Type: Feature Request
Do not render blank reports in reportBook
We use Telerik's report books extensively - and find that to be a very powerful way to create dynamically generated reports.

The feature request is: if a report's datasource doesn't fetch any rows don't add a blank page to the report book.

Hello PrimePay,

Unfortunately, I cannot name the exact date when the task will be in development. All tasks are sorted based on multiple criteria such as demand, severity, available and required resources etc.
Alternatively, you can follow the feature request (by voting for it) to check when the status changed to 'In Development' and also our release history page for release notes.

Until the request is implemented, we cannot provide an out-of-the-box way to hide the empty report in the report book. The workaround is not to add the report to the report book, but we understand this is not trivial, since the report data is not available at that point and you will need to retrieve it and filter it based on some parameters.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused. I hope that this would help.

Best Regards,
Progress Telerik

Do we know when this feature will be implemented? or at least a work around for it. For instance, is there anyway to to know or invoke in  advance the reports datasources so we can decide whether include them or not in the reportbook.
