Studio for SharePoint

Words from the Editor

Bernardo Castilho Happy Holidays, Fellow Devs
Bernardo Castilho, Chief Technology Officer

Many times as I write my editorial piece, I think to myself, "Would I read this?" As a CTO and fellow developer, I realize every moment counts, especially around the holidays. I'm working on some big projects myself, and my mind is always racing with new ideas. So as I try to slow down to focus on what's important to you, SharePoint comes to mind.

You may think, "Wow, this guy calms his mind and thinks of SharePoint?" Well, yes, that's how I operate. I look at our Web Parts as a present, ready to go right out of the box. Fitting, right? If you work with SharePoint and are thinking about giving yourself a present this year, consider our Studio for SharePoint. You will impress users and deliver instant ROI. Happy Holidays and here's to continued success in 2011.

SharePoint 2010 portals are great platforms to facilitate communication and productivity. They can be used for business intelligence reporting, performance monitoring, record tracking, data entry, and so much more.

Enhanced Reporting in Studio Enterprise 2010 v3

The third release of Studio Enterprise 2010 made a splash with its reporting enhancements. In addition to RDL report definition support in C1Report, a revolutionary ReportViewer control for Silverlight was released. This control allows you to display reports (created by C1Report, SQL Server Reporting Services, and any other report engine capable of producing HTML or PDF), zoom, pan, select, copy, and print reports from within any Silverlight app.

This sample shows how to use the C1ReportViewer for Silverlight to display reports created with C1Report.

By just setting a few brush properties in Visual Studio you can quickly style ComponentOne Silverlight and WPF controls. The key is our innovative ClearStyle technology. No need for XAML templates, Expression Blend, or a professional designer.
