I'd like to add the results from a report to a map.  I am unsure how to expose a collection of items that relate to either the Report or the reportviewer that I can gain access to.  I am able to loop through all of the data from the report's datasource, however, none of the user's filters are applied.  I suppose I could replicate the filters on the data source before binding to the report but surely there's a better way.  Am I missing something obvious?

Hi Eric,

I am uncertain what are the exact requirements. As far as it concerns filtering you can map data retrival methods' parameters to report parameters (e.g. Using Parameters with the ObjectDataSource Component) or apply filters on report level to control the visualized data.

In order to advise you further, please elaborate on the whole scenario, how and where you need to use Telerik reports, what data you need to visualize or extract, and what are the user's filters and their role.

To clarify.  The user selects a report and this fills the reportviewer with data.  I would like map those results using my own function; however, that function requires Lat, Long and ID.  All of which are in the reportviewer.  I'm just unsure how to expose that data.

Hello Eric,

the data bound to the report is actually known, you can get the report instance DataSource and convert to the used data source component, in order to extract the underlying data. Then you can manipulated it as required.

As I notice you have opened a support ticket #788808 with more details. Let us continue the discussion there to avoid splitting information between threads. Also using the support ticketing system allows us to exchange project file, which will be helpful to understand better the scenario and advise you accordingly.
