Im using a WCF Solution that handle the report, and in a Silverlight solution im rendering the report. But i have 2 issues.
1. Cannot debug in the WCF service the Need_Datasource event.
2. when trying to render the  report show me this error: "There is no available report type with assembly qualified name "ReportName, Namespace". Could not load file or assembly "ReportName, Namespace" or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Please if you could send me an example on how to work with WCF and Silverlight in 2 diferenst solutions it would be great.

Hello Francisco,

Thank you for your interest in Telerik Reporting and up to your questions:
  1. As outlined in the Using the NeedDataSource event to connect data help article, the event is raised by the reporting engine only when there is no data source attached. So if that is the case, a break point would never stop there. If this is not the case please elaborate what you mean.
  2. This error means that it cannot locate type with the specified assembly qualified name or you have forgotten to add reference to the report library in the web project. Here is an example of how report property should be specified:

    <telerik:ReportViewer  x:Name="ReportViewer1" Width="1000"
                  ReportServiceUri="../ReportService.svc"
                  Report="Telerik.Reporting.Examples.CSharp.BarcodesReport, CSharp.ReportLibrary, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null">
                </telerik:ReportViewer>
Additionally you already have access to working examples - these are the Visual Studio report examples installed along with the product. You can open them up from the install directory and review the Silverlight application.

Sincerely yours,
Steve

I am having this same problem and I tried to add a reference to the class library as stated above but I get the following error when I try to reference it: "You can only add project references to otherSilverlight projects in the solution."

If I create a silverlight class library, and add a telerik report to it, I recieve an error and can't get into the designer for the reports.

*** EDIT ****
Nevermind I was accidently overridding it in a code behind file.  Problem solved
