    Hello there.  Happy Holidays.

    I am currently using your tools for reporting. Great job and thanks a lot to all of you over there.


    I have a client who would like to check some boxes in the PDF and save his copy on his post. Is your reporting tools can make editable PDFs such as checkboxes or fillable fields? If no, what are the possibilities of producing such a document?

    Hi Louis,

    In general, the idea of Telerik Reporting is to present data from various data sources in a customizable format for the purpose of previewing, printing, sharing and archiving. However, the generated report itself is not editable, so the exported document from it will have the same property. PDF files exported with Telerik Reporting cannot be edited or filled with information out-of-the-box. However, you might be able to use a third party tool to edit such PDF programmatically.

    Thank you for the understanding.
