    I watched Evan Hutnick's Webinar today and It's great to see Telerik reporting has made it to Silverlight. The implementation seems to be fairly straight forward. Although, I have several questions about the Communication between the SL Viewer and Report processor, but I'll differ those questions to another post.

    However, I have an important question in regards to exporting to XPS.
    a) I saw that viewer has a button that the user can select to export to XPS. Is it possible not to show the viewer and through code export that XPS to a local storage? My goal is for the Report processor to create the report, the communication delivers that to SL client, and then I can save it as XPS to show it in my Silverlight app in my own way?
    b) If not, is it possible that we can generate the XPS at the service level (Report processor) and then send the XPS to SL client?

    Basically, I need a way to show a nicely created XPS report that I can display in my own Silverlight app, rather than Report Viewer?

    Hi ..Ben,

    What you need is the Render operation of the Report Service that will render a report at the server side and send back to you the rendered document (as a byte array).
