Hi

Is it possible to filter data client-side?  Our reports are populated by web services and we don't want to create a new method for every filtering scenario.

Is there a way to post process the data returned and filter it based on an expression (linq possibly?) before the report is populated and displayed to the user?

Thanks

Hi Clinton,

The report data-binding and processing happen on the server, thus there is no client side filtering or binding. You can use report parameters to filter the already assigned to the report data. In case of using the Standalone Designer, you can extend it with your custom assembly loading the data from your service into an in-memory object as DataSet or Datatable, and thus avoid calling the service on each operation over the report's data.

For more details take a look at the following articles:

Let us know if you have further questions.

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q2 2013? You can get them from your account.
