Valentina Release 13.5 Notes

Release 13.5.0


Valentina Reports

  • [New] Reports for MongoDB. The source query can be defined in one of the following forms (controlled by the Language option of the query):
    • JSON – using commands which return a result set, e.g. { “find”:“collection_name” }
             "find": "test"
    • JavaScript – retrieve data using JavaScript code. This approach is analogous to JavaScript-based queries for SQL data sources; only the API differs.
  • [New] Source query can be defined using JavaScript code. This allows JavaScript to build a set of data and produce a report. To do it, switch the Language option of the query to JavaScript. The code should return data in one of the following forms:
    • Array of objects where each object represents a row:
      let data = [ { "Column1": "Value11", "Column2": "Value21" },{ "Column1": "Value12", "Column2": "Value22" } ];
    • Single object, just one row:
       let data = { "Column1": "Value11", "Column2": "Value2" };
    • Cursor returned by the datasource after execution of an arbitrary query:
       let data = datasource.sqlSelect("SELECT 1 AS Column1, 2 AS Column2, 3 AS Column3");


  • [New] Content of text controls (text field, expression field, label) can be printed on multiple pages if it doesn't fit on one page. This behavior is controlled by the following options of the spllit_type property:
    • Allow Split By Line – Long text can be split after any line of the text.
    • Allow Split By Paragraph – Long text can be split after the new line character.
  • [Wiki] Executing MongoDB Commands in the Valentina Studio in JSON and JavaScript forms.
  • [Wiki] MongoDB extension of Valentina Reports JavaScript API. New API can be used in scripts and JavaScript-based source queries.
  • [Wiki] Step-by-step tutorial describing the creation of the simplest report based on data coming from MongoDB datasource.
