Hi Richard,

As far as we know, silverlight runs in the context of a web page, so you can use our web ReportViewer to show a report. As far as we understand you want to gather some parameters from a silverlight app and pass this to another page with a ReportViewer that would show corresponding report data. You can do that by accessing the ReportParameters directly from the ReportViewer: this.ReportViewer1.Report.ReportParameters["MyParam"].Value = <your value>;

UPDATE: Telerik Reporting supports Silverlight applications starting in Q3 2009. Download Telerik Reporting Q3 2009 from your accounts and check the Silverlight Report Viewer help topic for more information.

Hi Steve

Thanks for the reply , but i am not sure if i explained myself very well, i would like to view the Telerik reports inside a XAML control, but the only way i have been able to view the reports is via an iframe on top of the silverlight app. ( see below )

<

 

div id="silverlightControlHost">

 

 

 

<object data="data:application/x-silverlight-2," type="application/x-silverlight-2" width="100%" height="100%">

 

 

 

<param name="source" value="ClientBin/MenuManager.xap"/>

 

 

 

<param name="onerror" value="onSilverlightError" />

 

 

 

<param name="background" value="white" />

 

 

 

<param name="minRuntimeVersion" value="2.0.31005.0" />

 

 

 

<param name="autoUpgrade" value="true" />

 

 

 

<a href="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=124807" style="text-decoration: none;">

 

 

 

<img src="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=108181" alt="Get Microsoft Silverlight" style="border-style: none"/>

 

 

 

</a>

 

 

 

 

 

 

</object>

 

</div>

 

 

 

<iframe id="iframeReport" style="position:absolute;top:120px;left:0px;width:200px;height:200px;visibility:hidden;margin-left:15px;" src=""></iframe>

The above does view the reports but this sits over silverlight not in silverlight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
and the only way i can pass parameters is silverlight > .aspx > report viewer, it all works but very ugly, i was sue there must be a better way to achieve my goal.

Hi Richard,

There is currently no other way to do this and introducing a "true" silverlight viewer is not in our short-term plans.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best wishes,

Hi Steve,

It is a shame that you guys are not going to introduce this feature yet (if at all).  Dropping a report viewer onto a aspx page or windows form is very useful.  With the future release of Silverlight 3 on the way, the technique Richard mentioned will not be possible if the user was to run the app in "browerless" mode!

I think it would be wise for your team to reconsider the importance of such a control to the silverlight platform.

Apart from that....keep up the good work!

Hi Nick,

Thank you for the kind words. We have this in our features list and it would be considered for implementation. Generally the more people request this functionality, the bigger the chance is that we implement it sooner.

Hi guys,

In case you have missed the news, Telerik Reporting now supports Silverlight internally through the first Silverlight viewer in the industry.

Download Telerik Reporting Q3 2009 from your accounts and check the Silverlight Report Viewer help topic for more information.
