Much like the way Excel has the ability to utilize VBA functions. it would be usefull and more conventient for developer if they could include custom functionality/functions in a report rather than use an external assembly. The steps involved to include/use an external assembly is daunting at best and not at all straight forward.
Something like you right click the report and one of the menu options is "Add Custom Function". Or in the expressions dialog box have an option to create/add a custom function.
You get the point. I'm sure your team of developers could come up with something.
Please consider adding an RTF Text Box control to your report toolbar. Crystal reports has this ability which we've used on many of our reports. Currently the only work around for changing the RTF data to something that Telerik Reports will print cleanly, is to create a user defined custom function.
I have a requirement for my report book to feature a title page and *THEN* a table of contents for the report book, followed by the report book's content. Currently, the TOC for a report book can only go at the beginning or the end of the book. My requirement required the ability to specify the TOC position more generally. Here are two possible approaches: 1. Implement the requirement as it is stated by allowing the report book's TOC to be positioned after such and such a report - the nth, or some other means of identification. 2. Honour the TOC for a report book that is nested inside another. I created a 'sub book' with the TOC as its first page and then added this an outer book. Unfortunately, the inner book's TOC was not honoured and the report was skipped. To my mind, the second suggestion above feels easier to implement (but I am guessing, of course). It certainly would allow just about any combination.
I am no longer able to build my reporting project on TFS on line, (I used to be able to) I get the build error

Please help this is urgent .
First, we need the ability to have the controls in a Page Header Band to Grow/Shrink based on their contents. Second, the Page Header Band also needs the ability to Grow/Shrink based the first Condition and any other Conditional Formatting settings of controls with in that band. This is request becuase of the design of the Report Header Band and how it is designed for Multi Column Reports. The Report Header Band does all what I am asking for, however, in a Multi Column Report, it's only the size of the column width, which is a problem for some of our reports. We need it to be the entire page width. Some suggests to create PAGE BOOKS seems a bit complicated to do for such a simple request. I have been using different report writes in my 25+ years of programming, and Telerik Reports is the first one that I have used, that has these limitations..
Add progress bar that indicates when the report would be fully rendered.
After setting the Margins under the Page Settings, the Width should be automatically set. The Width should be the Paper Width with the Left and Right Margins subtracted. What happens when this 'formula' is not used, which one takes precedence? It would also be nice to display the Height as a read only property.
Support generating reports on .NET Core running on a non-Windows platform, esp. macOS or Linux-like OS.
Please add full support for asp.net Core. What you currently have is not nearly complete. We need to be able to use the report designer and add reports in a .net core project and we need to be able to use reports that have objectdatasources. Currently object datasource does not work with .net core dll's.
Need to support installing and running reporting server restful API from within linux.
Ability to localize Standalone Report Designer created reports without the need of using custom functions.
All Telerik Reporting assemblies to be distributed via Nuget packages, in order to ease deploying a solution that uses Telerik Reporting and to share the solution with other developers. Note: Without having Telerik Reporting installed on the machine, there will be no design-time support (Upgrade and other wizards, VS Report Designer, etc.). The purpose of the packages is only deployment.
I had a very challenging time getting Telerik Reports to work with my business objects. I'm not the only one -- see this thread: http://www.telerik.com/forums/how-to-use-object-data-source-in-report-designer This could be improved by: 1. Don't make users manually edit <Telerik.Reporting>. Create a UI in the designer where DLL's can be manually selected. 2. If there are errors loading the DLL's in <Telerik.Reporting>, tell the user, rather than failing silently, which is the current behavior. Importing reports from DLL's has the same silent-failure behavior: if there's something not quite right about the DLL's (wrong architecture setting, for example), you just see "no reports to import" rather than the actual error (bad file format, or whatever). I think a little work on the user experience around custom business objects would make new users who want to use the stand alone report designer in this way much happier. I was really surprised and frustrated that a modern product would fail like this with no exposed error messages.
Some reports contain a lot of detail (audit reports, sales reports). Users need to quickly find transaction numbers, etc. when balancing financials.
