Hi,
I am new to the tool, and need some help.

My application environment is ASP.NET 2.0 for a website.

Adding files to the bin folder:
- I have placed 3 dlls in the folder (Telerik.Reporting.dll, Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms.dll, and LandWatchReport.dll
- The last listed file is generated in the bin of the class project that produced a report that I could run on the local machine.

Creating References
- Question: While I can create a reference to the LandWatchReport.dll, I am unable to Add Reference to the Telerik dlls - the add dialogue works, they just don't show up being added. Is this a problem?
- Question: The support website shows a References Node in the Visual Studio instance.  I do not know how to reveal the References Node in the Solution Explorer.

Creating Initial Report View
- I created a new web form and inserted the report viewer object.
- Now, it is unclear how I point the report viewer to the dll associated with the LandWatchReport.dll.
- It is unclear how I make reference to a report name within that dll.  (it make reference to identifying assemblies, but I don't have assemblies)

I will have more questions, but hopefully someone can indulge me on these rather basic topics to get going.

Thanks.

Hello Bob Wenzlau,

Up to your questions:
Question: While I can create a reference to the LandWatchReport.dll, I am unable to Add Reference to the Telerik dlls - the add dialogue works, they just don't show up being added. Is this a problem?

Answer: Web site projects are "special" projects and they do not have designated References node visible in the Solution explorer. However the referenced project and/or assemblies can be viewed by going into the web site "Property Pages".

Question: The support website shows a References Node in the Visual Studio instance.  I do not know how to reveal the References Node in the Solution Explorer.
Answer: Probably what you're looking at is not a web site project. As explained in your previous question, web sites do not have Reference node, but others do.

Question: It is unclear how I make reference to a report name within that dll.  (it make reference to identifying assemblies, but I don't have assemblies)

Answer:
Locate the Report property in the viewer's property grid and select your report from the drop down list. This is the report that you created in the class library. You can do this with code as well:

this.ReportViewer1.Report = new MyClassLibrary1.Report1();

where MyClassLibrary1 is the class library holding the report and Report1 is your report.

Best wishes,
Steve
