    Exporting Telerik Reports to PowerPoint Presentation (Q1 2011)

    One of the greatest new features in Telerik Reporting Q1 2011 is the PowerPoint Presentation Rendering Extension, which produces a PowerPoint Presentation file from any Telerik report. The new rendering extension is part of the newly introduced support for the Office Open XML standard which meets “the new workplace challenges that include easily moving data between disparate applications, and allowing users to glean business insight from that data." (Source: MSDN). Supporting the Office Open XML standard also means that Telerik Reporting can export its reports not only to Microsoft Office PowerPoint, but to Word, and Excel 2007/2010. The native Office Open XML support means that any document suite,...

    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,...

    Using Telerik Reporting with WCF RIA Services

    October 22, 2010 Share
    Due to the rising popularity of Rich Internet Applications (RIA) e.g. Silverlight applications, the developers get more dependent on services for coordinating application logic between the middle tier and the presentation tier and the logical question raises how to use an already working WCF RIA Service as a datasource for Telerik Report. This is very useful if you want to enable the exact same business data access logic for clients other than Silverlight. For example to a WPF, WinForms or WebForms application. Thus we have made some tests locally and decided to share our observations in this post. Prerequisites: We will examine the WCF...

    Roadmap for Telerik Reporting Q3 2010 has been posted

    August 26, 2010 Share
    In case you've missed it, the Q3 2010 Telerik Reporting Roadmap has been posted on our site. Although seemingly short, our plans are quite exciting, because we are to extend the report interactivity we introduced in Q2 2010 with Drill-down (expand/collapse) and Sorting for our crosstab, table, and list report items. In addition, we have started working on a XML Report Serialization Engine which will allow report definitions to be represented in XML and saved as a stand-alone XML file. Finally, an important note: in Q3 2010 the Silverlight Report Viewer will be build against Silverlight 4 only. The reason is simple: the Silverlight Report Viewer utilizes our RadControls for Silverlight controls and themes, which...
