When I update to Reporting R3 2016, fields or text on most of my reports disappears. Before I spend a few hours trying to track the issue down, does anyone have any idea what has changed that would cause the text to disappear?

This kind of issue has been a problem with Telerik over the years. I don't understand how you can release a new version of a development library that breaks developers existing code. Now that you are owned by Progress, is there a plan to make your products more reliable?

Hi Richard,

I guess you are using events to modify the report after the data processing is started. If yes, please check Changes on items in report events are not applied.
Other important change is in the additional security settings of the ObjectDataSource - Telerik Reporting R3 2016 - Upgrade Issues with ObjectDataSource Component.


If I am wrong about the settings of the report, please open a support ticket and send us a demo project that reproduces the problem.

Actually, the only event I am using is OnNeedDataSource, where I should be able to set the data source. By setting Report.DataSource initially, I got the report to work, but it is not very intuitive.

Hi Richard,

If you are using a line like this.DataSource = DataObjectHere, please change it to:
//http://docs.telerik.com/reporting/data-items-need-data-source-event
private
void Report1_NeedDataSource(object  sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    (sender as Telerik.Reporting.Processing.Report).DataSource = dataObject;
}
The idea is that in events you should work only with the currently processed element and its exposed properties.

Hi M,

I believe you have already resolved the problem.
For anyone interested, please check ReportItem.parent.parent.DataObject equivalent in reporting 2016 R3.
