Hello,

We have a need to inherit our reports from an abstract base class, and when we do we can not access the designer.  An error comes up saying "The designer must create an instance of type 'reportbasename' but it cannot because the type is declared as abstract. "  I changed the base type to a normal class and recieved the following error: "The designer could not be shown for this file because none of the classes within it can be designed. The designer inspected the following classes in the file: reportname --- The base class 'reportbasename' could not be loaded. Ensure the assembly has been referenced and that all projects have been built. "

Any help or guidelines to follow for this issue would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the quick response.

I had already come across that article, and the last post was from the end of August.  Have there been any updates to your timeline since then?

Thanks again,

Hi Lars,

Due to other pending issues/features we have not worked on that problem. Unfortunately at this time we cannot provide a time frame for when this would be resolved.

Please excuse us for the inconvenience.

Kind regards,
