Hi Everyone,

I have dozens of reports to create in my application.  Of course they all show different data, but they ALL have some common elements, such as company name and logo, page #, and printed date/time, and those common elements also need to be positioned the same. 

So, is it possible to create a base class with Telerk reporting, that would contain these common elements?  And would it be possible to somehow inform the Telerik Report Wizard to use that "base report class" when it's fired up for a new report?

Thank you much for any and all advice and suggestions!

Dan

Hi Dan,

Yes, it is possible to create a "base class" that you can inherit from your reports, although the wizard would not be aware of this and you have to do it manually. More information is available in the following forum thread.
