Greetings,
I have a Telerik report (Q3 2008) in which I want to display a column containing a hyperlink for drill down/detail purposes.  This report will use the web viewer only.  The hyperlink will be implemented using technique described here:  http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/reporting/telerik-reporting/how-to-display-field-in-hyperlink.aspx

As per the thread from the above link, raw HTML markup will be rendered when the report is exported to PDF or XLS, which is undesireable.  Is there a way to use the Report Viewer Export event to remove the hyperlink column or textbox from the report prior to the rendering so the html markup is not part of the final output?  If so, how would this be accomplished?
Thank you,
-kenf-

Hi KenF,

We are already working on HTML Text Box item (more info in our Q1 2009 RoadMap) With the current version you can use the workaround from this KB article.

Kind regards,

Steve,
Thank you very much for your response.  I was aware that the next release would support the html text box, but my need for a hyperlink column is immediate.  The kb article you directed me to was exactly what I was looking for.  That allowed me to display a hyperlink field in my report, yet print normal text if exported to pdf or xls.  The only thing I would add for the benefit of others who may have this same need is this.  When I ran the example project from the kb article, as well as in my own project, the hyperlink box would stagger off the row, and make that data field uneven in the row.  That is, the hyperlink textbox would appear to drop down about a half line on each row.  This undesireable effect was corrected when I made the CanGrow property of the textbox = false.  After that, all of the rows of the report were straight and even.  Thank you for your help.

Hello,

We are happy to announce that Reporting Q3 2010 offers drill down interactive functionality for all report items, but charting (a workaround for charting is posted here). Q3 2010 was released yesterday.

The drill down interactivity complements the previous interactive features, introduced earlier this year (drill through, links, etc.). Review What's New in Q3 2010 Reporting and check the more technical Q3 release notes.

The Q3 version with drill down reporting is available for download in your account.

Enjoy and send us your feedback!


Sincerely yours,
Vassil
