    Is it possible to access values that a sub report has within the parent report?

    Example: My sub report query will return a calculated value (lets say I have an expression in the sub report that is just "1+1"). Within the parent report, I would like to have an expression of ....IIF(subreport.field) = 2, "You picked the value of 2", "you did not pick the value of 2").


    In crystal reports, you would create a global variable and that variable could be used within the entire report structure.

    Is such a think possible in the standalone application?

    I have found references to this ReportItem.Report.ItemDefinition.MyFunction(args) but it does not really explain or show what it does.

    Hi Brian,

    Telerik Reporting does not provide an alternative to the global variables concept out-of-the-box. There are some options to do this with code, but not for the standalone designer.
    If you are interested in more details, check this thread.
