Release notes

Version 2.7.2 / March 25, 2019

NEW Resizing columns and rows is now supported for touch devices.

NEW Localization files were updated to support new labels.

NEW A new option strictDataTypes was added to the dataSource section of the report. If this option is turned on the component treats numeric values (or any other marked as a measure) only as measures and does not allow to use them as hierarchies. Therefore, the component can skip a big part of a data analysis process and save valuable time.

NEW Now the timePattern option supports the HHH pattern to display time data where the number of hours is greater than 24.

NEW Now timePattern is used to format time values on charts as well as on the grid.

NEW A negativeCurrencyFormat parameter is added to the list of number format parameters. It allows setting the following negative number formats: "-$1", "-1$", "$-1", "$1-", "1-$", "1$-", "($1)", "(1$)".

NEW A positiveCurrencyFormat parameter is added to the list of number format parameters. It allows setting the following number formats: "$1", "1$".
