We have added a public, supported API for adding your own business logic to menus directly in the report designer. The attached example and whitepaper provides a demonstration of how to use this, using an example of highlighting all subreports in a report.
How is this intended to be used?
Target use cases include:
- Tighter integration between the CR 2008 report designer and an application. You can expose your application’s model to CR 2008 through these addins to make report design easier for end users.
- Utilities such as bulk modifications of items in a single report to enforce corporate standards. Perhaps parameter names or prompt text is supposed to have a certain name – well, now you can scan the report and apply your standards leveraging this programmatic interface.
Let us know what you think!
