Grid-Based Report Generation

Grid-based Report Generation allows you to get a report with the same data, design, and layout as your GridControl currently displays. End users can customize an automatically built report design without having to build a report from scratch.


Grid-based Report Generation works only with the TableView.

You can enable Grid-based Report Generation at runtime (in code) or using Behaviors without additional coding (in XAML).

Expanded Enabling Grid-Based Report Generation at Runtime

The example below demonstrates how to initialize and open the Report Designer at runtime.

Expanded Enabling Grid-Based Report Generation Using Behaviors

To enable grid-based reporting using Behaviors, attach the GridReportManagerService to a TableView, then attach ReportManagerBehavior to a ribbon or bar item and bind its ReportManagerBehavior.Service property to GridReportManagerService.

The code sample below demonstrates how to enable grid-based report generation in XAML only, without any additional coding.

Expanded Limitations

  • If the GridControl works in master-detail mode, only the master view is displayed within the Report Designer. End users can manually add detail rows to report.
  • The merged grid cells are exported as separate cells.
  • Custom grouping, custom sorting, and custom summaries are not applied to report design.
