Currently, it seems you can only use User Functions that are declared at the current report level.  All of the reports I make extend from a custom "BaseReport" (that itself extends from Telerik.Reporting.Report).  Within this BaseReport class I have static methods that I would like to use as User Functions.

Is there a way (without duplicating code in all my ancestor classes), to use methods in base classes as User Functions?

Hello Stephen McDaniel,

I am afraid that the current version considers only the public static non-void methods of the report as user function and allows them to be used in the binding expression. We have plans to improve the whole data processing mechanism in one of the subsequent versions of the control, so we'll do our best to address this limitation as well.

Please excuse us for the temporary inconvenience.

Sincerely yours,
Svetoslav

Has there been any improvements in this area?  We are having to continually copy functions manually between reports.

As you can see in the User Functions article (http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/designing-report-user-functions.html), there are Assembly scoped user functions, so that you do not have to copy a function between reports, as long as they reside in the same assembly. This post is pretty old and that functionality has been available for quite some time now!

Cheers

Hello Dan,

Both the .chm help and online documentation have search available, so please use it to find what you are looking for. A quick search for "user functions" finds the correct link to this topic - User Functions
