    Using Telerik Report WCF Service (or how to display reports in RadBook)

    If you are following the Telerik Reporting product closely you may already know that with the 2009 Q3 release we entered the Silverlight game. The industry's first native Silverlight Report Viewer allows you to display Telerik Reports in your Silverlight application while having all goodies that the Windows Forms and Web viewers offer. The new member of the report viewers' family sports report parameters, the new document map, true printing and export to all available formats, including PDF, Image (TIFF, PNG, JPEG, BMP, GIF), Microsoft Excel (XLS), Rich Text Format (RTF), HTML, CSV and the new XPS.

    Telerik Reporting offers industry’s first built-in Silverlight Viewer

    The Q3 2009 release is now in the past, but the newly introduced features are here to stay.

    Working with WCF Web Services in Silverlight, a headache/solution approach

    So if you’re like me, you’re on board with Silverlight and looking to get the most out of your RIA development.  I’ve taken all the advice offered for creating Silverlight apps with WCF services- this video by Tim Heuer has been indispensable, but now we can create a Silverlight Enabled WCF service to avoid the modifications in web.config.

    OpenAccess, WCF, and a RadGrid (Oh My!)

    I’ve been working on a project that uses OpenAccess ORM as the persistence layer between my app and the database. Since the app is going to be used on both web and client platforms I wanted to add a services layer to serve up the data. Turns out it’s pretty easy to do. So I’ll walk you through a quick demo of how to hook OpenAccess up to WCF services and then consume the data with a RadGrid. Set up the project structure First, create a class library project called Data to hold the data access code. This is where you’ll use OpenAccess to...
