Hello,
Will TRDX defined reports load  faster  then traditional report load times? I am hoping to prebuild reports that the user will need to page through very quickly, with minimal delay between pages. Will TRDX reports help by speeding up the initial load time for the initial and each subsequent report.

Does the Document Map allow only the first page to display and not pre-build/compile the other pages until they are clicked on? Or does the report Book allow this. What I am trying to accomplish is to load the first page and each subsequent page in the quickest possible way. My report is a simple layout without too much data but there can be upto 50-100 pages.

Thanks!

Hi Jeff,

There won't be a noticeable difference in the overall time between using .trdx  and .NET classes. The most time consuming tasks are the processing and the rendering and not the reading of the report definition itself. The trdx files are more convenient because they allow you to change the reports without the need to recompile assemblies. 
No matter if you use ReportBook or DocumentMap, the Report engine will always render the whole report and then just send the pages to the viewer.
