Hi,

I would like to create a report from a Telerik.Reporting.ObjectDataSource.
I need to generate a report from the top to the bottom and not from left to right which seems to be the default behavior.

I didn't find a simple way to do it.

Is it possible to do it simply ?
if yes, how can I do it ?

Thanks for your answer.

Regards.

Fred

Hello Cantenot,

There must be some confusion. Currently the only supported layout when using multi-columns is down then across i.e. what you describe to want. How did you observe the behavior you've reported?

Hi,

I would like to create a report like this.

             Date1   Date2  Date3 Date4 Date5 Date6 Date7 Date8 Date9 Date10 Date11 Date12
Label1     data     data    data   ...
Label2     data     data    data   ...
...           data     data    data   ...

Datas come from an ObjectDataSource. It's a collection with maximum twelve objects.
I have twelve months but it can be less if there is no data inside database.
I also have 23 labels.The number is not going to change.

I need to generate dynamically date1, date2, date3, date4 and so on...and datas associated...
I bound my datasource on the report.

But now, I just have the last data of my collection which is displayed. But inside my collection I have twelve objects.

I don't know how I can display all datas from left to right to display a report like my sample.

I don't know if I'am clear. If not, let me know.

Thanks

Regards

Fred

Crosstab doesn't seem to be the solution.
I take a look on this link (http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/data-items.html) and I don't know how I can solve my problem.

I just want to display my report like this:
                     Object1.Date     Object2.Date    ...
StaticLabe1     Object1.Data1   Object2.Data1  ...
StaticLabel2    Object1.Data2   Object2.Data2  ...
StaticLabelX   ...                     ...                   ...

It is possible ?

Thanks

Your posts are pretty vague and confusing to say the least and everything that anyone could suggest would be a shot in the dark according to me. After reading you post from 26th I thought I figured you out and that you basically wanted a crosstab, but since you state that this is not working for you, I am at lost. If you need further help I would suggest elaborating with screenshots what is the current result and another one showing what you want. In the meantime, since you started talking about collections, I would recommend reviewing the following: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/reporting/telerik-reporting/data-source-business-objects.aspx

Cheers!

Thanks for your answer. I'm french, that's why my english is not very good and the post is vague.
In fact, I solved my problem with a different structure of my business object.
Now I can generate my report with a simple datasource and a table.

Thanks for your help.

Regards.

Fred
