Among the features supported by MindFusion.Reporting for WinForms are barcode items.

MindFusion.Reporting for WinForms offers different ways to customize your report. In this sample we use custom drawing on the Canvas report item. The RenderContents event is handled and each row on the last column of report data shows a red-orange mark to indicate visually its value compared to the total of all values in the category. By implementing this scenario in your WinForms application the ways to customize the appearance of your report are practically endless.
Reporting for WinForms presents you with numerous ways to export your report. You can choose among a PDF document, HTML web page, image or Excel spreadsheet.
