I'm trying to create a simple report with telerik reporting and ASP.NET MVC 4. I have several questions

I have created a sample report by binding to a sql datasource.

my report name is "Report2.cs" but i'm confused about .trdx report (why should i create a .trdx report)?

when trying to bind  the report to report viewer i use the below code.

@{
    ViewBag.Title = "reportview";
    Layout = "~/Views/Shared/_mainView.cshtml";
}

@section styles
{

    <link href="~/Content/ReportViewer/styles/ReportViewer-7.2.13.1016.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <style>
        #reportViewer1
        {
            position: absolute;
            left: 5px;
            right: 5px;
            top: 5px;
            bottom: 5px;
            overflow: hidden;
        }
    </style>
}

@section scripts
{
    <link href="~/Content/kendo/2013.2.716/kendo.common.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <link href="~/Content/kendo/2013.2.716/kendo.blueopal.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script src="~/Scripts/kendo/2013.2.716/kendo.all.min.js"></script>

    <link href="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/3.2.1/css/font-awesome.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <script src="~/Content/ReportViewer/js/ReportViewer-7.2.13.1016.js"></script>
    
}

@(Html.TelerikReporting().ReportViewer()
        .Id("reportViewer1")
        .TemplateUrl("/Content/ReportViewer/templates/telerikReportViewerTemplate.html")
        .ReportSource(new Telerik.Reporting.TypeReportSource() { TypeName = "MvcReportApplication.MyReport.Report2" })
        .ViewMode(Telerik.ReportViewer.Mvc.ViewModes.INTERACTIVE)
        .ScaleMode(Telerik.ReportViewer.Mvc.ScaleModes.SPECIFIC)
        .Scale(1.0)
        .PersistSession(true)
)

report is not displayed and i get the below error in console

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'replace' of undefined

Hi Chamara,

In the TypeName you should also provide the assembly name, like this: "MvcReportApplication.MyReport.Report2, MvcReportApplication". Also you will need to specify the service url, like this:
.ServiceUrl("api/reports/")

Regarding the trdx - you can create trdx report with the Report Designer, which works outside of Visual Studio. The trdx report is simply the serialized (xml) definition of the report. Since it is a single file and does not require VS if you have users that need to create reports it will fit better in your scenario. For more information about the Report Designer please check this help article and the related subarticles.

Hello Faris,

With the given ReportsControllerBase implementation you can pass path to TRDX reports or the assembly qualified name of a report. There are the two default resolvers, where if the first fails to resolve successfully the passed report description, the second resolver will be called.

For more details check this forum thread. Yo can also check the local demos installed by default under C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Reporting Q2 2014\Examples\CSharp.


I hope this information helps you.

Regards,
Stef
