    Hi, we currently have an Asp.Net MVC application and we use a lot of Kendo UI components. There is a new requirement to create a dashboard for our application, all the data for the dashboard is in a database view.  I would like to make use of Telerik reporting to show a report based on some of the data which is returned in the view. Also, I would like the report to refresh every 5 seconds. Is this possible in Telerik reporting and if so where do I start?

    Hi Abe,

    Telerik Reporting can connect to virtually any database through ADO.NET data adapter or OleDB/ODBC connections. Even better, in case you don't have such driver at hand, we got you covered - our product ships with a set of ODBC drivers, provided by DataDirect, allowing you to connect to some of the most popular databases. The driver set includes IBM DB2, so although we haven't tested this specific scenario, there shouldn't be any problem connecting the report to that database.

    About updating the viewer on a specified interval - we do not have such functionality out-of-the-box, but a simple JavaScript function that calls the refresh() command of the ReportViewer should do.

    I would suggest to go through the Getting Started articles that show how to design your report and connect it to data. Should you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
