Hi,

 

I added a Navigate to Report action (link to an Subreport object) to a textbox. I can click on it in the Preview Tab. However in the generated PDF the textbox isnt even clickable.

 

Thanks

Also in the preview, it doesnt seem like it is a page jump (which is what I wanted), it looks like it just create a new subreport. What I want is a page jump links in the footer of every page, such that user can click on the links and jump to the associated page. Is that not possible with Action (navigate to report)?

What I want is in the footer of every page, there is a bunch of page jump links that enable users to navigate to the associated pages by clicking on the links.

Is it not possible with Action: Navigate to Report?

Hi Pinkesh,

The NavigateToReportAction causes a Target report to be opened in the same viewer as the main report. The action is not supported in PDF files -  PDF: Interactivity.

If you use a SubReport item, the the Sub report is displayed as a content in the main report.


Please check the list with available actions and if the Hyperlink Action (opens the set URL in the browser window), Bookmark Action (for navigation in the same report's content, related to Document Map) or TOC features suits you better.

Thanks Stef,

 

Bookmark seems to do the trick for now. However I have no option for the TOC, which version supports it? Im currently using:

Q2 2015, 9.1.15.624.

 

Also is it possible to use dynamic bookmark? As in I have items in a group section that get generated base on the query, and users need to be able to click on any of these items and go to a specific page.

For example: in a group, I generate multiple thumbnail photos, when user click on these photos it will redirect them to the associated photo sub-report page. Is this possible?

thanks

Hello Pinkesh,

The TOC feature is included as of R3 2016 of Telerik Reporting.

About bookmarks, each section can have set an unique BookmarkId. To target these sections, you need to create Bookmark Action on an item, where the TargetBookmarkId can be set via expression that resolves to the unique name of a section.
