Reporting with Silverlight 4

A new project on CodePlex have just been launch. Silverlight Reporting is an new project created by 2 guys from Microsoft (Pete Brown and David Poll) decided to create a framework that will simplify the reporting with Silverlight 4. As you may know, Silverlight 4 already support printing and pagination but every time you want to generate a report you need to handle many thing manually. This framework which is at is initial release will simplify the process of generating simple report.

Here is a list of the feature included in the initial release:

  • automatic pagination
  • support for line items of varying height
  • total page count
  • templating
  • page headers and footers
  • event to allow hooking into printing at various stages

You can download this framework on CodePlex: http://silverlightreporting.codeplex.com/

(Report generated using the sample and printed using the XPS Printer Driver)

I’ve looked at the sample and it’s very easy to use. I’ll looking forward to use it in some of my projects.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass' favor.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
