    We are using Telerik.Reporting control (version 4.2.10.1110 from 2010 Q3) in our Silverlight products. But there is a problem. If the data returned from SQL contains character "{" , the report will errors out. For examples, if the data is like "{TEST", the report will gray out with an error messag on top: The type "TEST" was not found. However if I remove character "{" from the data, the report works fine and shows TEST in the textbox correctly; and character "}" seems not causing any problems. Does anyone have the same issue and has this problem been fixed in the current version? Thanks.

    Hi Joshua,

    This is expected as curly brackets ({ }) are used for embedded expressions and should be escaped with double brackets like this: {{ or }}. For more information refer to Embedded Expressions help article.
