    Programmatic export to PDF from Silverlight application

    Ever wanted to export a Telerik report from a Silverlight application? This is easily accomplished by instantiating the ReportServiceClient class, which plays the role of proxy to the Telerik Report Service. To specify that you want to render the report we use the RenderAsync method of the ReportServiceClient, which invokes the respective method on the server (remember that it serves as proxy) that would return the rendered report. Since we’ve used an asynchronous method and we do not know when the render would finish, we need to handle the RenderCompleted event.

    Horizontal Table for your reports

    Recent question that popped up from an user was how to create a table, where the table grows horizontally instead of vertically. This is easy as one, two, three when using our Table report item. I start off using the crosstab item as initial template for this task. As the table would be growing "in columns" instead of "in rows", we do not need a row group so we delete it. Then bind the crosstab to a sample business object making sure we've added as many static rows as we need. Next step in order to show all the data, we need to make sure that...
