I just installed the reporting Q3. May I know what is the easiest way to convert all my Q2 reports to Q3? Can Q2 and Q3 reports exists together in a project?
Thanks.

Hello cheekl,

To start using the new version you have to do the following steps:
  1. Update any existing project that use Telerik Reporting: 
    • Web Site project:
      1. Delete all Telerik Reporting assemblies from the Web Site’s Bin folder 
      2. From the References tab on Web Site’s Property Pages remove all references to Telerik Reporting assemblies with version 1.5.x.0
      3. Add reference to the new version of Telerik Reporting assemblies:
        • Telerik.Reporting 2.0.0.0
        • Telerik.Reporting.Interfaces 2.0.0.0
        • Telerik.Reporting.Processing 2.0.0.0
        • Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms 2.0.0.0 
           
      4. Open all report resource files (In the Solution Explorer tool window .RESX files under the report nodes) as XML and replace all occurrences of Telerik Reporting assemblies from 1.5.x.0 to 2.0.0.0. 
         
    • Class Library/Windows Forms/Web application project: 
      1. In Solution Explorer tool window update all References (under project References’ node) from Telerik Reporting 1.5.x.0 assemblies to the corresponding assemblies version 2.0.0.0 
      2. Open all report resource files (In the Solution Explorer tool window .RESX files under the report nodes) as XML and replace all occurrences of Telerik Reporting assemblies from 1.5.x.0 to 2.0.0.0.
         
      Note: if you do not see the resource files turn on the Solution Explorer’s “Show All Files”
       
  2. Rebuild all updated projects
There is no need to modify the report definition files. They will work as expected with the new version of the assemblies.

I don't agree that the 1.5 Reports will work as expected in 2.0.

I made the versioning changes but the margins are not rendering in the web report viewer or export files.  Everything is rendered as if the left margin was 0 in.

Hi Richard Brown,

Version 2.0 of Telerik Reporting is backwards compatible and all reports created with the previous versions should work as expected. The only difference is that TextBox.CanGrow is now true by default. For more information what's new please see the Release History.

Regarding the margins in the Web Viewer -- since the viewer renders the reports in HTML and it is not page oriented format the page settings are ignored. This includes the margins too and Web Viewer just shows the report in the center of its viewing area.

In case you have found any other discrepancies between the 1.5 and 2.0 version please send us your report and any other information you find useful so we can examine it and give back to you with proper solution.

Regards,
