The Standalone Report Designer is a mature, feature-complete tool for authoring reports. With this release, we ship a version of it compiled for .NET 6.0 runtime. This enables you, our client developers, to extend it with User functions & Custom aggregate functions residing in assemblies targeting .NET. The business objects contained in .NET assemblies can also be used in ObjectDataSource components through the convenient wizard-like interface. More information about the currently supported features can be found in the Standalone Report Designer documentation article.
The report authors can now start using the Web Report Designer even more easily with a built-in onboarding experience. When a user launches the designer for the first time, this onboarding experience will highlight the main tools and what each of their purposes is. The end-users will get used to the designer and the report authoring process in an accelerated manner.
We improved the user experience when editing a Table or Crosstab item in the Web Report Designer by introducing convenient handles that allow the selection of a whole row or column. The handles also allow executing all the actions exposed on the table, e.g., inserting or deleting a column or adding a table group.
All the Report Viewer controls may consume a REST reports service to display reports. You can now create a .NET Core+ web application to host reports without writing a single line of code. The dedicated project template generates all the code instead. Just add the reports so that the service makes them available for the end-users.The WinForms and WPF report viewer item templates for .NET Core+ now utilize this project template if their configuration adds a remote reporting engine.
The Blazor technology is the natural choice of C# developers targeting the Web. Telerik Reporting now covers this technology better by building a brand new, Native Blazor Report Viewer control. We implemented the viewer on top of our beloved Telerik UI for Blazor component library. It brings a fluent user experience that blends with the rest of your Blazor application using the same input controls and stylization mechanism. However, users should understand embedding the Report Viewer control requires a Telerik UI for Blazor license. This first version of the viewer comes with all the core functionality for previewing an interactive report but lacks some auxiliary features like Search in the report content or navigating back from a drill-through action.
The report engine can now generate separate Excel worksheets based on the page breaks in the report definition. A dedicated device info setting named SplitWorksheetOnPageBreak turns on this functionality. It works similarly to the so-called “soft page breaks.” Apply it to place different report sections or table groups in separate worksheets.
We have added a new theme for our WPF report viewer. It is inspired by Windows 11 and comes in two flavors—Dark and Light. By a long-running tradition, we have set it as a default theme in our WPF examples, but with a twist: it will detect the current mode of your Windows and will automatically apply the Dark or Light variation of the theme.
With the November 2022 update, we’ve released day-zero support for .NET 7 for Telerik .NET products. This also includes Telerik Reporting when targeting Windows deployment. The Linux deployment is still not supported but we target mid-2023 to have it covered as well.
