    Hi

    I want to create Telerik reports depending on the user's selection of columns from some sort of web form
    where the user will select what columns he/she wants to see in the report, and then the report should be generated accordingly.
    Can someone tell me if this is possible and how one will be able to do it?

    I am new to Telerik reporting and would appreciate some help :)

    Regards
    Gregory

    Hi Gregory,

    Reports don’t have columns. You can set the page to be split on columns (create a newspaper style reports), you can create a tabular report layout with the Table item or align report items to mimic columns. I’m not sure what’s the exact case here.

    If you prefer you may generate the report definition programmatically. As a reference source we highly recommend creating the desired report layout through the Report Designer first and then review the code in the InitializeComponent to see the internal structure. Still we have attached a sample report that is generating dynamically its table definition. It uses the AdventureWorks database installed along with the product.
