I have seen a code snippet in the tutorials but that doesn't really help in creating reports at run time.

I have a dataset which is being generated at run time.  The program does not know what data is going to be in the dataset at design time. However we need to generate reports during run time based on the data in the dataset. Obvoisly, I cannot design the report before hand and so need to design the report in the code. I have researched a little bit but doesn't seem to get the full code sample that can get this done.

Any leads to this end would be much appreciated. What I am looking for is a full sample webpage code for generating a report from a dataset.

Hi Anil K,

There is no hidden code for you to search for. If you use the designer to create the report -  all code is placed in the InitializeComponent() method. Š¢herefore the best way to learn how to generate the report is by looking at the auto-generated code. You should play with the Designer and see what code is generated in the code-behind. Also do not miss the "API Reference" section of our Help.

I have seen the code in the InitializeComponent() for a report. But doesn't help how to proceed further. There is a .resx file too. When you create a dynamic report how you handle this file. Can you help get a very simple end to end code sample / project that shows a dynamic report being created completely programmatically. You have some info in this link http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/programmatic-control-of-reports.html but that gives bits and pieces of info. a complete working sample / project would be greatly helpful.
