In reading, it appears that Telerik supports .NET 5 (.net core 5) and would like to migrate but do not see any documentation around it.   

My current solution is:

Full Framework project so I can use the VS designer to design the reports.  Each report consists of a .cs, .Designer.cs, and .resx file.

.NET 2.0 standard project with a file link to those reports (not a copy) for unit testing and consumption

example in the project file:

<ItemGroup>
    <Compile Include="..\OtherProject\Telerik\Report.cs" Link="Telerik\Report.cs" />
   <Compile Include="..\OtherProject\Telerik\Report.Designer.cs" Link="Telerik\Report.Designer.cs" />
   <EmbeddedResource Include="..\OtherProject\Telerik\Report.resx" Link="Telerik\Report.resx" />
</ItemGroup>

.Net Core 3.1 app consuming the .NET 2.0 standard project.

 

How do I migrate those reports from the .NET 2.0 standard project to a native .NET 5 project while maintaining the designer capability?

Hi Dave,

I confirm that now we support .NET 5. You may check our dedicated .NET 5 demos released with our latest version 15.0.21.120. Their default deployment folder is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Telerik Reporting R1 2021\Examples\CSharp\.NET 5".

I'm afraid we don't yet provide a Visual Studio Report Designer for .NET Core or .NET 5 projects. There is a quite popular feature request for the same - Make Visual Studio designer work with .NET Core (a.k.a. SDK-style) projects. You may vote for it to further increase its priority. The feature is in our plans for year 2021.

Meanwhile, you may use the workaround from the KB How to use Visual Studio Report Designer to edit CS Reports in .Net Core Projects.

Here are also other resources related to .NET 5:
