Hi,

I have a winform application where a user can select in a combobox some categories. If a category is selected, the query related to that category will be executed and showed in a radgridview. Now I would like that the radgridview will be showed in a report by clicking on a button.

The clue is that I want different layouts for each category so I made 3 reports by the build-in designer.

Is it possible that when I click on the 'generate report' button, I bind the dataset I get from the radgridview to a report that was pre-made and show that report in a reportviewer on a form ?

I tried with the RadGridReportingLite libary you've provided but I can't get it to work cause there the reports are programmatically build.

Hoping op positive answer.
Thanks in advance.

The documentation (http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/designing-reports-connecting-data-to-report.html) shows the supported datasources, so yes you would be able to bind a report to a dataset.  In fact this is what the report is doing when you use the report wizard - it creates a dataset for you and populates it in the report constructor. What is the problem you've encountered or you have not tried it yet and just asking?

Cheers
