         Dear Admins.

    I'm Developing Application Using Telerik Winform UI R2 2019 SP1. But i was using Microsoft RDLC report's for Printing and Displaying the Results.

    But i was to Shift to Telerik Reports.

    After spending too much time i was not able to create a single report. Did not find any to the point tutorial for creating report.

    I'm Using SqlServer Database.

    Please if possible provide any step by step helping material.

    thank you

    Hello Kashif,

    I recommend to visit our First steps articles which demonstrate how to create, set up, and publish a sample demo report in the Standalone Report designer:

    Creating the Demo report

    Setting the page header

    Populating the table with data - here you can find how to connect to SQL DataSource and how to display the data in a Table item

    - Creating the graph

    Setting the page footer

    Integrating the report in Visual Studio Application

    Parameterizing the graph

    Adding the column graph

    If you use the Visual Studio Report Designer, then you need to create a new project from type Report Library and basically, designing reports there is the same as in the Standalone designer.

    I have a UI project. All the DataEntry Form designed in that project.

    If i create a separate project for Report Library, then how to call any library report from UI project.

    Please give any example.

    I have 2 Data sources in the stand alone designer.

    I can easily draw table from 1 data source.

    But the other data source have the information which i want to display is the Header Section. How to Do this.

    Hello Kashif,

    About:  If I create a separate project for Report Library, then how to call any library report from UI project.

    You can add a reference in the UI project to the Report Library. Then if you would like to display the report through some of our report viewers, you need to choose Select type report definition created in Visual Studio (Step #7 from Integrating the Report in VS App article).

    You may also check our demos - they can be found in (Telerik Reporting installation folder)\Examples\CSharp (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Telerik Reporting R3 2019\Examples\CSharp). The project is CSharp.WinFormsDemo. The Windows Forms viewer displays reports defined in the CSharp.ReportLibrary project.

     

    About your last question:

    You may use another Table/List to display the data from the other data source. Note that you can add a table in the Report Header section but not in the Page Header. To show the Report Header, right-click outside the report area -> Report Header. For more information refer to the Report Structure article.

    You can also check the attached report which demonstrates the approach.
