Effortless report creation for end-users and developers
The Telerik Report Designer empowers report authors with creating, editing and sharing ad-hoc reports. It is a standalone Windows tool powered by the Telerik Reporting engine, which uses the latest UI standards to assist power users with the process of creating reports, analyzing data on their machines, and exporting and sharing report documents. The Report Designer is part of the Telerik Reporting package. It is a single EXE file, which simplifies its distribution, and does not require installation. Visual Studio is not required to create reports with the Telerik Report Designer.
The Report Design Canvas
The stand-alone report designer offers a "What You See Is What You Get" (WYSIWYG) canvas for report generation, which allows users and developers to add and edit charts, tables, and other report items, style them, fill them with data, and add calculations. Item rotation, in-line editing, report zooming, drag-and-drop data binding, and a slew of additional features are also available directly in the report designer.
The Report Designer comes with a RibbonBar which contains all needed functions, which is intuitive and easy to use. The multi-document interface allows authoring and viewing multiple reports simultaneously. There are additional tools for easier report authoring: Report/Data/Group Explorer, Property Browser, Report/Table/Crosstab Wizards, editors, etc.
Report and Print Preview
The interactive Report Preview is meant for onscreen viewing of the report and allows for interaction with the report. The Print Preview is dedicated for printing purposes only and shows the report as it would appear after being printed or exported. It does not offer interactivity.
Populating with Data
The Report Designer can display data from any SQL database (incl. MS SQL Server, Oracle, etc.) and Microsoft Analysis Services cubes.
Deploy Reports to Web, Desktop, and Cloud
Telerik Reporting offers ASP.NET, Silverlight, WPF, and Windows Forms report viewers in case you need to deliver reports created with the Report Designer to a business application.
Excellent Data Presentation and Analysis
Telerik Reporting gives you the presentation tools to display data so that you can focus on what's important: analysis and knowledge. Easy to set up charts, cross tabs, and aggregates provide you with the ultimate tool for data analysis. You also have full control over the data formatting and its management: using conditional formatting, sorting, filtering, and even grouping.
Interactive Reports for Probing Data
Interactive reports give end-users the freedom to explore data in a visual and interactive way and to gain insight on how aggregates were derived, what does each high-level number mean, and view the raw data pertaining to a high level concept. The interactivity features are available in all report viewers and designers.
Export Reports to 20+ Formats
Regardless of your business requirements, chances are that Telerik Reporting supports the export format of your choice: PDF, Excel 97-2010, Word, PowerPoint, RTF, CSV, MHTML, and GDI+ (JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, etc.)
Technical Support, Resources, and a Community to Rely On
Telerik provides a great variety of resources: demos, videos, extensive documentation, and more. Telerik also offers superior technical support, for which it is famous industry wide. One of the biggest .NET communities is also ready to assist you.
