Hi, I have seen several posts on this and I cannot seem to solve this problem after trying what I found in those posts. I have Reporting installed on my VS 2008 system (running XP) and I successfully created my report and now want to add it to my webapp. I read that I must add the Report Viewer and that it can be found in the VS Toolbox. I have a Radcontrols for ASP.Net section in toolbox but nothing called Reportviewer. I have a Reporting section in my toolbox but nothing Telerik-related. I looked in the General section and also the Standard section of the toolbox to no avail.
I have uninstalled Reports and reinstalled Reports (with VS 2008 NOT running) and still do not see the Reportview control. I have reset the Toolbox and this did not change anything.

My VS menu bar has a Telerik menu item which has a Reporting item that only points to an UpgradeWizard utility.

thanks for your help.

Hi John,

In order to see the web report viewer control in the Visual Studio Toolbox, you should be in the context of the web page. Check the following KB article for more info: Telerik Reporting Toolbox items are missing.

Hello Prassin,

Did you reset the ToolBox as suggested? If this did not help, please provide us with the installer log, instructions are available in the referenced KB  article.

Kind regards,

Hello,

The information is pretty straight-forward: run Telerik Reporting installer from command prompt with logging information enabled:

msiexec /i path_to\Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2012_DEV.msi -l*xv install.log

and attach the log file to a support ticket.

All the best,
Steve

Dear Support,

I have read carefully through this thread and it appears to me that customer support does not understand what the issue is here.   To state the issue more clearly than Scott, who started this thread will be difficult but I will try.  The Report Viewer control is not available is Visual Studio even while in the context of the web page, and neither is the Telerik Reporting Tab.  There is nothing, except, as Scot said, "My VS menu bar has a Telerik menu item which has a Reporting item that only points to an UpgradeWizard utility."  That is all, there is nothing else related to Telerik Reporting anywhere to be seen.  

I too must decide whether or not to use this utility in a short period of time.  From what I have already read, it appears that Telerik Reporting will be good fit with what we are trying to do.  Therefore, I ask that you help me fix this issue, and not refer me to another thread.

Thanks,

Carlos

Hello Carlos,

We do understand the issue that has been reported in this thread and the KB article that was given in the very first reply is accurate and has helped numerous clients (its rating speaks for itself). I'll try to paraphrase as well:

Choose "Reset Toolbox" from the VS Toolbox context menu and once it finishes, open a Telerik Report in the VS designer and verify that you see a "Telerik Reporting Q2 2012" Tab in it. If it is not immediately available, do you see it if you select "Show All" from the Toolbox context menu? Also are you able to work with the VS Telerik Reporting Menu e.g.. what happens if you click on the Upgrade Wizard?

Missing or not working items in Telerik Reporting menu could mean that the Telerik Reporting VSPackage is not correctly loaded on your machine. Please launch the Visual Studio IDE with the following command that should fix the problem: Devenv.exe /ResetSkipPkgs. If this does not help, please reinstall Telerik Reporting
by running Telerik Reporting installer from command prompt with logging information enabled:

msiexec /i path_to\Telerik_Reporting_Q2_2012_SP1_DEV.msi -l*xv install.log

and attach the log file to this support ticket. Have the following in mind:

  1. Make sure there are no Visual Studio instances running.
  2. Make sure you're logged in as administrator. If not please elevate the rights for the Telerik Reporting installer prior starting the install.

All the best,
Steve

Hi Steve, we are testing the telerik report with silverlight and we have a issue regarding the report book.
We can´t create neither on design or run-time a report book because the control is missing.
We have already tried the solutions in this page except the last one because what we have is a .exe and not a .msi.

We are willing to buy the product in the near future but this functionality is a must have.

Can you help us or someone from the development team?

Thanks in advanced.

Hi Ricardo,

There is no ReportBook control that you can use for Silverlight application. You have to create a custom class that inherits the Report Book as shown in the following code snippet and can be later assign to a report viewer. Because the ReportViewer.ReportSource property is of type Telerik.Reporting.IReportDocument you can assign a class that inherits Telerik.Reporting.ReportBook to the viewer and it would display it just fine. 
Copy Code
public class ReportBook : Telerik.Reporting.ReportBook
{
    public ReportBook()
    {
        this.Reports.Add(new DashBoard());
        this.Reports.Add(new ProductSales());
    }
}

An example of Silverlight Report Book can be found in the demos that came with your installation of Telerik Reporting (Start - > Programs -> Telerik -> Reporting -> Visual Studio Examples). Check out the ReportBook.cs.

Hi Gokul,

Your inquiry is not related to the subject discussed in this thread, so we kindly ask you to restrain from "kidnapping" threads in such a manner. You can find more information on specifying a report for a report viewer in the respective help section based on the application you're working with e.g. for web site/web application, check How to: Add report viewer to a web page help article.
