Hello,

I'm new to telerik reporting and I've been trying for a few days to Bind a DataSet to a Table from the code-behind(I want to make it look like a simple table (like simple DataGrid in ASP.NET)). I want to make so the columns and the rows are automatically generated for every DataSet that I give to the Report, so with every DataSet the table will have different columns and rows. I create the dataset codebehind so i cannot use the design view like it's shown in the demos. I've searched the internet for a solution but coudn't find any. The thing is everytime I bind a dataset to the table some cells appear, but there is no data in the cells - they are blank(white as the background). I'm probably missing something but I can't figure out what, I would be grateful of you give me some tips.

As far as I know there is no AutoGenerateColumns property for the table item and in fact I've not encountered such functionality in Crystal and Reporting Services either. The matrix and table items in reporting products are much different than standard ASP.NET table and there cannot be comparison between both. In order to see data, you should set the Value property of the textbox items in the table to your specific fields. Currently the table would probably render as much empty rows as the number of rows in your datasource.

Cheers!

Thank you, I've just figured that out by myself :). I solved my problem but I was just wondering if columns could be inserted codebehind. I'd be grateful for your assistance.
