Hi,

We have reports in our project which were written in Telrik Reporting Q1 2009. While assigning a DataSource to a report we used to use an entity as a source as:
rpt.DataSource = my_entity; 

And in the report I have TextBox with the value "=Fields.my_entity.FirstProperty".

This used to work well until I have upgraded to Telerik Reporting Q1 2010. Now when I set the value as "=Fields.SomeValue" it works fine. But I can not use any property of the "SomeValue".

Did Telerik remove the lazy loading of the entity properties, or could I fix it with a minor touch of code?

Regards.

Hello Utku Ozan,

I've just tested the project from this post and did not encounter any problems. Can you please provide us with a runnable project that shows the issue?
Generally as of Q1 we have introduced a new to Telerik Reporting concept of data source components that allows the reports and the reporting engine to connect to different data sources in a better way than before. This is a big step as it opens a lot new opportunities for the reports and our clients respectively (data source parameters, significant performance improvements and optimizations). So as of Q1, the Data Source Components are the recommended way to connect a report to data.

Regards,
Steve
