    Hi, I am new to Telerik and am wondering where the best resources for using the Standalone Report Designer with .trdx files are.

    The information at shows very different screenshots than what I see, and is helpful but only as a brief introduction to setting up a connection.

    I have attached a screenshot of what I see in the Report Designer. I am particularly interested in any information on the controls found under the Insert tab.

    Thank you for your time,

    Hello Ian,

    The How To: Use the Report Wizard to create a Band Report help article that you referred to actually shows the Visual Studio Report Designer. However, the Standalone Report Designer and Visual Studio Report Designer are very similar and the items under the Insert tab are available in both report designers.

    The designer menu in the Standalone Report Designer article is different because it changes according to the selected report item/report section. Since a Graph item is selected in the screenshot the designer menu displays the Graph Tools.

    Please check this short video which walks through the basics of creating a simple report and adding different report items to it in the Standalone Report Designer.

    For more information on the available report items, please refer to the Report Structure help articles.


    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.
