Hi,
I started to use Telerik Reporting, and I have one question:
Can I set the report's Data Source to XML Data Source in external Report Designer?
Thanks in advance!

Hello,

It is in our plans to extend the collection of existing data sources and provide you with means to directly use XML, CSV, Excel files as data source for your reports. Meanwhile, you will have to read the XML into a DataSet or other custom business object in order to use it in a report. Then you can utilize the assembly that reads the XML as elaborated in the How to use external assemblies with custom CLR objects in the Report Designer KB article.
