    There was recently a great blog on SL report viewer (btw, why was it removed?), which described a great feature of the report generator. It said, the report generator, generates XAML code on the server and then sends it to the client and that's how the client viewer displays a perfect output.

    This has opened up a new idea in my head to use RADBook (another great product from SL team), in conjunction with the viewer. What I'd like to do, is to have those xaml pages render in the RADBook pages, allowing us to create and send a perfect report in a form of a book with front page.

    How can we accomplish getting the xaml from report generator to RADBook, without the UI of the viewer?
    Thanks!

    Hi Ben,

    Integrating the RadBook control into the Report Viewer is something we're looking for since the very beginning of both controls. Unfortunately we still haven't got the chance to work on this pretty interesting task. Anyway using the Telerik Report WCF service is straightforward and I would suggest you to give it a try and if you have some questions or any difficulties we are here to help you.

    All the best,

    Hi Svetoslav;

    Thank you for the reply. I also believe the integration of the reporting and RADBook is a pretty interesting combination and opens up new doors to new solutions. I'm fully confident the Report team and Book team will have a solution for us. Meanwhile having the Report WCF Service is the KEY to get the report engine.

    As soon I get to that part of the project, I will try the service and will share my findings with the team.
    Thanks again for the reply!
