    I would like to know if we can create custom reports with Telerik reporting. For example the user will choose the columns on the fly, the group by and the sort and when he is done, a Telerik report will comes up. Is it possible without creating a template for each report?

    Hello Chris,

    Telerik report is a template repeated for the assigned to it data. Report can be created through our Report Designers, or dynamically.

    Using the provided report designers will ease you to create the desired layout. When you use the integrated in Visual Studio Report Designer you will be able to get the auto-generated code in the report's designer.cs(vb) file and modify and reuse it to build a report from scratch.

    With the described requirements, where data schema is flexible based on the user selection, you can use the dynamic approach. All you need is to gather the user's preferences for data and report layout, send the information to the server and build a Telerik.Reporting.Report object as would do the VS Report Designer.

    I hope the information is helpful.
