Hello.

I just basically installed Telerik Reporting. Created a new class library. Went to Add New item -> Telerik Report.

Added a textbox and a picture, hit "Preview" and get

"The source of the report definition has not been specified.".

Why is this? Shouldn't i be able to simply just preview just the simplest of things? Feels like something is very wrong, maybe I have to reinstall.

VS 2010.

Hello Emil,

This error occurs when assigning null for a viewer's report property, but should not appear in Preview and we were not able to reproduce this on our end. Generally you should Connect the Report to Data first, then set appropriate Expressions for the report items so they can show data.

Best wishes,
