Hi Everyone;

Suppose our application needs to provide user a way for them to create an email template that some content are static and some content come from database and sort of creates a email-marge. Like:

Dear <<Customer.FirstName>>;
We would like to notify that your balance amount of <Customer.Balance>> is over due.


The content is not created by developer like a regular report where developer designs the report and binds database fields in the report. In this case the user enters the content and anything in << >> (I only used this as a sample) comes from database at runtime and produces an email to be sent out.

What's the best way to offer end user an email mailmerge?

Thanks!

Hello Ben,

Depending on your requirements, you can use report parameters to gather the user input for the fields, or use custom UI and finally render the data into a report and mail it further.

Having changes in the report lines directly is interactivity feature more native for controls as WYSIWYG editors or document previewers. Depending on the used technology you can use our Silverlight RadRichTextBox, ASP.NET AJAX RadEditor, Kendo Editor for example.

Let us know if you have any further questions.
