1. There is significant difference in edit expresion between Desktop Application and Web Designer.
For example Html TextBox in Desktop Application edit value is RichTextBox and Web Designer edit value is just textarea .

Is any workaround to use rich text box in edited value in web designer?

For example Can i bind to some event and open custom window (defined by me)

2. Its seems that localization strings dont work for this popup (edit value). (few strings are translated but many not)
I've changed all properties from https://docs.telerik.com/reporting/designing-reports/report-designer-tools/web-report-designer/localizing-the-web-report-designer




Additionaly can i translate content of notofifaction errors/warnings ?

Hello Mateusz,

Currently, the editor windows cannot be modified externally. We plan to allow more customization options in the future - Make Web Report Designer UI customizable (telerik.com), however, It is unlikely that this would include allowing to completely replace the window with a custom one. With that being said, we plan on improving the editor window for the HtmlTextBox item in the future but there is no clear date yet, you may open up a new FR to increase the priority of this task - Progress® Telerik® Reporting Feedback Portal.

Regarding not all strings being localizable, there are indeed some that are not yet supported such as the expression editor category types(Constants, Functions, etc.) because they are keywords. We do not plan on changing this currently but it can considered so please feel free to open up an FR about this if it would be an important feature to you.

Regarding the error/warning messages, there are already some that can be localized but not all are supported yet. We will gradually be adding the missing messages to the string resources file of the Web Report Designer.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Regards,
Dimitar

Thank You for your response.

I have more issues regarding to editor window.
In desktop when i click some function or field from service, editor filled with {},
for example

when i do the same in web designer

but when editor field is not empty, clicking field adds field with {}



and there is biggger problem

when i want pick up fields from service
in desktop works ok, double click take whole path (from nested json)


but in web designer can not retrive whole path, copy only main root and target field
this should be Fields.value.yyyy.FIeldName and instead there is Fields.FieldName

Hello Mateusz,

Regarding the first issue, this could indeed be improved. When there are no characters, the editor assumes that you wish to write an expression so it adds a "=" as the first character but when there are already characters, it recognizes that it should use the embedded expressions syntax so it behaves like on the desktop application. Please feel free to open an FR for changing this behavior and we will likely approve it - Progress® Telerik® Reporting Feedback Portal.

Regarding the second problem, I was unable to reproduce it locally, I am afraid. I used the latest version of the Web Report Designer, would you please share which version you use? There was previously such a problem but we fixed it with the R1 2023 release earlier this year - Web Report Designer Incorrectly Assigns Nested Properties (telerik.com), if you are using an older version, please upgrade and test again. Or you may test with our live demo - Web Report Designer Demo | Telerik Reporting.

Please let me know if you have any additional problems.
