Standalone Report Designer connection strings configuration by external program launching it
I am launching standalone Telerik Report Designer from our application to edit custom reports stored in a database.
I was able to inject the application custom functions assembly reference into designer`s config before launching it and it works fine.
But I was not able to inject the application connection string into designer`s config before launching it because the designer does not use global ConnectionStrings section, but custom ConnectionStrings section in userSettings which makes it problematic to update.
Can You change the designer to allow usage of ConnectionStrings from the designer`s global config section or provide another means?
That is essential to render reports successfully with correct data, because the reports use named connection strings.
I preffer this instead of changing all connection strings in report`s data sources.

Thank You

Hi Marek, 

Can you post your request in the Reporting Feedback Portal (, so other Reporting users can see it and vote for it?

Thank you in advance,
