2) Switch to File View, add references to the Silverlight assemblies in Client project, add new UserControl and declare an empty ReportViewer:



3) Add custom control in the screen designer and run the application to check the result:

4) Copy ReportService.svc (again from Telerik Reporting official examples) in the WCF Service Application and declare the report and the service url in the ReportViewer:

5) Run the application and browse the Telerik Reporting demos from LightSwitch application:
