I saw a previous posting that it is possible to display hyperlinks on a report but that they only work with the Web Viewer.  I have not tried this yet though.

I have a few questions regarding hyperlinks and the silverlight viewer:

  • Do hyperlinks function in the Silverlight viewer?
  • If yes, do we use an HtmlTextControl for this?
  • Does silverlight application have to run in windowless mode to use the Silverlight report viewer?

We are Telerik users and are considering using Telerik reports for current project instead of our usual Microsoft Reporting Services.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Mike,

Thank you for contacting us and up to your questions:

  • As stated in the HtmlTextBox documentation, hyperlinks are interactive (acts as actual hyperlink) under HTML rendering extension only. A report shown in the Silverlight viewer is using the XPS rendering extension, thus it would not be interactive.
  • Yes, only the HtmlTextBox control can work with HTML.
  • Can you clarify what you have in mind? As you can see from our demo reports, the windowless parameter is set to true:
    <object id="silverlightHost"
            data="data:application/x-silverlight-2,"
            type="application/x-silverlight-2"
            width="100%"
            height="595px">
    ..
        <param name="windowless" value="true" />
    ..
     </object>
