    I need a report designer that i can embed into my web (asp.net MVC) application.  Does telerik reporting have a suitable designer.  Silverlight is fine.

    Hello Sean,

    If the users need to make slight changes to the report presentation, you can let them do so by using report parameters. Report parameters are used to specify the data to use in a report, connect related reports together, and vary report presentation.

    If your users need to make a lot of changes to the report definition, layout, data fields used, etc., the only options to let your users do so on demand is by providing the Standalone Report Designer as a part of your integrated product, or by creating a custom module in your application which generates reports on the fly based on user input. Note that creating a tool or a module which will generate the entire report definition on the fly based on some user defined rules and settings is not a trivial matter. In general, the fastest way to do this is to to create the desired report layout in the Visual Studio Report Designer and use the code it automatically generated in the .Designer.cs file as a template for dynamic report generation. In this undertaking you may also find useful the Programmatic Control of Reports help articles on the topic and the Reporting API Reference.

    Can the stand alone report designer be used from within a web app or is it windows only?

    Hello Sean,

    The Standalone Report Designer is a Windows tool and cannot be used from within a web application.
