Telerik Reporting

Release History

Telerik Reporting R1 2017 (version

January 17, 2017


  • All report viewers provide support for displaying tooltips in a report viewer's native rendering technology.

Visual Studio 2017 Support

  • We now experimentally support Visual Studio 2017, making sure your development experience will remain great when designing reports using the upcoming Microsoft IDE.

Report Book Design Support

  • The updated ReportBook supports report sources and enables authoring within the Standalone Report Designer.

Advanced PageNumber and PageCount based on expressions

  • We introduced advanced built-in PageNumber and PageCount functions allowing to reset the page number and count on any page based on the data. This allows for flexible page section content like separate page numbering for each group/item/section occurrence, "continues on next page" logic, simultaneous overall report book numbering and specific numbering inside each of its reports.

Table of Contents in Report Book

  • All reports included in a Report Book can merge their Table of Contents sections into a single one that will be shown before or after the Report Book content.

Office2016 theme for WPF Report Viewer

  • The WPF report viewer diversity of available themes have expanded with two new entries: Office2016 and Office2016Touch.

Collapsible Page Sections

  • The empty space will be reclaimed from the main report content when page section is conditionally hidden.

User-friendly Report Server support for viewers and item templates

  • The report viewers can connect to a report server instance in design time and obtain a list of available reports to choose from. The same applies when setting up a new report viewer using item templates.

Page Sections Behavior

  • When hidden, a page section (both PageHeader and PageFooter) will no longer reserve their space. Instead, their space gets collapsed, so that it gets used by the rest of the report content.
