Reports can be printed and are resolution independent. They can also be exported to PDF (requires Monkeybread Software DynaPDF Starter Edition), HTML, and CSV.
Shorts supports SQLite, MySQL, Postgres, CubeSQL, Informix (requires the SQL plugin from Monkeybread Software), and ODBC.
The following basic drawing elements are available:
Text, Line, Oval, Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle, Text, RTF Text (desktop only), Image, Barcode (requires Monkeybread BarcodeGenerator)
All of these elements can be used in any combination anywhere on a page, group, or in a document. Each page can be a different size and orientation.
Text objects expand vertically to fit the text in the block. The AutoHeightAdjust property is all you need to set to get this to work. Whenever you, or the rendering classes, request the bounds of the text object the text height is calculated. By adding an AutoHeightAdjust Text object to a GroupItem you automatically grow the GroupItem too! This makes it really easy to create ‘rows’ of variable height data.
The auto height adjustment isn’t perfect, though. One drawback is speed. We recommend that you limit the number of Text objects that get the auto height adjust set to true.
