Hi.  Fairly new to Telerik, using Telerik Q3 2012 on a Win 7 64 bit machine running Visual Studios 2010.  Is it possible to put a tab grid on the report canvas so that multiple reports can be created, each on it's own tab, but all in a single Telerik report?
Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

The report definition can contain only reporting items, and the ReportViewer control purpose is just to display that report document and provide means to interact with it. You can place a separate ReportViewer in distinct tabs or display multiple reports at once gathered in a ReportBook. An example of ReportBook can be found in the online demos and the local demos, placed by default under C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Reporting <VERSION>\Examples.

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Hi Stef,

I looked over ReportBook example and I want to use Telerik Designer(.trdx) reports.  Is it possible? If so how can i implement it ?

i tried my chance like that but it didn't worked :)
this.Reports.Add(new UriReportSource() { Uri = @"C:\Users\mustafa\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\OnlineKursKayit\OnlineKursKayit\ReportBook\ReportBook.cs" });

Thanks
Mustafa

Hello Mustafa,

Yes, you can use .trdx files with ReportBook. You should deserialize the .trdx files and add the report instances to ReportBook. For more information see the Serializing Report Definition in XML help article.

Hello Mustafa,

The following sample code demonstrates how to combine trdx reports in a single ReportBook instance:
public class ReportBook : Telerik.Reporting.ReportBook
{
    public ReportBook()
    {
        Report report1 = DeserializeReport(@"Report1.trdx");
        this.Reports.Add(report1);
  
        Report report2 = DeserializeReport(@"Report2.trdx");
        this.Reports.Add(report2);  
    }
  
    public Report DeserializeReport(string path)
    {
        System.Xml.XmlReaderSettings settings = new System.Xml.XmlReaderSettings();
        settings.IgnoreWhitespace = true;
  
        using (System.Xml.XmlReader xmlReader = System.Xml.XmlReader.Create(path, settings))
        {
            Telerik.Reporting.XmlSerialization.ReportXmlSerializer xmlSerializer = new Telerik.Reporting.XmlSerialization.ReportXmlSerializer();
            Telerik.Reporting.Report report = (Telerik.Reporting.Report)xmlSerializer.Deserialize(xmlReader);
 
            return report;
        }
    }
}

Hi Nasko

I've tried your solution for days.I took "Format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 0" error . Finally I fixed it. But now; toggle document map button is not active. Instead of it, first report shown in first page, second report shown in second page

And also SubReport path normally "C:\Users\mustafa\Desktop\Reports(trdx)\SubReport.trdx" but in running time it give an error that
"An error has occurred while processing SubReport 'subReport1': 'C:\Program Files (x86)\IIS Express\SubReport.trdx' file can not found."

Have you an idea about these two problems?

Thanks,
Mustafa

Hello Mustafa,

Each report in the ReportBook starts on a new page. You can still use the Document Map feature by specifying the DocumentMap property for each report in the book.
About paths to sub reports, double-check if the URI of the UriReportSource is set to an absolute path. If not the path will be resolved based on the start application. You can edit paths at run-time as well, by obtaining the SubReport item and resetting its ReportSource e.g.:
Report report1 = DeserializeReport(@"Report1.trdx");
var subreport = report1.Items.Find("subReport1",true)[0] as SubReport;
(subreport.ReportSource as UriReportSource).Uri = newUri;
 this.Reports.Add(report1);

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Hello Mustafa,

Check if you have set each report's DocumentMap property to a string that will be displayed beside and used for navigation within the viewer.
