Create Report Programmatically

To create a Telerik report in code, you need to instantiate a Telerik.Reporting.Report object and set its properties. For example, this code will create a report and set up its data source:

MyReport report = new MyReport();
string selectCommand = @"SELECT * FROM Sales.Store";
string connectionString = "Data Source=(local)\\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=AdventureWorks;Integrated Security=True";
Telerik.Reporting.SqlDataSource sqlDataSource = new Telerik.Reporting.SqlDataSource(connectionString, selectCommand);
report.DataSource = sqlDataSource;

Next Steps

The code sample above demonstrates how to create an empty report. To create a functional report, you can add sections and items in code.

When you create reports programmatically, you must use a Custom Report Source to display these reports in a Report Viewer.

You can also programmatically export the report that you created.
