Cannot Create Objects from String Representations


Product Progress® Telerik® Reporting
Version Q2 2012 and later
Report Viewers WinForms, WPF, ASP.NET


Cannot create an object of type "Telerik.Reporting.Report" from its string representation "MyNameSpace.MyClass, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null" for the "Report" property.


This error might occur if you are using a WebSite project and you have the report class in the WebSite directly.


The issue is due to the fact that when using a WebSite, after rebuild, the following will always be different and it will not match with the originally assigned report: App_Code.__unch8s_n__. It is recommended that you follow the best practices and have the report in a separate class library that is referenced in the application or WebSite.
