    In a Silverlight app I have a ListBox which is populated using the results of the ListAvailableReports service method(available from the report service).
    The method's result is an IList<ReportInfo>.
    The class ReportInfo has 3 properties:
    Name - contains the report Class name in the Report Library,
    FullName - contains the full assembly name,
    and
    Description.

    Obviously I cannot use the firs two, for the user to identify the Report.
    My question is: How do I populate the Description property? (What property do I need to set in the Report class on the server ?)
    I've looked for some time, but i cannot find it.

    Ty for your time,
    Alex.

    Edit: I use the Reporting 2011 Q2.

    Hello Alex,

    The ReportInfo.Description property is populated from the report's description attribute. Check out the following code snippet:

    [Description("This is the report's description.")]
    public partial class MyReport: Telerik.Reporting.Report
    {
        public MyReport()
        {
    Hope this helps.

    All the best,

    Thank you very much for the answer ... to be honest I would not have never thought that the description is populated by setting a class attribute :).
