New Flexmonster 2.0: Comparing Flash/Flex and HTML5/JS Versions

roman posted on January 26th, 2014
PLEASE NOTE: As soon as we update the Component with new features every new week the information might be outdated, please check our latest news.

When developing HTML5/JS version of Flexmonster Pivot Table & Charts component our team aimed to minimizing its difference comparing with Flash/Flex one. So that migration process was maximum simple and easy first issue to resolve is report format. Reports have same format for both versions. This means report saved with Flash/Flex version can be opened in HTML5/JS version and vice versa. Both versions have the same API and both of them can be embedded using flexmonster.js file.

Most part of all features implemented for Flash/Flex version of Flexmonster are available in HTML5/JS version:

  • Datasources (CSV/OCSV, Mondrian, MS Analysis Services, traditional databases)
  • Charts (all types)
  • Conditional formatting
  • Export (to PDF, CSV, HTML, PNG, Excel)

CSS styling can be implemented for HTML5/JS version but cannot be reused for Flash/Flex version and vice versa.

The following features are not included in Flexmonster 2.0 HTML5/JS release, however they are planned to be developed within next releases:

  • Connecting to icCube, SAP, ActivePivot
  • Printing
  • Zooming
