How to add V2 Designer into ContentPresenter object

Post by LukasT »

Hello,
I am not able to find some documentation or examples how to interact with new V2 Designer. So I need help...

Please how to create new instance of StiDesignerControl, set the report definition and than add the control to some ContentPresenter?
And how to modify it to hide the window headerbuttons (close etc.)?

Thank you.

It looks like that the control is totally connected to the parent window. So it overwrite the title of the main window for example etc. ...... Am I to understand that you don't count on the fact that the designer can be integrated in a custom application?

A little shock ... somehow nonsence, but if we are the only one on the whole world who needs it integrated with our app, we have to somehow deal with it.
But you said that V1 is out of support and then we see, that V2 is worse in more scenarios.... so, please, tell me why to upgrade to V2?
Thank you in advance and hope for the support.

Thank you! Please any idea when that might be?
In actual moment I see need to be setup that OwnerWindow is not somehow modified by designer (I know you need it to be able to show dialogs) and to hide "panelTitle" control header.

Hello,

We will soon make improvements with which it will be possible to customize individual moments, and hide them. Then you will be able to easily integrate the controller into your windows.

Thank you.
