    Hi,

    The Silverlight viewer for Reporting Q1 2014 (2014.1.224.1050) depends on UI for Silverlight Q3 2013 (2013.3.1202.1050) instead of UI for Silverlight Q1 2014 (2014.1.224.1050). This gives gives me an error in Visual Studio and the report viewer component is blank when I run it.

    Hello,

    As of Q1 2014 the Silverlight ReportViewer uses only implicit styles, thus you need to use the Silverlight NoXAML binaries and add the XAML files and related resources additionally. For more details and steps check the Setting a Theme (Using Implicit Styles) article and our local demos, installed by default under C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Reporting Q1 2014\Examples.

    I hope this information helps you.

    Switching to the implicit styles was a really big change for us since we had so many custom styles, but it did work.

    Thanks for the help.

    Yep, works for me as well now. But I really think you should provide separate binaries with styles and without, like you do for UI for Silverlight.

    Hello,

    Thank you all for your kind words and the understanding.

    For now we are going to use implicit styles and do not plan having separate binaries with included styles. The benefit from the new approach is you can edit the template easier and you can use private server to distribute the same version of the assemblies.

    In addition, we synchronized the Q1 2014 builds of Telerik Reporting and Telerik Ui for WPF and Silverlight in our latest internal builds, which are available for download.

    Hi Jon,

    We understand that the changes may have brought some additional requirements in order to set up your projects. For more information on the reasoning behind this decision you can check the XAML Theming – Implicit Styles versus StyleManager blog post.
