I am trying to convert an application that uses MQL Reporting Services to telerik Reporting. I favor the design, layout, and ease of implementation using telerik's product; however, I am at a serious crossroads concerning charting (since I already pay for telerik's product it seems rather un-frugal use of money and time using another product). The charting part of the reporting lacks seriously in design-time configuration and in printing (whether to paper, pdf, excel, etc). It seems as if the charting component is just an afterthought and now just sits in the toolbox un-enhanced so it can be touted as a feature without any further development...a web page bitmapped component slapped into the reporting toolbox.
 
I understand that a charting component is a complicated piece; but this product has already been out a couple years and fancy-type stuff is being added to puff up the feature set while this 'bread and butter' functionality gets ignored. For the most part, I cannot use this product in fear someone will want a chart and I will NOT be able to produce a professional out.

Perhaps I am in the minority and either the ability to actually print a report on paper or charting is not used by anyone.

Am I one of only a few people that this affects?
