Hi!

I have built a very simple report: in the constructor of the report a textbox is added to the detail section showing the actual date and time. I can call the report from Silverlight and it works as expected. Fine! But clicking the refresh-button in ReportViewer is NOT calling the report again, instead it is presenting the old one (I can determine this by looking at the time string which is not changing). What am I doing wrong?

This affects Reporting 6.1.12.820 with SL 5.

Regards
Neils

Hello,

I need to see your report before giving you any suggestions. Please, take a look at attached movie (Now-movie.zip) where you can see how I test your scenario. The report source is Report1.zip which is also included.

Hi,

the report is just a simple modification of one of Telerik's examples:

public Report1()
{
    //
    // Required for telerik Reporting designer support
    //
    InitializeComponent();
 
    Telerik.Reporting.TextBox textBox1 = new Telerik.Reporting.TextBox
        {
            Location = new PointU(Unit.Inch(0.3), Unit.Inch(0.3)),
            Size = new SizeU(Unit.Inch(3.4), Unit.Inch(0.4)),
            Value = "Hello from Telerik Reporting at " + DateTime.Now.ToLongTimeString()
        };
 
    this.detail.Items.Add(textBox1);
 
}

The time displayed is not refreshed. Does it mean that the report is not created again?

Short addition: I took a look at your example. The difference is that your "textBox1.Value" is set inside the InitializeComponent of Report1.Designer.cs whereas my textbox is added in the constructor of the Report1 class itself.

Hello,

The answer to your question "... The time displayed is not refreshed. Does it mean that the report is not created again?" is Yes. The instance of the report is created only once.
