Feature Request - Show email sent / error notification using the report viewers built-in notification system.
It would be nice to have an option to have a message shown when the email with the report is sent or if there was an error sending.
Right now when you hit email and send the user does not know if it was successful or not. Being async is nice but I have noticed that it could take a few seconds to complete and if the user navigates away from the report viewer during this time the report has the possibility of not sending. Either way right now the user has no definitive method of knowing if the email was sent or not.
It would be extremely useful to have a Crosstab export the entire hierarchy as groups in Excel. SQL Reporting Services does this when exporting a report created there. I realize that this would mean generating the entire dataset prior to the export in order to expand all the data, but as I said, SSRS does this without a noticeable performance delay.
I am using the standalone report designer with an ObjectDataSource that returns ExpandoObject. I did create some new ExpandoObject objects and set property values as suggested in https://www.telerik.com/support/kb/reporting/details/how-to-use-objectdatasource-with-expandoobject. The problem I have that the dynamic properties of ExpandoObject are now showing in the data explorer.

Telerik saving to PDF issue intermittently. The issue is that the graph gets skewed and then won’t open in Acrobat once the report is exported.
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.
It would be very helpful for us people that have been using Telerik Reporting in Silverlight (or WPF) applications to have access to a Report Viewer for Windows Store Apps (XAML). The future of Silverlight is unclear at least and there are many Line Of Business Applications currently running under Silverlight and I know of many developers that are looking to port their LOB apps to Windows Store Apps (or Universal Apps). The current HTML5 Report Viewer does not provide printing when it is implemented in browser window in Windows Store Apps so we cannot really offer this option to our customers.
Why is it that the telerik report designer is locked down and cannot be used as a set of controls in a custom application as any other telerik control. We would like to use the report designer controls in an application we make to give it our look and feel and so we can give it the functionality we require. Why limit your customers by locking down your report designer. One of the great things about telerik is a great set of products and customer support. If we had a way to get at the Telerik.ReportDesigner.Core.dll we can figure our where the controls are and display them in our app. I don't understand the marketing behind the locked down report designer. How does it benefit your customers? You can still have a locked down designer for those customers that don't want to customize it. Providing access to Telerik.Reporting.Core.dll will give your customers the ability to customize the report designer to their needs. Telerik sells controls that customers use to make applications that they sell, so whats the difference with the designer?
The Labels to be displayed on a Numerical Scale Axis are currently set automatically. The user can control the scale range via Axis Scale Minimum and Maximum properties. The user can control also the Label Step. However, the exact Axis Labels to be shown are calculated automatically and cannot be controlled directly by the user. For example the user cannot force the Axis Labels to start from the Minimum value.
