Charts in ReportServer

Hi,

as we have received many questions on charting capabilities in ReportServer, pls. note the following:

you can create graphical reports such as bar, pie charts in both pivot reports and mondrian reports. These are highly dynamic reports.

BIRT, Jasper, Excel and Crystal Reports also support charts.

You can see examples of a Saiku / BIRT / Jasper Reports in the online demo: https://reportserver.net/de/demo/

user: demoadmin
password: demoadmin

Saiku and Pivot reports are highly dynamic reports. With just a click, you can create different types of charts for the same report. As an example, check the following representations of the same report:

6.png
7.png
8.png
9.png

Pivot Report charts are analogous.

Here you can see two examples of a bar chart in a BIRT report: http://demo.raas.datenwerke.net/?locale … 5846801178 and http://demo.raas.datenwerke.net/?locale … f0b2c46f52

Here an example of a pie chart in a Jasper report: http://demo.raas.datenwerke.net/?locale … 38a7bc539f

You can create even maps/ almost type of chart report with script reports:

Script reports also allow you to create charts easily. These are highly customizable, as you control the charting libraries directly.
We added a Highchart example (Script report) here:
https://github.com/infofabrik/reportser … ighcharts/

You can find the chart here:
Highchart example

We added a D3 example (Script report) here:
https://github.com/infofabrik/reportser … adialtree/

You can find the chart here:
D3 example

Further, you can also use JXLS Templates to create Excel charts (JXLS Reports or JXLS Template for dynamic list). An example can be found here: https://github.com/infofabrik/reportser … xlsreports (chart.xlsx and chart_result.xlsx). Thanks @Johann for this example:

May I clarify how exactly can this be done and if there is any documentation we can refer to for instructions and/or examples? I've looked at https://reportserver.net/en/guides/admi … S-Reports/ but cannot seem to find a section on charts. Any advise would be appreciated, thank you!

Re: Charts in ReportServer

Hi Johann,

this should work in an analogous way as standard excel charting. Pls check the excel documentation on this and also the jxls documentation: http://jxls.sourceforge.net/

you are of course welcome to contribute with an example in the github if this works for you.

Regards,
Eduardo

Re: Charts in ReportServer

Hi Johann,

many thanks for your contribution. I merged your pull request, made minor modifications (version number, instructions, last-tested version) and pushed the example into the jxls-examples repository: https://github.com/infofabrik/reportser … xlsreports (chart.xlsx and chart_result.xslx). I also created this ticket for next reportserver release:
RS-5902: Add JXLS charting example
for letting the users know about the new charting example.
Again, thanks for creating this example and the pull request.

Regards,
Eduardo
