    Hi,

    We are using the standalone designer to ideally build reports and drop them into place where we have a screen
    that links to what reports are available.  The idea being to allow reports to be created without having to recompile
    the asp.net.  We retrieve data from Sql server 2008 R2 using Telerik DataSource.

    We have run into a problem in trying to convert datetimeoffset into a time zone name to display in the reports.
    In the web pages we use the .Net class timezoneinfo. Is there a way to call the .net managed code and manipulate the data
    retrieved from the data-source in Report designer.

    Hi Gord,

    Yes you can use .NET managed code with user functions in the Report Designer as elaborated in the How to use external assemblies with custom user functions in the Report Designer help article.

    Give it a try and let us know if you need additional assistance.

    Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q2 2013? You can get them from your account.
