I have skipped a few releases with Reporting.  We have a solution which makes extensive use of textbox formatting based off of the data of each textbox.  This solution was developed in VS 2008 and last Telerik upgrade was to  6.0.12.215.  I have not touched it in months and works great in production.

I have some new reports to make, and have converted the project from VS 2008 to VS 2010, no errors reported.  Also installed Q1 2013 Telerik reporting this morning, no errors in the upgrade process.

Every existing format is now blank for the rule, though the rule still exists.  Every report has dozens of errors on build that all say:

"Type Telerik.Reporting.Data.Filter is not defined"

Format box looks like this, note the left side saying no rule.  There are 20 reports in the solution, each with 1-10 formatting options per textbox, with a few dozen textboxes per report.

Is this a known issue?  Is there a way I can recover all of the formatting work?

Search and replace in the project solved it.

Find
Telerik.Reporting.Data.Filter

Replace
Telerik.Reporting.Filter

Also needed:
Find
Telerik.Reporting.Data.Grouping

Replace
Telerik.Reporting.Grouping

You are a legend! - also had to replace Telerik.Reporting.Data.Sorting with Telerik.Reporting.Sorting

Thanks for the method!

Pity the Telerik upgrade wizard missed this one...

Gentlemen, appreciate the forum thread.

Just ran into this issue myself.  It was great to have a forum with
the steps to correct already in place...

...and we can also add Telerik.Reporting.Data.SortDirection to be replaced with Telerik.Reporting.SortDirection if you have any occurences in your report that overrides the ascending default for sorting.

Thanks for the SortDirection addition.  Ran into that one today.

Replace =  Telerik.Reporting.Data.SortDirection
With =  Telerik.Reporting.SortDirection

Here is one I haven't found the replacement for....

Me.Group1.Bookmark = Nothing

The error is...

Error 44 'Bookmark' is not a member of 'Telerik.Reporting.Group'.

There is a BookMarkId property and that will get it to compile but not sure what Telerik did with Bookmark.


TO TELERIK --
We like your products but this is a serious quality control issue.  Your Reporting Upgrade Wizard should handle
the replacement of these "obsolete" types.  After all, the "designer" files are generated by the Telerik Reporting
product and are not written by the developer.

Sincerely,
Dennis

Dennis,

I also ran into the Bookmark issue as well.  I only had 6 (or so) occurrences of this and just deleted them.  However, I agree with your statements regarding conversions and hope that Telerik addresses this issue.
