Hi all. We're developing a WPF project with Telerik Rad Controls for WPF and Telerik Open Access for our ORM. Now, we're moving to the reporting phase, and we want to use Telerik Reporting as well, but there are a couple of questions that I need to ask before we can decide to use it over Reporting Services:

  1. Does your ReportViewer support both local and remote processing modes? We need to be able to handle reports both locally and from a reporting server.
  2. Do you have an auto refresh feature for the report, like th one ein Reporting Services?

Thanks a lot.

Hello Hugo,

Thank you for your interest in Telerik Reporting and up to your questions:
  • Telerik Reporting is an embedded reporting engine and not a standalone report server, thus usually it is part of a Desktop, Web etc. application.
  • there is no AutoRefresh functionality available. As far as I can see this is only applicable for the HTML rendering extension, so basically you can mimic that by introducing your own timer (or even some 3rd party control like the time from the ASP.NET AJAX suite) and call the RefreshReport() method of the web viewer to refresh the report.

Sincerely yours,
Steve
