    Reading about the SL report Viewer that can be used within a SL project, and looking at the demos, I would like to ask the following question:
    Can we use the viewer as a "Component", just like GridView or Scheduler or Book, component where we can put the viewer in a SL page and use it?

    If not possible with Q3 release, is there plan to create a component for the viewer and when?
    Thanks!

    Of course you can add it, the Silverlight page is almost the same as Silverlight user control and you can add Silverlight controls in both (in fact they were the same in Silverlight 2). Kind of strange question from someone marked as MVP ..

    Actually Chris, I'm aware of a SL page being a user control, and seems like you missed my point (even though I made it as BOLD). My question wasn't if I can use it as a User Control but whether It is available as a standalone "Component or Telerik Control" like a GridView.

    The ReportViewer is a Silverlight Control! What do you refer to as Component (hint: there are not components in Silverlight)?
