Visual Studio Report Designer is Blank
|Product||Progress® Telerik® Reporting|
|Report Designer||Visual Studio Report Designer|
On opening a CS/VB report in the VS Designer, the report is blank. If the VS Report Designer is blank, this indicates that the report's InitializeComponent method cannot be accessed and read.
- The created class inheriting Telerik.Reporting.Report does not have a default parameterless constructor in which the InitializeComponent method is called.
- In rare cases, usually when working under source control, the report's files are disassociated - Visual Studio does not recognize the Report's CS|VB, Designer.CS|VB and RESX files as a whole. This condition can be recognized by testing to navigate to the definition of the InitializeComponent method from the report's constructor.
- Check whether the report class has a default parameterless constructor and add such, if needed. Verify that the InitializeComponent method is called in that constructor.
- Verify thatTelerik Reporting is installed on the machine, and the Telerik Reporting* assemblies are referenced in the project. Then exclude the report files from the project and re-add only the report's CS|VB* file. Visual Studio should auto-detect the related Designer.CS|VB and RESX files.
You may exclude many reports at once, but re-adding reports must happen adding one by one separate reports' CS|Vb files.
