    Hello,

    I am a current customer of the Telerik Rad Controls for Silverlight.  I just downloaded the Reporting trial and am trying to figure out how to get reports viewable from my Silverlight applications.  I have found many videos on how to build the reports, but nothing about how to display them from Silverlight.  One video I found said the Viewer was out of data and to use the RadHtmlPlaceholder.

    First, do all the reports need to be displayed using the HtmlPlaceholder, or is there an actual Silverlight Viewer for this?  Second, please point me to a *current* video/tutorial/walkthough on how to get started using Reporting with Silverlight 4.

    Thanks,

    -Scott

    After you have created your Report, you need a reportViewer to view that report. here is a good example

    That's what I was looking for.  This helped me get on the right track.  I would also like to point out this video to anyone wanting to use WCF in Silverlight with Reports.  This explained a lot:
