Most examples for the reporting i have seen are reports that run in silverlight but retrieve their data from a database maybe based on parameters passed to the report svc from the silverlight application. I am working on a application that has a local database in the form of an XML files and images embedded in the silverlight application.
I am trying to use telerik reporting to create a report based on this local data and images. How can I get this data from the silverlight application to the report without using a sql database reference.

Hi mrezam,

As far as the Silverlight Report Viewer is concerned (as of now) is that the reports reside and are processed entirely on the server side; there is no report object on the client side. In order to bind a report to data please follow the instructions in Connecting Data to a Report help article. As far as the report data binding and processing is performed entirely server side (through the Telerik Reporting WCF Service) there is no way to pass any data context from Silverlight back to the server.

Sincerely yours,

Hi,

I am creating a small silverlight application.
I am using various classes to display some information in a grid. I want to allow user to click on a separate link to generate a report. I want to open the report in a separate browser.   
Also, i want to display a report book (using rad book or like wise) containing multiple pages and each page will show a list of items for each item type. 

Can i use telerik reporting for this purpose? If yes, can i pass the list of items and item type to generate the report? If not, is there any other option to create such kind of report in silverlight?

Regards.
