In SSRS, I can give names to my expressions to help developers find what they're looking for. Instead of showing "Expr=blahblah," I can change the label to something like "GrandTotal" while working on the design.

I'm wondering if there's a similar option in the Telerik Visual Studio designer. We're thinking of moving 70 reports to Telerik, but if the design view only displays the expression and sometimes only partial context, like "[=Count(" for example, it could cause a big problem for development.

Thank you,
Evan
