    Creating a Calendar Report with Telerik Reporting

    An interesting question that we frequently are being asked is: How to create a calendar report? Generally, the requirement is to create a report showing appointments and bookings just as in a month planner calendar/scheduler. When you think about it, tracking tasks and events when displayed in a calendar is instant - the users have all the information they need into a well known layout that allows to easily analyze tasks and projects. It is no wonder that our clients request this type of report. The easiest way to prepare a dynamic calendar report is to utilize our flexible crosstab/table/list item. Due to the...

    Teaser: Telerik Reporting CrossTab Wizard

    Telerik Reporting Q2 2009 release (expected within a week) would come with new table/crosstab wizards. As the first one is pretty trivial i.e. you set datasource for the table and select which columns to show, we would skip detail introduction, but showing off with the crosstab wizard is something we would gladly do :) As you can see our designers have prepared some really nice images to spice it up. Now let's go to the Arrange Fields step, where we select the fields from our datasource and arrange them into Row/Column groups depending on what we're aiming for. If we skip adding fields to the...
