    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. In the RenderCompleted event we get the result from the rendering and decide what to...

    Programmatic Initialization of Report Parameter Values in Telerik Reporting Silverlight Viewer

    Usually one may control the report appearance and the data it displays through report parameters. The Silverlight report viewer, just like the other two, offers built-in user interface that enables end users to interact with the reports. Still there are cases when one may further need to control the report definition according to a custom logic that runs in the client application. However, since we have introduced the Silverlight Report Viewer the greatest challenge our clients have faced is that there is no direct access to the report definition in the Silverlight application.   To provide the ability to specify the parameter...
