    I like the demo app that has a report manager function. Is there any tutorial on how to set up my own report manager please.

    I guess what I'm after is a report Library project. Something that contains all my report definitions in its own tier
     from what I can tell the telerik.examples.Csharp Demo application seemed to allow a Report viewer to be dynamically populated.

    Some guidance on how to create this for myself would be helpful.

    I have tried to add a report viewer to a WPF window but I get an exception error

    Note I can add a report viewer succefully to a silverlight project and to a windows forms project. It's the WPF project that won't work.

    Hi Will Ferguson,

    Thank you for contacting us and up to your questions:
    1. You have our demo reports at your disposal as they are installed along with the product. You can open the examples solution from Start menu --> Telerik --> Reporting Q2 2010 --> Visual Studio 2008 examples and see how we've implemented the Report Catalog report.
    2. The WPF viewer (Silverlight viewer as well for that matter) depends on other WPF controls (RadControls for WPF) which cannot be added to the Global Assembly Cashe (GAC), but are needed in order to add the viewer from the Toolbox to the form. That is why you should manually register the viewer like explained in the Using Telerik Reports in WPF application help article, namely add references to the needed assemblies in the project and then use the ToolBox to draw the viewer or manually register the viewer like explained in the latter article. Once from MS come with a solution to this limitation, we would update our product so that no manual steps are needed.

    Hope these help.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    Fixed my problem by downloading the latest wpf 4.0 Binaries from telerik . Was using 3.5. I am targeting .net 4.0 in VS2010
    All my toolbar items are back now and not greyed out. I can successfully drag a reportviewer onto a window.xaml.

    I will now continue to try and recreate in WPF what the tutorial does in Winforms.
