Hello, I'd like to, using the Standalone Report Designer, Import an existing Visual Studio Report (.cs) and save it as a trdx.
I have seen the following links:
They indicate it possible but the second link seems for a different interface than mine. (There is no " In the Open dialog window, select .NET Report Library from the file type combobox. ")
and following the first link leads to an Import Report Wizard but in the "available converters" there is only Crystal Reports. Also the file filter gives no option for extensions other than *.rpt.
Do I have to install/ download a .NET converter?
I have Report Designer Q3 2015.

The first link is about Converting reports from other reporting solutions and is not relevant in your case.
The step from the second link "In the Open dialog window, NET Report Library from the file type " is correct as demonstrated in this video. You need to find your DLL file containing the reports in this step. The report designer used in the video is version Q3 2015.
Thank you very much!
for some reason the dialog box wasn't apparent to me...
I'm trying to import Telerik Reports as seen in the video and I choose the dll file. However, The following screen doesn't show any reports.
I've tried the x86 and x64.
The Reports dll is a normal class library.
I'm using Version 22.214.171.124
Only reports that have a default parameterless constructor can be imported in Standalone Designer - How to: Import reports created with the VS Report Designer. Thus, check if the reports you are trying to import meet this requirement.
If reports depend on external assemblies for data source, user function or custom aggregate, you have to reference those assemblies in the configuration file of Standalone Designer - Extending Report Designer.
Also, make sure that the version of Standalone Designer is the same as the version of reports.
If the issue persists send the assembly with reports in a support ticket so we can test importing it on our side.
Telerik by Progress
Do you wish to convert a CS/VB report to a TRDP/TRDX report? If so, you can take a look at the attached video.
Love the Telerik and Kendo UI products and believe more people should try them? Invite a fellow developer to become a Progress customer and each of you can get a $50 Amazon gift voucher.

How about custom base report class ??
I could see the reports inherited from Telerik.Reporting.Report class in .NET Report Library, but can't see the reports inherited from custom report base class :
public class MyReportBase : Telerik.Reporting.Report
public partial class Report1 : MyReportBase // Telerik.Reporting.Report
Note that we cannot convert custom code or report with report events. You may create a separate report with all content that is contained in the MyBaseClass.
