    i'm new to the telerik reporting. I'm using it for WPF application in which all the data are fetched from the WCF service

    In the same way, i would like to use the Datasource from the wcf service to the Reporting class. Its very difficult for us to implement the datasource which is not fetching the data

    Can you please let me know how to add wcf service as the Datasource for the reporting library?

    A sample working project would be really helpful for me to implement the same

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Ramesh,

    Please check the example in Connecting Telerik Reporting to OData feeds.
    In general, you can create a service client that fethes data and loads it in a data object. The data object can be consumed in reports via ObjectDataSource component.

    Reports displayed in a WPF ReportViewer will be processed and rendered locally at the client's machine. If you want reports to be processed and rendered remotely and only to be displayed in the WPF ReportViewer, you can create a separate web application hosting a Reporting REST service - How To: Use WPF Report Viewer with Report Server|REST Service.

    I hope this information is helpful.
