Building a Better Databinding Ecosystem for Delphi

Thursday, June 30, 2016 | 2 comment(s)

The IDataProvider interface for .NET has enabled many features that are not available for all of the other platforms so far. Most importantly, it brings multiple report containers and nested tables. For C++, we've included a sample in LL21. This is sadly missing in Delphi. In addition, the current Delphi data-binding engine still works against the BDE, a technology that has been deprecated quite a while ago by Embarcadero.





Support for New Barcode Symbologies

List & Label's barcode support is surely one of the best and most complete among the reporting tools on the market. We've been steadily working on further extending on that strength, and List & Label 22 will come with even more supported symbologies and barcode designer functions.





How Your Data Will Never Look Awkward Again

Sorry for the gonzo title of this blog post – I just couldn't resist. I actually started working for combit in 1998 which is a full 18 years ago. And this is the feature I was asked for the most. No kidding. From the early days, way before we had the report container, people wanted this one thing – keep groups together. The reasoning is simple, if you have rather short groups but a huge number of them, you don't want page breaks within one group but rather get a page wrap before the group header and then the whole group on the next page. Totally simple, totally understandable, totally impossible so far.
