Extending Expressions Overview

Expressions can easily be extended by providing user functions written in any .NET language. This is very useful in addition to the built-in functions, providing more complex domain-specific calculations or uniform calculations because it speeds up the processing and boosts the performance. Furthermore, you can add custom aggregate functions to apply domain-specific logic while accumulating values.

In order to expose your custom functions, so they can be utilized by the Reporting engine, you have to add a reference to the assembly they are defined in. The reference is added under the AssemblyReferences configuration section in the application's configuration file.

            type="Telerik.Reporting.Configuration.ReportingConfigurationSection, Telerik.Reporting"
            <add name="MyCustomAssembly" version="" />
