In the demo, what was the name of the mini charts that sat on the item band?

You probably seek the "sparklines" ..

Perfect thanks, I'd been googling starlines and getting very frustrated :)

Very nice demo and great new features, will look to embed this instead of 3.0.x in our next GA.

watching it now!

The HTML paging looks good, i wonder, is there any way to turn it on and off though, i guess if you wanted to print it you could always re-run as pdf.

being released in the next 24hrs eh?

The HTML pagination is not intended to be printed. For that, PDF is the way to go, as HTML is more or less a loose ruleset that describes how content should be layouted, but the actual result is always just an approximation. (And of course, AJAX and printing in browsers does not really work that well.)

Had a couple build issues. Posting today.

true; However look at it from the users point of view, they may well want to print off a quick draft here and there for discussion. Also it's possible that people may have devloped reports and not provided pdf export as an option.

I agree PDF is the way for proper formatted printing.

Just adding my 2p!

There is a way to show reports in their own window (its some Mantle-UI-Magic), and this way, the HTML report can be used as in older releases. However, you get the full report in that case, as pagination requires a controller to tell the engine what page you actually want to see.
