Hi,

We are working on a project which provide user defined reports using data in database. Currently we are using other vendor controller that support upload user defined template to our system and it applies styles, headers, static images and footer section to dynamically generate sections. We want to move our project to telerik reports. But I couldn't find this feature on your products. I found some forums that saying this feature will be provided in future versions but unable to find it. We are not expecting report designers. We can achieve what ever we want using code behind. What we want is apply user template to reports.

Appreciate if telerik team has solution for this.

Regards
Chap

Hello Chap,

Generally Telerik Reporting depends on report definition that is created from a report template. However your requirements seems uncommon for a reporting solution and we are not sure we have completely understood them. Thus we will appreciate if you point us to a reporting solution that covers your requirements to better comprehend the functionality you are looking for.

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

Hi Peter,

We have come up with a full dynamic telerik reporting solution using html templates, I am having a problem with formatting numeric values. So far we can format values using expressions and add that to textbox format as below example

string format ="#,#.00";
textBox.Format = string.Format("{{0:{0}}}", format);

What I want is print values in red color if value is negative. Can you give me a solution for it.
I prefer that condition can be put like this.

string format ="condition"

Hi Chap,

For your requirement our suggestion is to use conditional formatting. We highly recommend creating the desired conditional formatting through the Report Designer first and then review the code in the InitializeComponent to see the internal structure.
