*UPDATE: This technique is outdated. You can now use the native Telerik Silverlight Report Viewer as of Q3 2009. Please see the updated approach.**

With the natural evolution of the Silverlight framework, people are demanding more and more from component vendors. One such request is to service the need to use Telerik Reporting in a Silverlight application. In this post you will see a solution that is very easy to use.

Telerik Silverlight Reporting


You can display the reports done with the Telerik Reporting product in your Silverlight application with just a single line of code. You need to create a Silverlight application with an ASP.NET site and add a page that will serve the reports that are build with our Reporting product. Then, in order to display the report in your Silverlight application, all you need to do is to use the RadHtmlPlaceholder control and to point its SourceUrl property to the page containing the report.


<telerik:RadHtmlPlaceholder SourceUrl="ReportViewer.aspx"/> 


 It is just that simple! I have created a project file that you can download and use as a reference. You will need to install the Telerik Reporting suite first.
