    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:

    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:
