I am including an application with WinForms and .net core, at the same time I want to include telerik reports showing them with ReportViewver in Winforms, This application I am publishing and I run it in Linux and mono, The application opens but at the moment of generating the report ReportViewver indicates the following error:

Gdi32.dll assembly: <unknown assembly> type: <unknown type> member: (null)

Hi Josue,

From the error, it seems that the libgdiplus is not installed. You can check Using Telerik Reporting in Applications on Linux Platform section.

Note that we haven't tested such a scenario and we cannot guarantee that it will work.

Thanks for your reply. I have this libgdiplus and libc6-dev library installed on my ubuntu 18.04 linux distribution. I realized the error was because I was targeting the .net framweork telerik.reporting and telerik.reportviewver.winforms libraries. Now I am pointing to the correct libraries for .net Core and .net standard and the error that appears to me is the following:

Unhandled Exception:
System.TypeLoadException: Could not set up parent class, due to: Could not load type of field 'Telerik.ReportViewer.WinForms.ReportViewerBase:printerSettings' (32) due to: Could not load file or assembly 'System.Drawing.Common, Version=4.0.1.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc7b13ffcd2ddd51' or one of its dependencies. assembly:/PATH/Telerik.ReportViewer.WinForms.dll type:ReportViewerBase member:(null)

Hi Josue,

You can test this approach or another from Can't use System.Drawing.Common in microsoft/dotnet:runtime Stack Overflow thread.
