Allow column reordering in designer
In the standalone designer, it would be helpful if you could drag and drop the column headers to reorder.  At present you have to add a new column and delete the old one, remembering to copy all properties.

Hi Corey,

Yes, we do plan to eventually include the column reordering for the web report designer too but we still have not had planning for this so we cannot say whether this would be implemented for every designer since day one or will be implemented for the web designer at a later time.

However, we are not sure about the other specification, regarding reordering columns based on a user custom configuration, could you please elaborate further on how you would imagine this to work?

We look forward to your response.

Regards,
Dimitar

Hi Dimitar - great to see this is has been approved as valid!

With this, would the reordering capabilities be added to the Web Viewer also? (through custom resolver)

We would like to be able to programmatically reorder columns based on the user's custom configuration when viewing a report.

 

Kind Regards,
Corey

6 years since this feature was requested and I believe it is an important one. Our team are tasked with improving the reporting within our application, this will require non-technical individuals to have a small amount of editing capabilities, including column reordering.

I'd like to see this feature on a road-map so we do not need to look into alternative reporting solutions - provided this feature is planned at some stage.

We may have to find another reporting solution if they cant add this capability.

I would be very happy for any improvement beyond deleting and re-inserting columns. I'm happy to cut and paste code. I don't see the steps Jason referred to, but I haven't found any such steps in a few minutes of searching. I found this page from the thread here: https://www.telerik.com/forums/can't-figure-out-how-to-select-column-order#itgSy8pOCEG5s3QOk5H88w

This is really needed.   We're evaluating report systems and this is a nasty strike against Telerik.

Even if drag/drop is a tricky gesture to capture well, *any* way to reorder columns without the inconvenient and prone-to-error list of steps Scott points out would be really helpful.

Update 2 years later: no idea what I referring to by Scott's steps - sorry for my orphaned reference there -- maybe this thread was modified since I originally commented.
