Hey Telerik team,

 

I've skimmed the forums and read Steve asking customers to explain some reasons why people may want a wpf viewer when you can imbed the win forms viewer within your wpf application.

 

Here are a few thoughts:

 

By having a wpf viewer, it will bring consistency to your product, a consistent learning curve for programmers, and make it a much more consistent implementation. Instead of using a work-around to see reports in wpf, it instead will natively support it through a wpf viewer. After all, most of us are using wpf to *get rid of* win forms, not keep win forms around!

 

So like others on the forums, I am asking that you please develop a wpf viewer for the telerik reporting product. To put it into perspective, this current work-around is like suggesting that if you want to have a text box control in a wpf application, you can do this by referring to a Visual Basic 5 text box within your wpf application. Sure it works, but the engineering in general is a bit of a hack.

 

 

Bill

Hello Bill,

Thank you for sharing your opinion with us and with the community. We do not have plans to create a native WPF viewer at this time, but we would surely have your thoughts in mind if the interest for WPF report viewer grows and we decide to implement it.

Best wishes,
Steve
