I am in the process of evaluating whether Syncfusion reporting platform could be used in my project. So far, there are couple of problems i've encountered. I hope you can provide me a little guidance.

Main scenario is as follows. The RDLC definition file is dynamically generated through the custom tool i'm working on. I'm using local data source (without SSRS server). Finally, when the report is rendered using Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms ( everything is correct and looks exactly as i wanted. On the other hand, with Syncfusion.EJ.ReportViewer (15.1450.0.33 community edition) i'm unable to achieve the same results. Both controls are using exactly the same RDLC and data source, but with Syncfusion viewer some elements are missing. Take a look at the attached screenshots. There are no data bars in the table column, doughnut charts have different thickness, series on the line chart are totally absent. What is the main cause of these differences?

I've also attached mentioned RDLC file and c#/sql code for the data source. My test application is using ASP.NET MVC5 and MS-SQL2012.

Some questions:
1) What is the version level of SSRS/RDL that your reporting platform is supporting (2005/2008/2010/2016)?
2) Can you guarantee that your report viewer is fully compatible with Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms?

Thank you in advance.
