Hi,

In my silverlight app I have a report with different parameters, one of parameters is a combobox and data source might contain thousands records. In this case I have problems with combobox because of huge amount of data. So I want to use some custom control for such parameters (for example it might be a grid, that appears after clicking on special button).

My questions are can we use custom controls for parameters presentation and what we have to do with parameters that might contain a lot of data?

Thanks,
Julia

Hello Julia,

The Silverlight report viewer is a template and you can use Blend to extract the default template and modify it for your purpose as explained in the Creating Style in Expression Blend help article.
General information on styling templated controls is available in the Styling a control that supports templates MSDN article.

Kind regards,
