    Hi. I have two reports that have the same page header, data sources, and etc., but different page footer. I need them to be in a single one report, because I need it to print them together.

    Here's the thing. In my view I was using:

    var typeReportSource = new TypeReportSource() { TypeName = "../Reports/Report1.trdx" };
    typeReportSource.Parameters.Add("IdYear", (object)(Convert.ToInt32(ViewBag.IdYear)));


    And I had the same for Report2. But now I need to have them both in a single Report, and I've read that I can use ReportBook.

    The examples I found show code like this:
     reportBook.Reports.Add(new Report1());
     reportBook.Reports.Add(new Report2());

    But I am working with the .trdx files, not with the Visual Studio Designer. So I can't figure out how to do it. I found some reads about Activator.CreateInstance

    I need some guidance. I am kind of stucked here.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ro,

    You can use a custom resolver in the Reporting REST service's CreateReportResolver method. In the resolver's Resolve method is received a string sent by the viewer's Based on this string you can determine which reports to get, deserialize TRDX files if needed, and add them in a ReportBook. Finally, you need to return a valid report source object.

    I hope the above information is helpful.

    I'm sorry, could someone from Telerik please post some code for this? The documentation for the HTML5 viewer is just atrociouscompared to the other Telerik offerings.
