I have a project using Telerik Reporting 2013Q2 sp1. When adding an EntityDataSource in the report designer, the configuration utility fires up.  I then choose a (valid) connection string and press next. The 'Choose a context' panel then takes more than 3 minutes to display my project's context. It is a relativelly small project and I cannot understand why it takes so long. When using hte ObjectDataSource object, the context along with the other database objects appears instantly.

Does anyone have any ideas on what is wrong here???

Hello Jean,

Thank you for the provided information. We have tested this locally but we were not able to reproduce such huge times for displaying the context. Please note that the wizard tries to discover if any of the referenced types is suitable for displaying. Because of that if your project is small, but has a lot of references the time needed for this operation may be considerably larger. In case this is obstructing your work you can always drag an EntityDataSource in your report and then cancel the wizard. After that simply go in the InitializeComponent method and write the respective code by hand.

You can also try updating to the latest version of Telerik Reporting and check if the issue persists.

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q2 2013? You can get them from your account.
