How to Use Angular Report Viewer with Report Server

This tutorial demonstrates how to add the Angular Report Viewer component to a new Angular application and display a report coming from the Telerik Report Server.

Prerequisites

The following list describes the prerequisites for this tutorial:

Using Angular Report Viewer in Angular application

All paths and url links in the described steps must be adapted according to your project setup.

Steps:

  1. Create new Angular application using the Angular CLI tutorial.

  2. Install jQuery by using the following command:

    npm install jquery
    
  3. Add a reference to jQuery in the scripts array of the.angular-cli.json (as of Angular 6 the file is renamed to angular.json):

    "scripts": ["../node_modules/jquery/dist/jquery.js"]
    
  4. Install the Telerik Angular Report Viewer NPM package by running:

    npm install @progress/telerik-angular-report-viewer
    

    If you receive a 403 Forbidden Error, you need to register and login at npmjs.com before performing this step.

    npm login --registry=https://registry.npmjs.org --scope=@progress
    
  5. Once installed, import the TelerikReportingModule in your application root module :

    import { TelerikReportingModule } from '@progress/telerik-angular-report-viewer';
    ...
    imports: [TelerikReportingModule]
    
  6. Add the desired report viewer container style using a property of the AppComponent class:

    export class AppComponent {
        viewerContainerStyle = {
            position: 'relative',
            width: '1000px',
            height: '800px',
            ['font-family']: 'ms sans serif'
        };
    }
    
  7. Use the report viewer selector in the AppComponent template:

    <tr-viewer
        [containerStyle]="viewerContainerStyle"
        [reportServer]="{
            url: 'http://localhost:83/',
            username: 'myusername',
            password: 'mypass'
        }"
        [reportSource]="{
            report: 'Samples/Dashboard.trdp',
            parameters: {}
        }" 
        [viewMode]="'INTERACTIVE'"
        [scaleMode]="'SPECIFIC'"
        [scale]="1.0">
    </tr-viewer>
    

    For all available report viewer options refer to Options.

  8. Style the viewer using the desired Kendo UI theme (еither using Less-Based Themes or Sass-Based Themes): Add references to the Less-based CSS files in the <head> element of index.html:

    <!-- The required Less-based styles -->
    <link href="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2022.3.913/styles/kendo.common.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <link href="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2022.3.913/styles/kendo.blueopal.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    

    To get the Sass-based Kendo UI themes, you can use either the pre-build CSS files or the NPM packages (Getting the Sass-Based Themes). If you use the styleUrls attribute to reference the CSS, it is required to set the view encapsulation to None :

    import { Component, ViewEncapsulation } from '@angular/core';
    @Component({
        encapsulation: ViewEncapsulation.None
    
  9. Run the application:

    ng serve
