We are happy to announce that we have released KoolReport core version 4.5.1 with new features. The KoolReport Pro also reaches same version number 4.5.1 with the new core update and the upgrade of individual packages such as Excel, Inputs, D3, ChartJs.
KoolReport's class is provided with new
getXml() method to get the representation of your report in
xml format. The xml contains both data and meta data of all report's datastores.
In this version, we continue to enrich methods of datastore. DataStore has a new method called
distinct(). As the name suggested, distinct method will have you to get a list of unrepeated values from a column. Furthermore, Datastore is provided with new
toJson() methods to get array and JSON. This could be useful if you need result in array form for further processing or JSON format to be returned in your REST API.
We have added new DataSource called
ExistedPdoDataSource to handle source in case you only have the PDO object but connection settings. So you only need to send your existed PDO object as parameter to your report and provide it with
JsonSpread is a new processed added to KoolReport in order to spread JSON data into column in data stream. By doing so, we are able to apply other KoolReport's processes to further process the JSON data.
Support CI/CD process
Since the popularity of CI/CD process, KoolReport library now fully support this new type of software integration and delivery processes. We understand the 1 hour token availability causes trouble for the automation delivery so we have increases the life time of token to maximum. In particular, the token will last until your subscription of KoolReport Pro is ended. If you have purchase the Perpetual Usage, the token expiration will be set the
2100-01-01 which is virtually life-time or never expired.
Support load balancing
If you are using load balancing with multiple servers containing app (with KoolReport integrated), the generated resource folders now have same name in all servers. So virtually, the client-side will be able to receive resource files regardless of servers it connects to.
D3Chart Client Events
D3 chart has been upgraded with one of the most crucial features: client events. This is the missing part in
D3 first version. Now all charts support
itemSelect event which help you to track the click of user to item on the charts. Now D3 is able to work with DrillDown package to provide interactive drill down report.
DrillDown supports D3
Missing client events hindered the collaboration of DrillDown package with D3 chart. But not anymore, since the
D3 package has supported the client events, the
DrillDown package also support generate D3 Chart. By specifying the D3 chart as drilldown widgets, the DrillDown will bind itself to D3
itemSelect to provide interactive report.
We have fixed the PieChart display in Microsoft Excel and a minor bugs happened when data is missing.
We have upgraded the core of ChartJS to latest version of 2.9.x. With this new upgrade, some of known issues has been addressed. Furthermore, we have provided new
plugins property which allows you to use most popular plugins for ChartJS like
stacked100 and others.
Due to the upgrade of FontAwesome library in previous KoolReport's version, some of the icons have not been displayed correctly. This issue has been addressed in this new version of Inputs package.
New Yii2 Package
In this release, we roll out new package
koolreport\yii2. As the name suggested,
yii2 package will facilitate the integration of KoolReport with Yii2, one of the most used frameworks in PHP. Similar to other integration packages that we have created before like
yii2 package will help to auto configure report's assets settings and allow report to access to default database connection setup within Yii2.
The version 4.5.x added new features and empowered reporting capability to KoolReport. This upgrade is backward compatible with old 4.x versions so feel free to upgrade. If you need have any question about this new release, do not hesitate to let us know.

Now all our packages both free and paid can be installed through

The core itself has been improved so much from datasources to data processes and the visualization. Those existed bugs from version 3.x has been solved completely in this version.
We added a new widget added called
Card to the core. The
Card allows us to show the important KPI value in our report. If you aim at constructing a dashboard, Card widget is very useful.

We are very happy to let you know that KoolReport 2.43.0 has been released. We continue to make KoolReport the great reporting framework.
It seems KoolReport core is quite stable now. Only a small change in this version compared to the previous one is the improvement for Google Chart when dealing with numeric column in string form. We were reported by one of our customers a mysterious error that broke his chart. Further investigation leaded us to the root cause. One of his column is supposed to be numeric type but stored in string form so Google Chart ran into trouble. In this version, if a column is specified type as number, we will enforce the rule by converting the value of that column to number.
Beside the new version of core, we released new package version for QueryBuilder, DataGrid, Pivot and Excel.
QueryBuilder 1.4.0 has been fixed the WHERE statement when dealing with boolean type. In addition, we fixed the issue of wrong quoting name of table and column. Now the
table.columnName will be generated correctly as
'table'.'columnName' in SQL statement.
DataGrid 1.2.0 contains improvement for
cssClass property to add custom css classes for th, tr, td, tf. We also add the
formatValue property to allow us to custom the display of column value.
Pivot 4.0.0 has biggest improvement for css. Now we can customize look n feel by overwriting its default css classes. Beside that, we added new command
expand() at client-side to expand any level we want.
Excel 1.2.0 has been added new properties
sheetIndex in ExcelDataSource to let us specify exactly what sheet of excel we want to load. This will help us to avoid problem of
Memory Limit Exceeded if we have large Excel file.
Together with above releases of new core and extended packages, we released KoolReport Pro 2.43.0 containing all recent updates. If you own KoolReport Pro license, you may update now.

We have released new version KoolReport 2.42.0 with some minor fixes. You may download and upgrade now!
PHP 5.4 Compatibility
In the last release KoolReport 2.41.3, we have used the class constant
::class to get the full class name of a class. However this feature is available in PHP >= 5.5. Those who uses PHP 5.4 will get errors.
With the promise to support PHP >= 5.4, we have replaced those class constants with strings containing real class names. This will help to solve the issues.
We would like to thank bysystem to let us know this issue.
We have fixed an issue of
PostGreSQL when we try to set
charset. Thanks Daniel Amamoo-Otchere for telling us this issue.
The new version 2.42.0 contains some minor fixes for KoolReport. For your information, we also release KoolReport Pro 2.42.0 containing above updates and new release of QueryBuilder 1.2.0.
Thank you very much!
