    Is there the ability to add link buttons, or some kind of user event trigger, to allow a user to cause an event on one report to "drill down" and generate another report via this tool set?

    Hello JAY,

    Currently Telerik Reporting doesn't support drill down reports, and to our great regret, there is no way to workaround the missing behavior. This feature is scheduled for v2, due next year.

    Did drill-down in reports ever get implemented?

    Hi Brad,

    Unfortunately we have not had the time to work on interactive features this year, due to other priorities that took place and we needed to take care of.
    However if you need this for a website/webapp project only you could achieve it easily. If I understand correctly the inquiry from the first post, what you need is to add a link to another report passing some parameter(s) so that it can display relevant data.

    Here are the steps to do it:
    1. In the text that you need to be link, change the expression, so that it can be evaluated to a valid HTML hyperlink to another page with a report viewer. For example instead of
    =Fields.MasterData
    use
    ="<a href='Page2.aspx?MasterID=" + Fields.MasterID + "'>" + Fields.MasterData + "<\a>"

    2. Create Page2.aspx, containing a report viewer with your detailed report, and in the PageLoad event handler get the passed parameter in the request and set it to the report in the ReportViewer.

    Keep in mind that if you render the report using another rendering extension or print the report with the hyperlink the raw HTML will be displayed. So to avoid that you can use the approach from this KB article.

    Hi Jorge,

    As you can see from Telerik Reporting's RoadMap, we have not been able to work on this feature. Once again, Interactive features are in our TODO list and once we start working on them, they would be reflected in our RoadMap.

    Thank you for the understanding on the matter.

    Best wishes,

    Okay how about in 2009Q3? It's been about 2-1/2 years since that original "we're working on it" post, and it seems like a pretty important feature. As a matter of fact, I didn't even think to test that out before purchasing the license, since I assumed it was in there somehow.

    I'm using Telerik reports in a winforms report viewer - there's no way for me to create a report with links in it that would launch other, related reports?

    Hi msulis,

    We have not stated that we are working on that feature, only that it is logged in our TODO list and once we start working on it, they would be reflected in our RoadMap. We operate in a dynamic environment and things are always subject to change - we may decide to add or cancel new feature implementation at anytime depending on our capability to deliver products with "Telerik" quality. While we agree that drill down is an important feature, it is not trivial to implement and that fact along with other priorities that we needed to take care of are the reasons for this feature not being present at current version.

    At this time we cannot define a time frame for this feature and would reflect that in our RoadMap once we do start working on it.

    Please excuse us for the inconvenience.

    Just tell us the truth, are you going to implement drill down in our lifetime?

    John, thank you for your question. In order to answer properly, we'll need to know your exact date of birth and your intended lifespan. If you were born sometime *after* the Reagan administration ended, are a non-smoker, and avoid foods high in cholesterol, there's a very good chance.

    Thanks!

    Hi guys,

    We have some good news for you, although not all of you will be entirely satisfied.

    Telerik Reporting Q2 2010 will be the first milestone in our efforts to provide interactive reports. We will add hyperlink functionality, which will allow end users to drill through reports and subreports via links, to jump to other sections in a report (bookmarks), and to go to external web pages via URLs.

    The Q2 public roadmap will announced tomorrow - this news is directly from the kitchen.

    Drill down/up will be included in one of the following releases.

    Hello,

    We are happy to announce that Reporting Q3 2010 offers drill down interactive functionality for all report items, but charting (a workaround for charting is posted here). Q3 2010 was released yesterday.

    The drill down interactivity complements the previous interactive features, introduced earlier this year (drill through, links, etc.). Review What's New in Q3 2010 Reporting and check the more technical Q3 release notes.

    The Q3 version with drill down reporting is available for download in your account.

    Enjoy and send us your feedback!


    Sincerely yours,
    Vassil
