When a WinForms banded report designer like the XtraReports Suite is not enough, and you need a Microsoft Word-like solution so your end-users can more easily create new reports or modify those you ship using the same WYSIWYG experience found in today’s most popular word processor, look no further than Snap™.
WYSIWYG Reporting : DevExpress Snap
WYSIWYG Reporting

Snap is powered by the DevExpress RichEdit control and provides all the functionality you’ve come to expect from a powerhouse WinForms reporting tool. Simply said, all core features of the RichEdit control (including automatic table of contents, character, paragraph and table styles, multi-column page layout, etc) have been merged with the data centric features of our reporting platform. This marriage of a word processor and a report control significantly reduces the otherwise steep learning curve associated with traditional report designers and allows you to deliver highly intuitive solutions that meet and exceed end-user expectations.

Snap is the true definition of WYSIWYG Reporting. Whether you are creating a report, modifying an existing report or previewing it prior to printing, the document appears exactly the same as it will look on paper. You and your users never have to deal with the innate complexities of a traditional report designer. No bands, no more endless switching between design and preview modes.

Snap elevates ease-of-use and productivity to unrivaled levels.

Ease of use is not limited to the straightforward and highly productive nature of Snap’s Word inspired functionality. The rich collection of data shaping options that ship with Snap have been engineered to simplify the way in which you and your users approach reporting going forward. These include:

Grouping | Sorting | Data Filtering | Summary Calculations | Calculated Fields | Report Parameters | Data Formatting

Master-Detail : DevExpress Snap

No reporting solution is complete unless it provides an elegant way in which to create, maintain and modify hierarchical reports. Snap blows-away the limits associated with traditional sub-reports and makes it easy to generate even the most complex master-detail layouts with ease.

Integrated Report Items and Pre-Defined Appearances: DevExpress Snap
Integrated Report Items and Pre-Defined Appearances

Snap ships with a powerful collection of report elements that no professional reporting solution can live without. From charts, to checkboxes, images to barcodes…it’s a simple drag and drop away with Snap.

And of course, modifying the appearance of a report is a Snap…a simple mouse click allows you to apply built-in appearances across your report instantly.

Multiple  Data Sources and Side-by-Side Reports: DevExpress Snap
Multiple Data Sources and Side-by-Side Reports

So that your users can create combined reports, Snap allows you to easily bind your report to multiple un-related data sources.

And yes, side-by-side comparison reports are as easy to create as a standard table or multi-column layout.

Compatibility, Export and Localization: DevExpress Snap
Compatibility, Export and Localization

Like all DevExpress products, Snap can be fully localized to meet the language requirements of your end-users.
