Hi Artur,

Currently the Telerik Reporting Service and respectively the Silverlight report viewer can't use the XML report definitions. However we will include an option to utilize the trdx files in the next internal build or service pack.

Kind regards,

Hi Artur,

Up to your question you can set the Silverlight report viewer Report property to a trdx report definition or assembly qualified name of a report class. If you need to a more custom report source resolving solution for example if you keep the report definitions in database check out the How to: Implement and use custom IReportResolver help article.

Hello Inna,

Currently the XML report definitions don't support localization. This is limitation that is logged in our TODO list for research and implementation. In the meantime our suggestion is to use the Visual Studio designer and localize the reports as elaborated in Localizing Reports help article.

Hello, Peter.
Is situation with support of localization in xml report definition changed?
Why not just keep translations in files like .de-DE.trdxr. Those files can contain only key/value for fields to be replaced when different CurrentCulture is set?

Hello Savva,

We've not worked on the xml localization feature yet. Please use the suggested workaround for the time being.

Hello,

Is it now possible to use the .trdx report files in our Silverlight 5 apps?

If so, is there a help document available that describes the steps required to get it working?

Please let us know and thanks!

Hi Dave,

The xml report definition files (.trdx) are standard xml files and they can be used in any project. Whenever you have a Silverlight project (irrelevant of the target Silverlight version), you have to place the reports in the application that hosts your Silverlight application.

All the best,
Steve

Thanks for the reply.

Awesome! Are there any code samples that demonstrate how to "wire it up" and how to connect it to an Entity Framework 4 Data Service?

What I'd really like to do is place the .trdx files into a database (as a blob) so that they are not part of the build / application (XAP) that I deploy. Then, when users select a report (created specifically for their City and State) it will be downloaded from the db and then populated as needed with their data.

Then, I can have a separate team of developers creating / updating reports for our users without having to edit the main project. I also like to keep the XAP files / projects as small as possible. So, keeping the reports out of the project would be great.

Anyway, if you can share some ideas or links to sample code, it would be most appreciated!

Thanks again!

~ Dave

Hello Dave,

We highly recommend giving the standalone Report Designer a drive more carefully to avoid any confusion. The XML report definition can be bound to any of the supported Data Source Components including the EntityDataSource Component. For more information on binding to Entity Data model, refer to:
and also all articles in the EntityDataSource section in the documentation.

About the deployment, you can store the reports in your database as XML (see XmlReportSource) or as files/uri to files via the UriReportSource.

Steve

Hello,

Thanks for the reply. I have some additional questions but I think I will open a support ticket so I don't clutter this forum post with my weird issue. I'll update this post once I've got a working solution in place.

Thanks!
