Uniconta’s Report Generator is a standard generator of various reports created by the company, Devexpress. This report generator has now been integrated into the Uniconta Windows client.
The data for the report generator is selected from the Uniconta API, which is part of the Uniconta client, and it is then sent to the report engine. The Devexpress report engine formats the report and sends it on to the user’s screen or to a printer.
Uniconta has developed a wizard so that our users can easily create a new report. Once the report is created using the wizard, our users can edit it using the tools provided in the report designer. During the design phase, the report can be previewed and when it is complete, it can be saved.
The report can be edited and saved again at any time and can be run directly from the report designer. The Uniconta Menu Designer can also be used to integrate a report into the menu tree in the navigation panel. This makes it easy for users in the company to retrieve the report and make use of it.

Locating Report Controls
This page describes the various location controls within the report designer. This ensures that these controls do not overlap with other controls.
This document helps users write their ‘events’. Events are written in c# script code. Upon designing and running, these events are fired, and the script is executed. The article explains how most of the events are used in the visual studio. These events can also be displayed when the Uniconta report designer is running.
Parameters in Report
