Release History

Progress® Telerik® Report Server R2 2022 (

May 11, 2022

Web Report Designer is now compatible with the theming and widgets of the latest generation of Kendo UI (Kendo UI R1 2022 SP1+)

  • Web Report Designer now uses the latest generation of Kendo UI themes and widgets - Kendo UI R1 2022 SP1 (version 2022.1.301).

Web Report Designer now provides a comprehensive search function

  • Web Report Designer introduces a great UX improvement - the ability to search throughout all the designer areas: components, existing report items, or available properties. Now you can add a new component, navigate to the required report item or change a property value with just a few keystrokes.

The Report Server Manager now has improved views, supporting different page sizes and custom column sortings

  • The views containing tables/grids in Report Server Manager now allow users to set page size and apply sorting, which will be persisted in the local browser storage.

What's Improved

  • Reordering reports in report books from the design surface has better visualization of the place of the dropped item
  • IDefinitionStorage methods are now asynchronous
  • Editors that invoke Assets Manager have better design and improved UX
  • Table columns in Assets Manager grid view now support resizing
  • ReportServer.HttpClient now exposes a Publish method
  • The Reports node in Assets Manager now supports category hierarchy

What's Changed

  • Telerik.WebReportDesigner.Services.IDefinitionStorage interface is extended with new members to support more scenarios for working asynchronously with report definitions. All custom implementations of this interface need to include the new members.
  • Telerik.WebReportDesigner.Services.IResourceStorage interface now extends a new interface: Telerik.WebReportDesigner.Services.IAssetsStorage. All explicit implementations of IResourceStorage interface must reference the new interface.

Desktop Designer

  • A NullReferenceException might be thrown when trying to add a new column in an existing Table or Crosstab item
  • Crosstab layout gets broken when inserting a child group and there is a spanned cell across the reference group item and the new group's item
  • Crosstab layout gets broken when inserting a column/row after a column/row containing merged cells and not crossing the Body
  • Crosstab layout gets broken when inserting a column/row before or after a column/row so that the new column/row crosses a merged cell
  • Selecting a column/row in the table designer does not behave correctly when there are merged cells in it
  • When a column/row containing a merged cell and crossing the Body is selected and a new column or a row is inserted before/after it, it gets positioned before/after the merged cell
