Hello Ali,

Currently it is not possible to style the built-in parameters area of Telerik Reporting. If you need to do that, you would have to create your own UI that you hook up to the report API.

All the best,

Hello Jonathan,

There seems to be some confusion - we have not stated in our previous post that we would work on introducing a way for styling the report area. In fact at the moment we do not have plans for the development of such feature so we cannot commit a timeframe for it.
If you want to style the parameters area, please create your own UI for this purpose and use the product API to hook it to the report.

Best wishes,
Steve

OK thanks :-)  What I like was that this section would generate automatically based on the report parameters as I create the report using Activator.getinstance based on the type returned form the name passed in on the querystring to the reportviewer:

Type reportType = Type.GetType("CorpsNETServer." + reportName + ", CorpsNETServer, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null");
Telerik.Reporting.Report report = (Telerik.Reporting.Report)Activator.CreateInstance(reportType);
this.ReportViewer1.Report = report;


I guess I could parse the report object and figure out the parameters and display accordingly.  I'll have to think about that one.  Got an example?

Cheers
Jonathan

Hello Jonathan,

In this case your task gets quite complicated as you really should examine the settings of each report parameter of the provided report and render appropriate editor.

The only example we may provide on this matter is the Telerik Reporting source code itself, as it deals with the same task (the viewers are not aware of the parameters in each report they render).

Just to mention that our XAML based viewers do provide a standard way to be custom styled: Creating Style in Expression Blend
