When generating a report with multiple tables provide the ability to send these tables to different workbook tabs when exporting to Excel
It would be great if you could introduce the ability to create custom reusable color palettes in Telerik Report Designer, so I don't have to declare the same set of colors for each chart I need them.
If you have a lot of graphs in your report then it is more convenient to change the color palette one place.
Asking to enable typing into the font combo box in standalone Telerik Report Designer.
The concept would be to click on the font drop down and just start to type the name of the font and have the list shift to that position for you.
If you do a Excel export, it renders the headers value, which we set with an expression (customer specific localised text), but as CSV the header names/IDs are used. It would be nice to have a 'Export Settings' category on the page properties, see attachment for example. Also shows another useful feature of disabling export option easily per report.
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.
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.
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.
