Hi I am thinking about picking up the Telerik Reporting component.  However I am using other third party WinForm controls (Dundas Graph and Mind Fusion Flowchart Control).  Am I able to use these controls within the Telerik Report?  I spoke with Mindfusion a while back and they noted that:

"you can use the Flowchart.NET image and SVG export features to create diagram images and embed them into any kind of reporting tool that has bitmap or SVG support. To create image or SVG files, use the Diagram.CreateImage method, or the SvgExporter class"

I have not worked with a reporting tool before and I am not sure how you incorporate existing Visual Studio controls or 3rd party controls into the ouput of the report.

Thanks

Hi ExcelMonkey,

As a new user to our Reporting solution and Reporting products in general, we suggest you pay a thorough visit to the online resources linked below:

Online examples

Online documentation

KB articles

Code library

Video Tutorials

Blog posts


Of course, if you cannot find the information you're looking for there, you can browse the public forum as well in order to find specific information/code sample concerning an aspect of the Reporting features. There are numerous threads which can get you started/assist you through the development process.
As to your exact inquiry, the advice of the 3rd party company you mentioned is correct. Once you have their chart saved as image file, you can use our PictureBox report item to display it in the report. I've prepared a code library which covers similar scenario and shows the asp:chart control in our reporting product: Use asp:chart in Telerik Reports.

All the best,
Steve
