We're having quite a few problems with the Telerik reporting tools. Perhaps these issues are all just something we're doing wrong (and frankly we'd be happy if they were), but we're starting to believe that it's really a series of bugs in the product. This one we refer to internally as "Are We There Yet?".

Are We There Yet?
The Incredible Shrinking WPF ReportViewer is certainly a problem, but what led us to it in the first place is that there doesn't seem to be a way to host the ReportViewer in a RadWindow and accomplish the following:

  1. Position the window in the center of the owner (or even center screen) AFTER the report is actually rendered
  2. Ensure that the window is smaller than the screen resolution AFTER the report is actually rendered so that users can do things like click on the "Close" button

If we could set the ZoomMode to FullPage and then programmatically size and position the host window AFTER the report was rendered then we might be okay, but we can't find an event or other reliable way to know precisely when the ReportViewer is finished rendering so we're kind of stuck. Are we missing an event? How else can we generate the report and make sure the user can actually interact with it?

Hi Greg,

We will need additional details about your scenario since it is not very clear what you are trying to do. It seems that you want to resize the containers according to the size of the report. However if this is the case it will not be possible since there is no event that will be fired once the report rendering is complete (actually there is no way to know when the rendering is complete). 

Additionally since we are not aware of your current scenario and setup it would be best to continue the discussion in your support ticket on the matter and send as a runnable sample so that we are able to reproduce the issue at our end - this will help us identify the culprit faster and advise you accordingly.

Regards,
