Coming from having developed many SSRS reports one thing I think telerik is missing is a nicer visualisation of row and column grouping in a table. SSRS does this really well as shown in the screenshot below where we can easily see which rows belong to the detail and 2 other groups.

I think this would be a very useful addition to the telerik designers!

including Pivot etc.

In the non-native angular report viewer we were using a customized template to change the order of the buttons and also to add custom buttons. We want to migrate to the Native Angular Report viewer but it lacks toolbar customization options. We need to be able to change the order and hide existing toolbar functions. Also we need the ability to define custom buttons with custom logic that executes when the button is pressed. 

I've tried to create a sub-class of the ReportingAngularViewerComponent and define a custom template for the toolbar, but the problem is that some of the core toolbar buttons (like zoom and pager) use custom local Telerik components that aren't exported from the ReportingAngularViewerModule, so I can't use those directly. 

It would be great if you can export all components used in the ReportingAngularViewerModule or provide an alternative way to customize the toolbar (may be similar to how you allow customization of the toolbar for the Editor control where users can define what toolbar commands are available, order them as they like and also define custom commands)

The current htmltextbox on the telerik reporter designer does not support html tags for <table>

There is a work around which creates the html text to an image but the quality is not great but more importantly the word wrap functionality is lost.

As an implementer, I sometimes need to trigger the Web Report Designer's commands programmatically. For example, saving the report definition when an external button is clicked.

Exposing an API for invoking the designer's commands would be of great help in implementing such functionality.

It would be great if the expressions were validated before leaving the expression editor rather than only finding out I missed a bracket ')' when running the report.

Currently the Webdesigner makes up to 6(?) and the Standalone Designer as much as it needs without(?) limit.

Especially the latter case can quickly lead to a lot of connections, saturating the max allowed connections of a sql server, which also leads to other services depending on a sql server connection to fail.

As far as I've seen, this only happens with Charts in Design mode.

So there are multiple ways to handle this:

  • Being able to specify the max concurrent connections in the designer
  • Make the usage of the DataSource more efficient by only loading the data once (like in the report viewer)
  • Being able to turn off the chart preview in the Designer (By configuration, not with a user settable option)

See the attached report for a simple example:

It contains a single Datasource, which is a postgres query which simply waits 10s before returning the result.
After updating the DataSource to something which works for you and saving, simply reopen the report and see how many connections are opened in parallel.

With kind regards

I would like to formally request the ability to "sign" in some fashion a trdp/trdx file.  Note that if only the new file format is supported then that would be acceptable.

Basically, I would like to apply some signature that we could, if we so chose, read from the report file to verify that it was us that created or last modified the file.

If we need to use a separate tool to apply the signature other than the report designer, that would not be an issue.

The signature could be anything that Telerik/Progress decides we can use such as a code signing certificate, a strong name, etc.

Using the last modified time, or a hash value created from the current contents of the report file would not be a good solution as that would mean we would need to have a list of the hash values for each report and it would need to be updated every time the report is changed.
We are looking for something that could be applied to all reports that we create and that clients could not replicate.

This would need to be something that clients who we deploy the report files to cannot replicate and therefore if they modify the report file using the Telerik designer, it would remove that signature.  This way we can easily programmatically determine if the client has modified the report, and therefore prevent using it as if it is ours.

Note that we provide the ability to use custom reports in our application which are treated as separate from our core provided reports.  Also, I had posted to the forum asking if this is currently possible (https://www.telerik.com/forums/sign-telerik-reports).

Thank you.

At the moment, a whole words are removed from text until it becomes short enough to fit in the text box, and this is the only available behaviour.

There should be an option to put ellipsis or clip the text to the textbox width instead (like CSS text-overflow "ellipsis" and "clip").

There's also an older discussion here:

Telerik Reporting supports various Barcodes.

It will be very useful if it also supports out-of-the-box Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).

The blog RFID vs Barcode: Comparison, Advantages & Disadvantages elaborates on the difference between the Barcode and RFID and why the latter is preferred in some scenarios.

Please provide an option to launch a sub report directly from within the main report designer (standalone version).
Example, in Crystal reports, if there is a sub report within a report, a user can double click that sub report and it opens it as a new report tab. This is very convenient rather then having to chase down the path to the subreport and open it manually.

I am using Kendo UI Spreadsheet control in our project to present Tabular contents that end user can easily modify just like a normal spreadsheet operations and I saved it in database using toJSON method provided by kendo spreadsheet.

When I will get the database driven JSON data from kendo spreadsheet as mentioned above,  I want to present it in Telerik Reporting using Table (Datasource of that Table will be from JSON data I saved earlier).

Currently there is no such feature available in Telerik Reporting and I would like to request that feature to be included in future release.

At the moment it's only possible to have your reports in old-fashioned projects.

It should be possible to add/design reports to SDK-style projects. That should work no matter what target framework is (.NET Core, .NET Standard or .NET Framework).

In the Standalone/Visual Studio Report Designers, the distances from the currently selected report item to the nearest elements can be shown by clicking the Show Dimensions button.

We would like to see this functionality implemented for the Web Report Designer too.

Currently, the auth token is not yet passed from the client to the service. For that reason, it would be nice if the bearer token can be passed with the Web Report Designer API Requests.

I think navigating over pages by click is boring/complicated, scroll over pages seens to be the standard in the majority of applications.

I know that the HTML5 ReportViewer has the pageMode() property to solve this...

There's a way of implementing the PageModeProperty into the WPF ReportViewer?

I am trying to implement the ISharedDataSourceStorage interface and the SaveAsync method receives a parameter of type SaveResourceModel from which I cannot access the description that the user might have written in the UI.

The support team told me that the FileSharedDataSourceStorage class internally uses a SharedDataSourceDescriptionHelper class for accessing the description. 

Please make the helper class public so that we may also use it when implementing the ISharedDataSourceStorage interface.

The CSV renderer ignores the visible state of elements in a report definition (sections, headers, footers, text boxes etc.) with the Visible property to false - either explicity or by binding.

This results in much redundant content in the CSV file, that is often not even the actual output/result data - which should be the primary focus of a format like CSV.

Being able to control the output brings much flexibility to the CSV feature. Though Reporting primarily has a focus on a more rich, visual display of data, having access to the same "raw" result set that a report would evaluate can be very useful, without having to try replicate through other means.

Binding the Visible property of elements to: = RenderingFormat.Name <> "CSV" would allow the choice of including what makes sense in the ouput, even allowing a different "view" of the data, which could contain just detail row fields or additionally, summary fields from group and report headers & footers.

A search feature in the report editor would be very useful - being able to find all report components/items with any property containing input search text. An added bonus would be having a filtered or highlighted view of the properties of result items, indicating matches.

Being able to find expressions and other properties where some name/value is being used is a very helpful benefit.

UI functionality like that of the search in the Solution Explorer of Visual Studio, with a filtered hierarchical tree structure result view could work well, otherwise a separate results list might be good too.
