    I currently have a dll built from my application which is put in the same directory as the report designer.
    the dll being ShowSoft.Api.dll

    In the config file for the designer "Telerik.ReportDesigner.exe.config".
    I have the following reference:

    <add name="ShowSoft.Api" version="" />

    But still the "configure object data source" displays no available data source types.
    Is there something i'm missing?

    Hello Jonathan,

    We have replied to your support ticket on the same topic:

    "There is some issue with the provided assembly. We are unable to review the ContactReportDataSet method with JustDecompile. If JustDecompile is unable to see the method's definition, then it also won't be available in the Standalone Report Designer. In addition, this assembly has dependencies on other assemblies which are missing from the Report Designer folder.

    You can review the How to: Bind to a BusinessObject help article for guidelines on how to create your data retrieval method and how to mark it with attributes.

    Please check the support ticket reply for further information.
