We've just released to beta a Visual C++ wrapper to our .NET reporting engine. And the first question you probably have is - WHY? The consensus from most C++ developers we spoke to was that C++ is now mostly for legacy applications and not for anything new. Well here's why:
So now if you are writing C++ applications and need reporting, or need to improve your existing reporting, Windward is available. If you are spending considerable time designing reports or if you want non-programmers to design their own reports we can save you a lot of time and make report design enjoyable. If you need standard reporting, document generation, or you are creating Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, or PowerPoint presentation we can give you a system where the designer is a natural fit for the report.
If you're is willing to give it a try, we would very much appreciate any feedback. If you try it and have any suggestions, hit a bug, etc., please email email@example.com. To try it out, please download:
Install AutoTag & the .NET engine, unzip the C++ sample, and run it. It should work fine. Again, any feedback greatly appreciated.
