We’ll likely add a WPF hosted flavor of the WinForms control in LL22 that has the identical interface codewise. That way, you’ll get all the features by simply replacing one WPF control with another.
We’ve investigated a native EMF rendering in WPF and also evaluated a couple of libraries that do EMF <-> XAML translations. However, none of these approaches really did the job well enough.
I figure adding WinForms assemblies is not the most beautiful solution but hope the features you get this way will compensate for that:
- drilldown support
- incremental preview
- interactive reporting (sorting, expandable regions)
- report parameter support
- index, reverse side, table of contents
