDataSourceImpl, you must either point the data points to a file or web service. It would be helpful if the class constructor allowed a standard .net stream to be supplied.

    Hello Reporter,

    We have reviewed this internally and I am happy to let you know this is already supported! Please check out our .NET API documentation for how to construct your Datasource using a stream. Thank you for your idea, and please enter any other suggestions you have to improve our products.

  6. Generate Partial Reports

    We have some huge templates. Hundreds of pages long that results in reports that are thousands of pages long.

    While entering data in our system, we'd like to ability to preview what the report will look like. Therefore, we are requesting partial template generation.

    Example: I have just entered the data for pages 42-45 of a 200 page template. I would like to generate those page, which may end up being 5 or 10 pages long when generated.

  7. NuGet packages for specific targets such as .Net4.5 without the overhead of unwanted dlls such as MongoDb.

    Have NuGet packages for specific targets such as .Net4.5 without the overhead of unwanted dlls such as MongoDb and the J# dlls. The namespaces can get polluted when working in Visual Studio.
    It would be nice to have the smallest footprint of DLLs required to run Winward without have to currently remove one-by-one and hope nothing breaks.

    Hello Reporter,

    I am happy to tell you that this has been completed. In the new version of Windward all of the dependencies are required. Extra dlls like MongoDB have been removed. Thank you for your suggestion, and please submit any other ideas you have to improve our products.
