Hi,
We are using Telerik Reporting Q3 2007. 
 
- How can i load a saved report dynamically at run time?
- Is there any progress about save a report definition in outer storage (like xml-file) 
- When will your Report object (Telerik.Reporting.Report)  be supporting serializing / deserializing with soap or binary formatter or other way to serialize.

I followed the thread referenced above and it stated:

[July 14, 2008]
Currently there is no built-in support for serializing/de-serializing Telerik Reports in XML. Anyway our short term plans are to provide such in the next 6 months. Up until then you have to use the Telerik Report API and create your own serialization mechanism.

This post was nine months ago; have there been any updates regarding serialization?

Hi Chad,

Unfortunately due to the dynamic environment we work in, our plans have changed and other features have bumped up with higher priority. Don't get us wrong, we still have this request in our TODO list, but it would just be postponed for a subsequent release of the product.

Please excuse us for the inconvenience.

Has any progress been made on serializing a Report Definition?  I would like to be able to store reports in the database and load them dynamically.  I am considering trying to write my own routine to do this, but if this feature is planned in a future release, I do not want to waste my time.  Or, perhaps someone else has an alternative to this?

Thanks!

Hello Steve Muskopf,

Unfortunately we have not started working on this feature yet and currently it is not in our immediate plans. If you plan to make your routine for this purpose you should implement the IXmlSerializable interface in your reports and invoke some custom logic that walks through the report graph and writes the appropriate XML nodes and you can place that custom serialization logic in some utility class for better code reuse.

Hi Steve,

Do you have an example of how i can do this?
I used ISerializable and got this error Type 'Telerik.Reporting.Table' in Assembly 'Telerik.Reporting, Version=3.2.9.1211, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a9d7983dfcc261be' is not marked as serializable'

Thanks,

Maaike

Hello Maaike,

You should create your own wrapper objects and serialize/deserialize them instead.

Best wishes,

Any update on support for XML serialization of reports?  This feature would be very useful for our project.

Where is the status on this now?
In case you don't have an official solution, do you know any 3rd-party workarounds we can draw examples from?
Any one else out there know how to fix this?

Hello Mattias,

XML serialization of reports is available for quite some time now, see Serializing Report Definition in XML help article for more info. In fact since the release of the Report Designer in Q1 2012, you can directly create xml reports.
