Hi,

Our software enables the enduser to add 'Fee fields' to entities. This takes form as a list of 'key' and 'value' pairs in the data class.

A colleague of mine already asked about it here: https://www.telerik.com/forums/dynamic-properties-in-object-data-source

It is very important that the designer shows the available free fields with the name chosen by the enduser. I want to ask again, is it possible in some way?

I tried dynamic compilation of a DLL, but the ObjectDatasource sometimes becomes blank in the designer.

I tried a DataTable and the free fields show up correclty in the designer but i can only feed one DataTable as the root datasource. I can not create multiple DataTables as datasources in the Report before saving it to a file and then showing it in the designer. I also dont know how a DataTable deals with related entities and collections.

I tried a DataSet but that just gives 'can not find a parameterless constructor' error in the designer.

Are we out of options here?

Hello Rein,

We do not have support for such dynamic properties design-time support scenario. Consider logging it as feature request on our feedback portal: https://feedback.telerik.com/Project/162
