Extending Telerik Report Designer works in Telerik but not in SmartClient (FormReport)

[ Edited ]



My target is to achieve dynamic height of TextBox based on Fields.FORM... value.


So for test purpose I tried to create a simple custom function greet() in telerik report using This Documentation. It worked in telerik application, but not working through SmartClient Application reporting


Further Details

Following above doc,

  1. I have created a MyAssembly.dll
  2. Placed it in <telerikDesigner.exe-folder>/
  3. Specified dll in Config - telerikdesigner.exe.config
  4. Specified My TextBox value to "=MyAssembly.MyClass.greet('John')"

Now in telerik application [Preview], the function gives output.


But when the SmartClient tries to output the report. It Says

[An error has occurred while processing TextBox 'tb_dyn_notes_val':
The expression contains object 'MyAssembly' that is not defined in the current


I tried placing the dll in <SmartClient Installl Dir>/Workflows/bin too. How can I resolve this.


MyClass.cs,Telerik.ReportDesigner.exe.config files:



namespace MyAssembly
    public class MyClass
        public static string Greet(string name)
            return string.Format("Hello, {0}", name);
   <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
      <probing privatePath="Workflows; Workflows\bin"/>
        <!-- Required for interoperability with older versions of Telerik Reporting -->
        <assemblyIdentity name="Telerik.Reporting" culture="neutral" publicKeyToken="a9d7983dfcc261be"/>
        <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion=""/>
			<add name="MyAssembly" version="" culture="neutral" publicKeyToken="null" />
