Actions Are Not Working on Preview
|Product||Progress® Telerik® Reporting|
|Application Type||Web Application|
|Report Designers||Visual Studio/Standalone Report Designer|
The Actions of the report items are not working on previewing the report both in a report viewer and in a report designer.
Depending on the exact scenario, use any of the following approaches to solve this issue:
Actions not working in Visual Studio - HTML Preview
The Report Designer integrated in Visual Studio provides the HTML Preview option. Visual Studio uses Internet Explorer 7 as a browser where the Reporting engine applies HTML5 standards to produce an HTML document from the report definition. As a result, actions may not work and the layout of the report may appear different from that in HTML5-compliant browsers.
To solve this issue, use a web application with the HTML5 Viewer to preview the result.
Actions not working in the Print preview of the report
To solve this issue, switch to the Interactive preview mode. Depending on the media and the selected rendering format, actions may be supported.
The drill-through report action (
NavigateToReportActionis not working in preview in the HTML5 Viewer
Navigation between reports can be disabled if the target report is specified through the
InstanceReportSource|XmlReportSource('Object instance'|'XML markup' in the Load Report Dialog on configuring the
ReportSourceis handled internally by the Reporting REST service resolver, which is not designed to handle a custom report instance as the target report of an action.
It is unnecessary to use the
InstanceReportSource|XmlReportSourcefor reports designed by Report Designers without further customization. Use a
UriReportSource('Type name' or 'URL or file') will assure the proper processing and rendering of the action.
To handle a custom case where a report instance has to be used, specify the target report by using a
TypeReportsource|UriReportSourcewith a string. The string will be sent to the service Report
Resolver. Then, plug a custom resolver to handle the case in code.
The drill-down report action (
TogglevisibilityActiondoes not toggle the visibility of all required items/sections
By configuring the
ToggleVisibilityAction, you can set a list of targets which includes sub groups, items, and sections. Beside setting the targets, you need to set the
Visibleproperties of the targets depending on whether you want them to be initially shown or hidden.
