Hi Manvi,
 
Thank you for writing to us.
 

  1. We would like to confirm that Flexmonster supports the Azure SQL connection – this connection utilizes the recently released Flexmonster Data Server – a server-side utility that implements our custom data source API, which allows you to load large data sets to Flexmonster quickly & easily.

    Feel free to check out the following documentation page going into more detail on this matter: https://www.flexmonster.com/doc/connect-to-relational-database/

    Speaking of integration with Angular, it is supported in Flexmonster as well. It is quite straightforward and achievable with several simple steps. For more details & demonstrative samples check out the corresponding doc page: https://www.flexmonster.com/doc/integration-with-angular/

  2. Currently, we are not able to provide you with more details on Azure Web Roles. Kindly note that Flexmonster Data Server can be launched as an .exe file or be referred to as a DLL. Could you please let us know if you need any specific details?

 
Please let us know if this helps.
 
Best regards,
Mykhailo

I already have a Web API in .Net Core. Can I integrate flexmonster server with my existing Web API as DLL? I do not need a separate application to run the flexmonster server.

Hi Manvi,
 
Thank you for your fast response!
 
Yes, as we’ve mentioned in our previous response, the Flexmonster Data Server can be embedded into your application as a DLL – you won’t have to run it separately as an .exe file.
 
The DLL itself is easily installed with the NuGet package manager. Feel free to check out the following page for more details on embedding the Data Server as a DLL: https://www.flexmonster.com/doc/referring-data-server-as-dll/
 
Also, the following GitHub repository contains a sample which you might find helpful: https://github.com/flexmonster/flexmonster-data-server-dll
 
We hope this helps!

Hello,
Flexmonster looks good to me. But I have a concern. My requirement is to export the tables as well as charts into PDF and by looking at your previous response it doesn’t seem to be feasible.

Hi Manvi,
 
Thank you for your reply.
 
Please note that with the exportTo() Flexmonster API call the grid/chart view can be exported to multiple different formats, including PDF. For PDF export you can also specify the page format, orientation custom headers/footers, etc.
 
More info on this here: https://www.flexmonster.com/doc/export-and-print/
 
We hope this helps.
 
Kind regards,
Mykhailo
