.NET Standalone Report Designer cannot edit SubReport item ReportSource property

I noticed that using the Standalone Report Designer for .NET, I can't open the "ReportSource" dialog for a SubReport. The property cannot be edited from the Properties tab either.

Instead, when using the Standalone Report Designer for .NET Framework everything works fine.

Hello Jeffrey,

We have scheduled a fix for this issue with the R1 SP1 2023 scheduled for later this month.

In the meantime, the easier workaround is to use the .NET Framework Standalone Report Designer to edit the SubReports. It can be started from the following path if the product was installed with the default settings:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Telerik Reporting <Release>\Report Designer

Still, if you wish to use code to do this instead, you would need to unpackage/deserialize the main TRDP/TRDX report in order to be able to edit it, then you may see the example from the Setting the SubReport ReportSource article.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you for using Telerik Reporting!

Is there a work around this this?


Can we connect the subreport parameter to the main report parameter within code, without having to define the whole report in code?
