    Run Your Telerik Reports in the Cloud and Export Them to Word, PowerPoint & Excel 2007+

    As with every release, the Q1 2011 focus for Telerik Reporting has been on both -- the end-user and the developer. Analyze, Update, Present & Share Data Supporting the Office Open XML standard, developed by Microsoft for representing spreadsheets, presentations and word processing documents, was a natural evolution for Telerik Reporting. This notable end-user feature means that starting from Q1 2011 Telerik Reporting will be able to export its reports to 2007/2010 Microsoft Office PowerPoint, Word, and Excel documents. Native support for the Office Open XML standard means a couple of important things: Firstly, we are not simply exporting an image of the report,...

    Connecting Telerik Reporting to SQL Azure via Entity Framework

    January 11, 2011 Share
    Download SqlAzure.EntityFramework (C# VS2010) - 160KB In the previous blog post from the series we discussed how to connect Telerik Reporting to a SQL Azure database using Open Access ORM with the OpenAccessDataSource component. Now it is time to demonstrate how to perform this with another very popular ORM – Microsoft ADO.NET Entity Framework and the EntityDataSource component. For the sake of this example we assume an existing SQL Azure account with the Adventure Works sample database already installed. Let’s start with a new ADO.NET Entity Data Model. To connect to the SQL Azure database specify the server name and the login credentials of your SQL Azure account, then choose the AdventureWorksLTAZ2008R2 sample database as shown below: To create the entity model,...

    Deploying RadControls to Azure

    April 17, 2009 Share
    In the first part of this short series covering the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX in the cloud, I showed you how you could quickly (and easily) start a new Azure Cloud Service project, add the RadControls, and then debug the project locally. The next step, of course, is taking that locally built and debugged project and deploying it to the “real” cloud fabric, hosted by Microsoft in their data center (not yet data centers…). That is where the rubber meets the proverbial road and we find out if the Telerik RadControls are really “cloud ready.” HOW DO YOU DEPLOY TO AZURE? Assuming you’ve built a...
