A report definition contains all report settings, as well as settings of report controls. To load the report’s definition from a REPX file, use the XtraReport.LoadLayout and XtraReport.FromFile methods.

This method saves a report as a Code Document Object Model (CodeDOM) graph. Alternatively, to save a report definition in an XML format, use the XtraReport.SaveLayoutToXml.
