DefaultReportDesignerContainer.RegisterSecureDataConverter<T>() Method

Enables the Web Report Designer to use a custom algorithm for encryption of data source connection strings on the client.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.Web.ReportDesigner

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v21.1.Web.dll


public static void RegisterSecureDataConverter<T>()
    where T : ISecureDataConverter

Type Parameters



When the SQL Data Source wizard obtains connection strings from the Web.config file, the serialized report contains only the connection name (and not the connection string itself).

You can register a custom connection string provider and store all the connection parameters or only the connection name with the serilaized data source. When the report serialized with connection parameters is passed to the client, these parameters are encrypted by applying the MachineKey algorithm. To provide a custom encryption mechanism, use the ISecureDataConverter interface.
