To customize the Data Source and Report wizard pages, do the following.

  1. Add a custom service implementing the IWizardCustomizationService interface.

    using DevExpress.DataAccess.UI.Wizard;
    using DevExpress.DataAccess.Wizard.Model;
    using DevExpress.DataAccess.Wizard.Services;
    using DevExpress.XtraReports.Wizards;
    using System.ComponentModel.Design;
    // ...
    
    class WizardCustomizationService : IWizardCustomizationService {
        void IWizardCustomizationService.CustomizeReportWizard(IWizardCustomization<XtraReportModel> tool) {
            DataSourceTypes dataSourceTypes = tool.Resolve(typeof(DataSourceTypes)) as DataSourceTypes;
            dataSourceTypes.Remove(DataSourceType.Excel);
            dataSourceTypes.Remove(DataSourceType.Object);
        }
    
        void IWizardCustomizationService.CustomizeDataSourceWizard(IWizardCustomization<XtraReportModel> tool) {
            DataSourceTypes dataSourceTypes = tool.Resolve(typeof(DataSourceTypes)) as DataSourceTypes;
            dataSourceTypes.Remove(DataSourceType.Excel);
            dataSourceTypes.Remove(DataSourceType.Object);
        }
    
        bool IWizardCustomizationService.TryCreateDataSource(IDataSourceModel model, out object dataSource, out string dataMember) {
            dataSource = null;
            dataMember = null;
            return false;
        }
    
        bool IWizardCustomizationService.TryCreateReport(IDesignerHost designerHost, XtraReportModel model, object dataSource, string dataMember) {
            return false;
        }
    }
    
  2. Register the created service by calling the XRDesignMdiController.AddService method.

    using DevExpress.XtraReports.Wizards;
    // ...
    
    namespace WindowsFormsApplication1 {
        public partial class Form1 : System.Windows.Forms.Form {
            public Form1() {
                InitializeComponent();
                reportDesigner1.AddService(typeof(IWizardCustomizationService), new WizardCustomizationService());
                Load += Form1_Load;
            }
    
            void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e) {
                reportDesigner1.CreateNewReportWizard();
            }
        }
    }
