What is this?

The simplicity of reporting

The Text Control Reporting Framework combines powerful reporting features with an easy-to-use, MS Word compatible word processor. Users can create documents and templates using ordinary Microsoft Word skills.

TX Text Control is completely independent from MS Word or any other third-party application and can be completely integrated into your ASP.NET MVC and Web Forms, Windows Forms and WPF applications.

Text Control's Flow Type Layout Reporting makes it very easy to create reports with typical word processing features such as tables, headers, footers and sections to create reports that flow across pages.

The next thing after banded reports

Conventional banded report designers are complex - Text Control reporting is easy to understand and thanks to WYSIWYG, the template is rendered exactly the same like on paper or in an Adobe PDF. Like in Microsoft Word, users can easily add elements to the report such as tables, pictures, barcodes and headers and footers.
