I am looking at using the reporting product in a "disconnected" Silverlight application, where the user may not be connected to the internet, and the reports will/may be based on ObservableCollections serialised to Isolated Storage. I have looked at the samples and documentation for some inspiration and i think that I may use Business Objects, the classes are in a seperate project than the main one.

I am looking at creating dataobjects from these but I am experiencing some issues, the data annotations do not seem to be "resolved" in the silverlight class project (the ones with the classes in). I am then trying to create lists from these collections, and use these, in terms of performance or using the product the best way, am I on the right lines.

I have looked at samples/help files, such as Business Objects in the help file.

I may also use the RadRichTextBox to create the Report in, but the reporting tool seems to give me more flexibility, especially with the external Report building Tool.

I am making an assumption that i can use the reporting system when disconnected, if I cannot then fine, I'll use an alternative route.

The main problem I have been experiencing is seeing the classes that I created as a list when configuring the datasource, I seem to be able to view that in the configure datasource today, must have had a bad moment yesterday.

Thank you in Advance
