Konstanz, Baden Würrtemberg, Germany, 2010/09/22 - More intuitive, up to date and productive – The new version at full speed.
Software manufacturer combit will release a new version of its report generator List & Label at the end of October. The sixteenth generation contains numerous new features and according to the manufacturer it is far more intuitive and productive. “It is the best List & Label version we’ve ever had,” says List & Label project manager Jochen Bartlau of the coming version and adds with a smile. “I know that I say it every time but this time is now true as never before.”
combit has expanded on a grand scale the component for formatting reports. Developers can now equip reports or dashboards with various types of gauges. “It is now clear at first glance for every user how a current value stands in relation to the ideal, minimum or maximum," says List & Label project manager Jochen Bartlau. The new object offers circular and semi-circular gauges similar to speedometers as well as vertical and horizontal scales. Thanks to various design elements such as the dial or needle style, color, signal area, frames and gauge glass, it is possible to assemble different gauges relatively quickly and simply.
The Designer in the List & Label reporting tool is much more intuitive in the new version. The mini toolbars, new input assistants by the end improved selection and alignment will make life easier for end users. Jochen Bartlau says of the new top feature, “It will require one million fewer clicks over the long term and allow routine tasks to be completed in seconds!” It is possible because texts and tabs can be directly formatted with no additional dialog windows needed. The pivot function for crosstabs and continuous zoom additionally improve the Designer quality.
Developers working in the .NET programming language will also profit from simplified database access in the future. “Previously, we always said that we needed very few lines to enhance an application; today we can say that we don't need any lines at all," says Jochen Bartlau, “we call it full speed mode for a productive deployment.”
