This document provides a brief overview of all topics that we cover in the Using Expressions documentation section. With Telerik Reporting, you can use expressions to control multiple aspects of a report such as:
- The content
- The style and appearance
- The behavior
The following approaches allow you to control these report aspects:
You can use an expression as a value for an item’s property. This allows you to easily customize your report.
Another way to customize your report is to use Embedded Expressions so that you can blend text with expressions.
Telerik Reporting allows you to bind a report item’s property to an expression. Use this approach if the property that you are interested in doesn’t support expression values by default.
Design your reports so that different styles are applied based on the data in the report. This is possible when you use an expression instead of a static value for the style properties of a report item.
You can write expressions and use them to group, filter, or sort data.
You can use an expression to combine values from multiple columns and use the result as a value or a label for a parameter.
