Does a report viewer require a report get its data from a telerik SqlDataSource (as opposed to the microsoft version)?  I am currently using an asp SqlDataSource to provide information to my report.  The report works fine when rendered manually using ReportProcessor.RenderReport() but doesn't render correctly when put into a report viewer.  When put into a report viewer, i get this error:

An error has occured while processing Report '':
The expression contains object 'Test_Type' that is not defined in the current context.

Hi Von,

Since Q1 2010 we have introduced the new Data Source Components.The SqlDataSource component is designed to work especially with Telerik's reporting engine thus offering much better performance and integration. We don't offer out of the box support for ASP.NET datasources such as asp:SqlDataSource although if you are not using any of their specific features, binding to it should be possible.

Kind regards,
Peter
