Hello,

I understand that currently, Telerik Reporting supports only .NET Framework projects in the Visual Studio Designer due to limitations of .NET Core 3.0 support.  However, I'm wondering, will this be addressed when Microsoft releases .NET 5 later this year?  Will we be able to design Telerik Reports in Visual Studio for .NET 5 projects?

Thanks.

Hello Deepak,

Currently, there is no design-time support for type reports in .NET Core projects.  You may find an explanation of the problems we hit in the Make Visual Studio designer work with .NET Core (a.k.a. SDK-style) projects feature request. I suggest also to vote for this feature.

Recently, we tested to use the code of a CS report created in the Visual Studio in .NET Framework (e.g. copied and pasted the report code in a .NET Core ClassLibrary project), and we were able to use the report as it is, without removing the designer-specific code. This indicates that the .NET Core team is moving the design-time support forward. We need some more functionality to make our designer operative though. We are tracking the .NET Core team updates on their Windows Forms designer and will do our best to include VS Report designer support for .NET Core as soon as all the needed functionality is implemented.

Hi Neli,

Thanks for your reply.  Wondering if there's any update on this topic since .NET 5 RC was recently released.

Hi Deepak,

We understand the importance of all devs willing to design their reports in VS, however, I am afraid that the future is not in our planend at the moment yet. Meantime use can consider using the Standalone designer, or create the reports in our Visual Studio designer, then add the CS file of the report in .NET Core Class Library.

Hi Deepak,

Our plans do include the Visual Studio Core designer for 2021. You may follow the feature request for updates.

Meanwhile, the workaround that you may use is explained in the KB article How to use Visual Studio Report Designer to edit CS Reports in .Net Core Projects.
