Using Silverlight 5 with MVVM and I want to implement reports. If I create a report in the stand alone designer using a sql data source to do the layout can I then take the trdx file and bind it to a report viewer.

In the SL app I want to retrieve the data from the WCF when the asynch call is completed I wish to assign the TRDX file/stream to the  ReportSource and the List<> to the DataSource and put the result into an observable object (in the viewmodel) that the ReportViewer can be bound to.

Is this scenario possible and if so is there an example (I know you guys are big on examples I have more than 20)

Hello Mark,

To use XML report definitions(trdx files) in Silverlight application you need to create custom report resolver as explained in the How to: Implement and use custom IReportResolver help article and the Extending Telerik Reporting Service with Custom IReportResolver blog post. In the custom resolve method you can add any custom logic for supplying data and passing report documents to a ReportViewer control.

I hope this helps.
