Make Visual Studio designer work with .NET Core (a.k.a. SDK-style) projects

At the moment it's only possible to have your reports in old-fashioned projects.

It should be possible to add/design reports to SDK-style projects. That should work no matter what target framework is (.NET Core, .NET Standard or .NET Framework).

We are keeping a close eye to the efforts of the .NET team that works on the Windows Forms designer on .NET Core. Yesterday they've introduced a preview version of the designer - it looks promising, but there are still lots of missing features. For example, containers, resources and component tray are not yet supported, and they are mandatory for our reports designer. We are sure that the subsequent versions of .NET Core Windows Forms designer will add the missing features, but its current state is just not fit for our needs. Please rest assured that we understand how important this designer is for our clients and as long as it is released with all the necessary components, we will do our best to include it in the next version of Telerik Reporting.

Is there any update on this issue? .NET Core 3.0 is already out, but we still cannot switch because our reports require .NET Framework 4.7.2... This does not make any sense, to be honest. I know, I know, we can containerize report projects and so on. But that is too much work just to make Telerik Designer happy.

Hello Dmytro,

Currently, the .NET Core frameworks do not support the design time components we need for our Visual Studio Report Designer. Without these components we cannot provide a quality design-time experience. We believe that VS team will gradually fill the gaps between the .NET Framework and the .NET Core, publishing more and more designer classes. As soon as the necessary components become available we will make sure our designer is working when hosted in .NET Core and  .NET Standard projects.
