When opening a data source by the wizard and go through it then save (even without any modification), the provider property will be cleared.

Workaround: Re-set the 'Provider name' again upon closing the wizard, by the properties window.

We use Telerik reports for many different things.  We generate reports, letters, mailings, excel documents and forms or applications.  Our applications can either be blank or pre-filled or completely filled with information from the user.  Now I realize that you can say that all of these are forms of reports, but I would submit that is only partly correct.  I tell people that Telerik reports is a way for me to produce output that can be electronically distributed or printed.  While that is a definition of a report, I think it can go a bit further.

If you think about PDF forms and what they are, they are a report that allows the user to add additional information and send back to the customer.  I do realize that some features of PDF forms allow for scripting that can automatically submit, and there is a lot of other capabilities that moves PDF forms outside the realm of basic report generation. That being said, the ability to set a parameter in a report whereas the fields are replaced with basic text input PDF fields would be a huge advantage for Telerik.  I could see them opening up the forms generation market for this product.

While I have no input into your roadmap and, as a former Product Architect for a software development firm, I fully understand scope creep and keeping product focus, I would love to see:
1) a parameter export to PDF that converts the fields (everything that has a Fields.XXXX keyword somewhere in the value property) to PDF form text fields without adding data.  I would set the length the same way you set the horizontal length of the field on the report.
2) a parameter on a field item that says this field cannot be converted into a form field and must have data.
3) a parameter on reports indicating that when generating PDF form fields, that X number of rows are generated for the detail section.
4) if a field value is too complex or if the report is too complex, I would just fail over to a blank value.
I realize there are a lot of capabilities in PDF forms, but I tried to keep my wish list confined to the basics that would allow for easy additions to support advanced capabilities post report generation.

All this being said, I have communicated to my customers that Telerik is not going to support PDF form fields and we have an upcoming meeting to discuss this requirement.  I have a lot of resources, time and money invested in the development of Telerik reports and it is a concern that I may have to remove Telerik reports from our solutions because of a need to support this PDF capability.  We have reports on multiple different platforms and I feel that Telerik Reports is one of the best in terms of use on many different styles of applications. But since I am a firm believer in using as few technology vendors as possible (and only want a single reporting solution), I am concerned about having to re-architect our solution reporting infrastructure to remove Telerik reports.

In the attached photo, I combined the first 2 pages of the PDF I get when I export the reports as a PDF (there were 198 pages in total). The second page is the continuation of the bar chart, as the bars expand. This is not readable or insightful to a user who wants to view the report, as he/she can not see any of the labeling of the X or Y axis on the second page. I would like to see labeling of both the X and Y axis on each page, so that the reports are easier to read. The same applies for graphs, columns, and table reports as well.

When using multi-child select statement like the below:

SELECT ORG, C1, C2, ... FROM (
   (SELECT X FROM Y WHERE Z1 = xxx AND Z2 = :param1 AND DATE BETWEEN :param2 AND :param3) C1,
   (SELECT X FROM Y WHERE Z1 = yyy AND Z2 = :param1 AND DATE BETWEEN :param2 AND :param3) C2,
   ...
)
Then binding with report parameter will be like:
param1 = rpt_param1
param2 = rpt_param2
param3 = rpt_param3

The an error occurred while excuting the query in the datasource wizard.
Also, some time the wizard accepts the query but the preview mode will display the same error.
The error is "ORA-01008 : Not all variables bound"

______________________________________
Workaround: Don't use the same query parameter in more than one child select statement. Create new datasource parameters per each select statement; then bind them all to the same report parameter. 

SELECT ORG, C1, C2, ... FROM (
   (SELECT X FROM Y WHERE Z1 = xxx AND Z2 = :param11 AND DATE BETWEEN :param12 AND :param13) C1,
   (SELECT X FROM Y WHERE Z1 = yyy AND Z2 = :param21 AND DATE BETWEEN :param22 AND :param23) C2,
   ...
)
Then binding with report parameter will be like:
param11 = rpt_param1
param21 = rpt_param1
param12 = rpt_param2
param22 = rpt_param2
param13 = rpt_param3
param23 = rpt_param3

WPF can display very complex text, like mathematical function, or create intricate image.
Such feature is missing in Reporting.
A function should exist in Reporting to render a WPF control as image in report for such case (using RenderTargetBitmap).

The Reporting Graph item support now only one data source, unlike RadChartView.
When displaying different collection, we must for the moment put everything in one collection, and group/filter in Graph, because of this limitation.

I would like to be able to write an expression that will call a user function when the ItemDataBound event fires for the report.  This would allow me to wire up the custom functionality that we have built so that the user can see the result from the preview in the designer.  Currently the user has to go to a preview window in our application to see the result but if I had a way to wire the ItemDataBound event for the report then I could make it possible to see the result without leaving the designer.  

I thought that if you made this possible for the report it probably would make sense to enable it for all controls since they all have the the ItemDataBinding and ItemDataBound events.  In my case I don't know how I could implement this any other way because it needs to run after the binding has completed for the entire report.

Telerik Reporting Online Examples have lots of examples of reports, but no examples of how to call these reports!   I'd like to see examples of calling a report from a button on a page, or calling a report by clicking on a button in a radgrid row, and of course passing parameters from said pages or grids.

Hi Telerik!
I spent lots of time investigating the following situation.
For some reason the editor that I used to modify Telerik.ReportDesigner.exe.config file switched xml elements names to lowercase.
ReportDesigner was not started at all in that case. Even no error message was shown.
I had to explore system events logs and found that ReportDesigner.exe throwed an System.IO.FileLoadException.
But still with no details.
Only after hours of exploring I found the problem with xml-element names and fixed it.
I think if you add .config file validation with user-friendly messages during ReportDesigner starting it will help.

Running the report book demo in Chrome v "34.0.1847.116 m" under Windows 8 crashes the Silverlight plugin. This does however not happen under I.E 11.
