Hi,

This is the first time that I will work with , the company has this product and they request me to develop the following. So  asking about the advice of which component is the best to use.

This is the situation: I'm going to run a process to get all the data that I need, once the process has finished I have to create multiple PDF reports with tables and graphics and it has to be programmatically so there will be no UI.

The company has not report designer but ┬┐is it possible to define the format of the table by code?

Thanks for your opinion.

Denis

Hello Denis,

Which components to use depends very much on the requirements of the created report. Telerik Reporting is rich in multi-functional and flexible reporting items, including Table/CrossTable, and Graph (for chart generation). Nesting and grouping is supported for user-friendly presentation of complex data.

In Telerik Reporting it is possible to create all reporting items programmatically.
I would suggest you to create what you need using the Visual Studio Report Designer and then review the automatically generated code in (ReportName).Designer.cs/vb file. In the InitializeComponent() method you can find all the code used to create the report with the Disigner. This method is called by the Report Constructor, where you can add your code to create additional elements/functionality/etc.
The Reporting API Reference is also available for details.

Let us know if we can be of any further help.

Regards,
Todor
