Hi,

before we start to develope a new app one or two questions to telerik reporting.

As i can see the "TRDX-File" is a xml-Struct. So it should be possible to creat a report on the fly by writting a
txt-file an name it to trdx?! Including a csv-Datasource?

And with the Report Viewer it should be possible to print the report in a pdf File with correct sizing like 15cm width
and 7cm height? So i can send the pdf to a windows label-printer??

 

Thanks a lot
Regards RENE

Hi Rene,

Reports definition is quite complex and it is not recommended to create it on the fly as it might lead to the errors like the one we discussed in the support ticket #1123920 Error after saving Report.
If there is a need to create reports programmatically check out Programmatic Control of Reports section.

To set the page size of the report, you can use PaperKind and PaperSize properties in report's PageSettings options.

Hi,

i think it's not so dificult. I have to create a file like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Report DataSourceName="csvDataSource1" Width="104mm" UnitOfMeasure="Mm" Name="Report1" SnapGridSize="0.1cm" xmlns="http://schemas.telerik.com/reporting/2012/4.2">
  <DataSources>
    <CsvDataSource RecordSeparators=" " FieldSeparators=",}" HasHeaders="True" Name="csvDataSource1">
      <Source>
        <Uri Path="file://goldab/pcdaten/test.csv" />
      </Source>
      <Columns>
        <DataColumn Name="sku" />
        <DataColumn Name="Name" />
        <DataColumn Name="Bild" />
      </Columns>
    </CsvDataSource>
  </DataSources>
  <Items>
    <DetailSection Height="60mm" Name="detailSection1">
      <Items>
        <Barcode Width="54mm" Height="21.0000019073486mm" Left="36.9999974767368mm" Top="4.99999747673678mm" Value="= Fields.sku" Stretch="True" Name="barcode1">
          <Encoder>
            <EAN128Encoder />
          </Encoder>
        </Barcode>
        <PictureBox Width="25.9999949534736mm" Height="25.9999989906947mm" Left="4.99999949534736mm" Top="4.99999747673678mm" Name="pictureBox1">
          <Bindings>
            <Binding Path="Value" Expression="= Fields.Bild" />
          </Bindings>
        </PictureBox>
        <TextBox Width="48.9999954581262mm" Height="18.9999984860421mm" Left="4.99999949534736mm" Top="34.9999984860421mm" Value="= Fields.Name" Name="textBox1" />
      </Items>
    </DetailSection>
  </Items>
  <PageSettings PaperKind="Custom" PaperSize="106mm, 60mm" Landscape="False" ColumnCount="1" ColumnSpacing="0cm" ContinuousPaper="False">
    <Margins>
      <MarginsU Left="1mm" Right="1mm" Top="1mm" Bottom="1mm" />
    </Margins>
  </PageSettings>
  <StyleSheet>
    <StyleRule>
      <Style>
        <Padding Left="2pt" Right="2pt" />
      </Style>
      <Selectors>
        <TypeSelector Type="TextItemBase" />
        <TypeSelector Type="HtmlTextBox" />
      </Selectors>
    </StyleRule>
  </StyleSheet>
</Report>

 

The dynamic Parameter has to be set correctly, but the rest is static.

Thanks a lot

RENE
