Developing reports from scratch in C# can be difficult and you do not always get the results that you are looking for. I have been using List & Label for over 3 Years now and the features supplied are rich and extensive and improving all the time. List & Label made it easy for me to get my product out to my customers with well-presented reporting. I have been more than satisfied with the clarity and ease of use.

We looked for a component that could handle many pages with rich text and after testing the performance of this with combit List & Label, it was an easy choice. We are very satisfied with it. Currently the PDF output is the most used option.

List & Label is the perfect tool to generate high quality documents. Our software provides the data and end users can design the layout. Throughout the years we saw that List & Label continuously delivers stable new releases with outstanding help for the developer.

List & Label has been employed by the Swiss National Science Foundation for around 4 years to generate PDF documents in large numbers asynchronously as well as synchronously. It runs very stably and reliably.  Simply superb!

We have been working intensively with your product in our database course for two years now – the educational version of List & Label you kindly provided. We are very satisfied with the software. Students studying IT-related subjects generally dealt with List & Label well; they progressed rapidly right from the start, and were therefore motivated to engage with the topic in greater depth.

Before List & Label, I used to employ Crystal Reports. This tool had several weaknesses in that the print engine had problems with page breaks, and if I remember correctly, there was no possibility of distributing the designer royalty-free. In addition, the form design was very cumbersome in comparison with List & Label.

I decided on List & Label because, in my opinion, it is the only tool with which the user can easily design reports. Equally crucial was the simple programming of the module. List & Label simply had no serious competitor.

August 2013

    5 /5

List & Label was easy to integrate into our software product, and is the key component for label printing. Creating and printing labels for end products is essential. We integrated these features into the latest release of our software without difficulty using List & Label. List & Label now performs all core functionality for label printing.

Our customers are delighted that we have provided a proven, sophisticated and dynamic reporting tool, which can be operated simply and intuitively.

We tested List & Label with our own software product (C#/WPF/Entity Framework 4.0). I am really delighted about how simple it was. I would never have thought that WDF and Entity Framework were so well supported. It was almost completely intuitive. The product truly met the expectations promised in advertising.

Many thanks for your patience and dedication! We wouldn't have dreamed of such excellent service from our previous vendor, which once made an excellent report writer. They had a pure lack of customer service and support. This shows me once again that I am in very good hands with combit and the List & Label report generator – a highly effective development tool.

We have been using List & Label for 15 years. Flexibility and stability are the main reasons we keep using this product in our labeling and datasheet applications, which use VFP. Recently, we also used List & Label for our latest web application based on .NET. Functionality has been continously added and improved over the years, making this developer tool one of the best of its kind.
