New Ranet HTML Pivot Table 5.7.150 is released and available for download.
For this version, we focused on improving several functional areas of the tool, such as:
- More intuitive design;
- More options to manipulate (sort, filter, etc.) data in the pivot table;
- Better data visualization opportunities;
- Simplifying Ranet integration into other applications, and providing better tools for developers.
Here is the list of the main new features that we have introduced in this build.
Managing Multi-Page Reports
New Ranet version provides a better experience for users working with multi-page reports. The bottom toolbar contains additional information and a menu to customize the pages and quickly switch between them.
Working with Extensions
Starting from version 5.7.150, users can apply sorting to the pivot table data using the context menu. The data in rows and columns can be sorted in descending or ascending order by property (caption, key) or context (using Measure).

Cell Context Menu
We have implemented a cell context menu allowing users to copy cells to the clipboard, view cell properties, apply DrillThrough operation, create a filter axis and filter the data in the pivot table based on the selected rows and columns.
DrillThrough lets users search for and retrieve the data used to calculate the value of the cell to which it is applied. The result of the DrillThrough shows the cell’s value, its coordinates, and the table with detailed data. The result of the operation can be exported to Excel.

Member Choice Filter
Ranet HTML Pivot Table has a new Member Choice filter, where users can select the cube members they want to see in the pivot table. The filter is applied to levels and has options to search members (in text and values) and view member properties.

We have added new options to export/import reports for end users.
Ranet now allows exporting saved reports to a URL. The URL is generated automatically and can later be used to open the saved report in the browser.
Users can also save reports on their computers as XML files, and open locally stored reports via the Saves As… – Import command.
Users now have an option to use several charts (a table of charts) to visualize the data in the pivot table. The table view, i.e. the number of charts in rows and columns, is customizable. Users can create custom series or use auto-generated ones.
Users can now visualize their pivot table data on pie charts. For this type of extension, the data is shown on several charts (a table of charts) by default. Users can create custom series.
Pivot Table Actions in Charts
Pivot table charts now support several basic pivot table actions, such as Drill Down, Drill Down by…, and Drill Down with the parent.
We have added XML comments to the frontend (Angular, JS) and server side code. The comments provide descriptions for classes and other objects and are aimed at helping developers that integrate Ranet pivot table for HTML into other solutions.
Server logic virtual methods help developers provide a more seamless integration of Ranet pivot table into other applications.
