    Setting custom skin for the web report viewer

    I've been asked a few times by clients how to customize the web report viewer's skins, so they can better match their company identity. I would try to describe 'the process' in this post. We are trying to stay close to the approach used for the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, so one who has used our web controls would be pleasantly surprised to find two familiar properties in Telerik Reporting - Skin and SkinsPath. As their names suggest, the first one is used to specify the name of the skin, while the second one specifies the path where this skin can be found. Let's start with...

    New support resources search facilities on

    Greetings everyone, With the brand new look-and-feel of we introduced for the landmark Q3 2008 release you probably noticed that the support resources searching capabilities have changed, too. Our aim was to expose intuitive and straight-forward means to browse the available resources based on their type and find the information/examples you need in a blink of an eye. In a nutshell, we would like each visitor to have the ability to search by product line and get a list of results with a leading indicator image designating the resource type (demo, help topic, knowledge base article, code library project, etc.). Since a...

    Hide duplicates in a column

    In some cases you might want to hide duplicates in a single "column" - for example if you group by a field, it would be nice to present the data in a more clean way.
