    Does Telerik Report Designer support .NET Core (2.1). Does it have dependency on .NET framework (or) .NET Standard?

    Hello Raji,

    Our Visual Studio Report Designer supports only .NET projects. It has dependencies on .NET framework that prevent it from handling .NET Core projects.
    Note that Reports designed in Visual Studio Designer are supported in ASP.NET Core projects. Our recommendation is to create the reports in a .NET Class Library (or our dedicated Report Library project type) and reference that library in your report service or viewer project. More information can be found in Asp.Net Core 2.0 forum thread.

    Hi, Are there any updates for Telerik Reporting to support .NET Core 2.2? Are there any underlying dependencies on .Net standard or .Net Framework?

    Hi Raji,

    Telerik Reporting is supporting .Net Core 2.1 or newer versions including 2.2 and 3.0. The recommended report definitions are trdx and trdp that are authored with the Standalone Report Designer. Due to the framework limitations the Visual Studio Report Designer is not supported. For more information on the topic see .NET Core Support

    Forgive me, but this makes no sense.  Your Visual Studio Designer CAN make and compile .NET Core assemblies.  

    You just need to change the way to create the assembly files and compile them.  You already have the c# report files, you just need to use the "dotnet" command line to compile the .NET Core assemblies.

    Please implement this feature, the VS Designer is so much better than the stand alone designer.

    Thank you,

    Karl

    Hi Karl,

    We are eager to implement this feature as it is required by many users. Generally, our Visual Studio Report designer registers our custom components/types and utilizes the Visual Studio Component Model designer functionality to visualize and edit reports. For this purpose, we need the VS designer support for .NET Core components that is not fully available yet - check Component designer does not display when targeting .NET Core/.NET Standard.

    Thank you for your reply, I understand the problem now.  That issue is over a year old, guessing there are many challenges .NET Core brings to Visual Studio.  When VS is based on .NET 5, then this will get solved, that will really help companies like you, only having to support a single version of .NET.  Dreaming...
