I just upgraded to Reporting v.4.1.10.291 and now I cannot reference the Telerik.Reporting.Report namespace. Any idea as to why?


Thanks

Hello Dwayne,

First check if you have reference to Telerik.Reporting.dll added in your project. Second, you're not allowed to add using to a type directly. The only way you can do this is through alias e.g.

using Report = Telerik.Reporting.Report;

but you should not have to add this in a first place.

All the best,

This is my first time upgrading telerik reports so maybe I missed something.

I used the upgrade wizard within VS 2008 for upgrading. It successfully went through it's process. I did try and re-add the reference to the telerik.reporting.dll for the current version.

my code example is below:

Dim

 

rpt As Telerik.Reporting.Report (Message - "The Report is ambigious in the namespace" telerik.Report")
rpt =
New ClassReports.SomeReport

 

ReportViewer1.Report = rpt

After typing telerik.Reporting I have get no report selection. I do get others selections such as PDF,Service, processing, Interfaces, etc..

Hello Dwayne,

Please delete all relevant reporting assemblies from its bin folder manually and copy the new ones from the installation folder manually as well. The Upgrade Wizard cannot upgrade separate assemblies - it only takes care of updating all references. Additionally according to the error in this ticket, it would seem that the report assembly still holds reference to the old Telerik Reporting version. If this is the case, most likely the reference to the report assembly is not Auto Updated. To make sure of this, delete the reference to the stale dll and add reference to the report class library itself.

Best wishes,
Steve
