It’s possible to create reports in InduSoft Web Studio using the reporting capabilities, or third party solutions like Dream Reports, but there are times that it may be necessary to create dynamic reports with images, graphs, or data that you do not wish to display in a typical sheet format. This is especially useful for business intelligence, machine diagnostics, or OEE intelligence that can be either viewed on screen, or quickly printed out at the touch of a button.
One useful way to create dynamic and easily understood reports is to create a ‘Report Screen’ in your application. Develop a screen that includes the elements you want to include, such as context for real-time data, trends, grid objects, or graphs.
Next, set your default printer to any PDF writer. You can then generate a report at any time by using the PrintWindow() function.
