    Good Day All

    I have used the Report wizard to create a barcoded Report. but now i have some few questions about this.

    1) I want to generate the Barcode Number , what is the good way to do that?

    2) i want to retrieve the Barcode based on a Parameter

    3) I see that the report designer is separate entitiy , even your examples show that you create a report separately , now how can i use the report that has been created in my silverlight app. I see in my silverlight toolbox there is

    "ErroStatus"

    "ReportParameterConrtol"

    "ReportViewer"

    "Dialogbox"

    4) how and what contrlols are used to display the Report that have been created in the designer ?

    5) How to pass the parameters from the code behind?

    Thanks

    Hi Vuyiswa Maseko,

    1. You can bind the Barcode item to a datasource field or to a static value. Check out the Barcode demo that came with your installation of Telerik Reporting. (start -> All Programs -> Telerik -> Reporting Q1 2011 -> Visual Studio 2010 Examples ) 
    2. To bind the Barcode item to a Report Parameter our suggestion is to use Barcode.Value Edit Expression dialog. The Edit Expression dialog has Report Parameter's node that lists all of the available Report Parameters.
    3. For Telerik Reports you can only use the Report Items. They are available in the VS Toolbox.
    4. We have provided report viewers for all supported platforms (Silverlight, WPF, ASP.NET and Windows Forms). For more information related to the report viewers check out the Using Telerik Reporting in applications help articles.
    5. If you want to pass parameters from a Silverlight application then our suggestion is to check out the Programmatic Initialization of Report Parameter Values in Telerik Reporting Silverlight Viewer blog. For the other viewers you may find useful the Using Report Parameters programmatically help article.

    Kind regards,
    Peter

    Hi Vuyiswa Maseko,

    We've already covered this issue with a KB article:Images, Charts, Barcodes and Shapes are not being displayed in the Silverlight report viewer. We kindly ask you to first search through our support resources, prior opening a new thread, as the chances are, somebody has already asked the same question and it has been answered.

    All the best,
    Steve
