New to Reporting.  Trying to evaluate for our product launch.  

Context:

1. Visual Studio 2017

2. WPF App

3. Data is "contained in" our library

4. I would like to use the designer by editing a trdp file for setting up the report

5. Configuration is AnyCPU

No matter how I modify the app.config file, I can't get any object entities to show up anywhere in the designer.  what am I doing to prevent that?  Examples of this anywhere would be helpful.  Couldn't find anything using Google.

Hello David,

If I understood correctly, the requirement is to create/edit a Standalone designer report (i.e. trdp file) and use an ObjectDataSource in the report definition to deliver the data.

Indeed, the data-providing assembly should be registered in the Telerik.Reporting section of the application configuration file - ObjectDataSource Configuration article section.
Note that the Standalone designer application config file is Telerik.ReportDesigner.exe.config. The file resides in the same folder as the designer executable file Telerik.ReportDesigner.exe.
The folder is (Telerik Reporting installation folder)\Report Designer (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Telerik Reporting R3 2018\Report Designer).
Check also Report Designer Configuration and Extending Report Designer articles.
