    Is it possible that a future release will contain the possibility to save a report-design to file?

    We want to be able to load a report-design in runtime.

    Hello Chris,

    I guess your request is really for an "end user designer", which is already in our TODO list. Once we start working on it, we would note that in our RoadMap here.

    I'm sorry but that's not what we're after.

    We really need a file based report design, and be able to load the design runtime.

    Let's say that we have a reportviewer, and we choose to show a report on customer calls with some parameters (start date, end date, category)

    Then we want to be able to do something like this:

    Pseudo-code:
    Report report = new Report(); 
    report.Load(pathToReportDesign); // This should be loaded from a saved file (eg. C:\reports\callList.trp ) 
     
    report.Parameters.Add(typeof(DateTime), "startDate", myStartDate); 
    report.Parameters.Add(typeof(DateTime), "endDate", myEndDate); 
    report.Parameters.Add(typeof(int), "categoryID", myCategory); 
     
    report.Run(); // Executes the report with the specified parameters on the loaded report design-file.

    Hi Chris,

    It seems that we have misunderstood your question, sorry for this. Our short term plans include adding support for XML definition of reports that I guess is what you are after. We need some more time to implement this, but I guess that it will be available for the 1st quarter of 2010.
     

    Kind regards,
