        So, I have an app which prints a photo of a map which I keep in a cookie and I have to insert it in a telerik report. I also have a few dozen fields which are not inserted in a database. Do I have to get the values for the fields from a database source or is there any other way I can send the values? 

    The data is basically stored in my view, so can I somehow take the data from my fields and sent it to the report? 
    Same goes for the map? How do I insert the map in the report? I went through the Map Wizard in the Report Designer, but the data sources are the same.

    Hello Zoran,

    The general approach we recommend is to mock the data to be able to use it in DataSource components in the Report Designer. This will allow connecting the data items (Map for example) to the data and configure their properties through the dedicated wizards which can ease the report's creation significantly.

    Then, you can change the data at run-time using the Reporting API. If you use Reporting REST service for rendering reports modifications need to be applied in a custom report resolver.
