I was a bit dissapointed to find drilldown functionality still not available in 2009 Q1.

I'm about to start a huge reporting project that requires a lot of drilldown functionality and would like to know if you have plans to include drilldowns this year or whether I need to find alternatives for this project. Are there workarounds to simulate drilldowns using Reporting?

Hello Brett,

Indeed such functionality is not available yet. However since you are using the web viewer, you should be able to achieve the desired behavior with a little more effort.

Here are the steps to do it:
1. In the text that you need to be link, change the expression, so that it can be evaluated to a valid HTML hyperlink to another page with a report viewer. For example instead of
=Fields.MasterData
use
="<a href='Page2.aspx?MasterID=" + Fields.MasterID + "'>" + Fields.MasterData + "<\a>"

2. Create Page2.aspx, containing a report viewer with your detailed report, and in the PageLoad event handler get the passed parameter in the request and set it to the report in the report viewer.

Keep in mind that if you render the report using another rendering extension or print the report with the hyperlink the raw HTML will be displayed.

Ohhhhhhh....

I was all excited to recommend Telerik Reporting on a new project.  Drill-down is a MUST-HAVE, and keeping in mind that the Raw HTML will be visible when printing a report is certainly a no-go.

It sounds to me like this feature isn't going to be implemented any time soon.  Is that correct?

Thank you.

Hi Barry P,

It is in our TODO list with high priority, but we cannot engage with a specific timeframe at this point. As soon as we start working on this functionality it would be reflected on our RoadMap.

Sincerely yours,

Hello guys,

We are happy to announce that Reporting Q3 2010 offers drill down interactive functionality for all report items, but charting (a workaround for charting is posted here). Q3 2010 was released yesterday.

You can find details on the Q3 2010 Reporting release here. Also check the more technical Q3 release notes.

The Q3 version with drill down reporting is available for download in your accounts.

Enjoy and send us your feedback!


Sincerely yours,
