We would like to integrate the designer into our application

What we would like is to be able to wrap the exe so that we can pass in the template file we want to edit and then save the file back to our database

Is this at all possible?

Hi Cameron,

Currently we do not offer a report designer that can be embedded in clients' applications. Our focus is on catching up with some important features for a tool like this (working with data, etc). The designer is a pretty complicated software and we're not sure whether it is suitable for a conventional usage, so this matter is about to be considered.

You would be happy to know that for the Q3 2012 release, one of the features that would be introduced is Report templates for the Report Designer (see RoadMap), so you would be able to accomplish the described scenario.

Greetings,
Steve

Thanks Steve

We have partially implemented this already by creating a report designer layout file on the fly with the datasource added at run time, we throw this our to isolated storage and then use java script to open the file with the report designer

We can then edit the template and when we hit save it saves back to isolated storage , the user has to then return to our app and then when they hit save in the silverlight app it grabs the file then pushes it to a table

We will then do similar when we want to create the report, pulling from the table into isolated storage and passing it and its datasource to the report view (which thanks to your support in my other thread we now have working)

As you can see its a bit clunky but will work in lieu of a slicker option from you guys

Hi Francisco,

The Standalone Report Designer is not available as a control that can be integrated in other application.

There is a Report Server application, proving built-in functionality like users, data, reports management. Automatic export and mailing of reports. Options for downloading the Standalone Report Designer allowing registered users to create content for the Report Server.

Regards,
Stef
