Hi - We're a product company and are evaluating a new reporting platform.  There's a few questions I can't seem to clearly resolve via documentation.  I'd appreciate it if you could clarify!

1)  Our product needs to provide a runtime report designer to our customers.  So, in ref to your stand-alone report designer:
  a.  Can we extend / customize display controls and offer them as part of the stand-alone designer?  I've already seen that data providers are customizable.
  b.  Can users load / edit / save reports in the stand-alone designer via in-memory structures only, i.e. no files / file system involved at all?  We need to move report definitions in and out of our database with no file system involvement.
  c.  Is it possible to customize other parts of the stand-alone designer?  I.e. toolbars, toolbar event handlers, etc.

2)  Can your reports be exported to native DOCX?  I'm not referring to RTF that'll open in MS Office, etc.  Referring to native DOCX here.

I need to determine the basics here before dedicating some time to an eval, so thanks for any info!

Hello Andy,

In regards to your questions:

1. At the moment, Standalone Designer tool comes as it is and cannot be customized. The report produced with this tool can be in TRDP format (packaged report definition) or in TRDX ( format that can be saved as XML in the database).
More information regarding Standalone designer can be found in this help article.

We have similar requests for allowing the Designer to be customizable in our feedback portal (link1, link2). You can give a vote for any of those or log a new request if it is different. New features are selected for development based on the demand from the community.

2. Telerik Reporting provides a rendering extension for exporting the reports to DOCX format. The reports will be exported according to the Design Considerations for Word Rendering.
