Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.UI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v18.1.Extensions.dll

Syntax

public static void ShowRibbonDesigner(
    this XtraReport report
)

Parameters

Type Name Description
XtraReport report

A report to open in the End-User Report Designer.

Call the ShowRibbonDesigner method to open the report in the default Report Designer form with a Ribbon Toolbar.

To be able to use this method, you should add the DevExpress.XtraReports.v18.1.Extensions.dll to your project's References list.

using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
// ...

XtraReport1 report = new XtraReport1();
report.ShowRibbonDesigner();

We recommend you use the ReportDesignTool class instead, which provides the similar ReportDesignTool.ShowRibbonDesigner method and additionally allows you to customize the Report Designer form. This class also enables you to release the memory right after showing this form (for instance, by calling the Dispose method or utilizing the using statement).

Note

You cannot use the ShowRibbonDesigner method in Web applications. Use the Web Report Designer instead.
