    Reporting: Using connectionStrings from configuration file

    We've been asked several times, what is the right way of using connection strings from the configuration file, so that Telerik Reports would work both in run time and design time. The answer can be found in this new Knowledge Base article: Using connectionStrings from configuration file It is worth mentioning that the Report and Data Source Wizards do this automatically when instructed to save the selected connection string in the config file. A working solution using the approach from the latter article can be found in our Visual Studio examples. Enjoy! ---------------- Steve...

    Medium Trust Support for Telerik Reporting

    A lot of people requested this, so we've put all our efforts into it and even managed to finish it in time for the Q2 service pack that shipped just this Friday - download it if you haven't yet. Please hold on your dismay - deploying an ASP.NET application containing Telerik Reporting on a web host that requires Medium Trust permission level is now a reality. For those of you, who do not know what that means - you probably do not need it, but if you would like to know, check the following "ASP.NET Trust Levels and Policy Files" and "Use Medium Trust in ASP.NET 2.0" documents in MSDN. There...

    New DEMO page for Telerik Reporting

        For a while now, we've been thinking about trying to distinguish between the concept of a QSF (Quick Start Framework) and a Demo. As you know, we call our Demos a QSF, because people can use it to get started with our controls by simply reviewing the code of the example. However, this does not hold true for Telerik Reporting, where the code is auto-generated by the report designer, and thus it does not really help in learning the product. So we decided - why not show how the reports are made instead and leave the designer to take care of the...

    Reporting Q2 2009 release

        Our main efforts for the Q2 2009 release were focused on the table item and as you can see from the release notes, we've added quite a few airs and graces here and there. Most noticeable of all being the two helper items - Table Wizard and CrossTab Wizard, print on every page ability for the ColumnGroup/RowGroup headers, GroupKeepTogether and various design time improvements - merge/split, keyboard navigation/selection and edit. Two improvements to the Report API - Processing Error Handling and the ability to hide the print progress dialog when printing a report programmatically For all of you Excel lovers out there - we've added standard percent, custom numeric...

    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...
