Thank you for your interest in Telerik Reporting and your suggestion.
Currently the WCF Service can be used only for the Silverlight Web Viewer. We would have your suggestion in mind when working on subsequent versions of the product. However currently it is not in our immediate plans to change the WPF Report Viewer to use the Telerik Reporting WCF report service and we cannot engage with a timeframe for such functionality.Sincerely yours,
the Telerik team
Would appreciate any help you can give me.
I have found this article http://forums.silverlight.net/t/1178.aspx/1 that discuss the Silverlight control in a WPF application topic.
However you can consume the report data from a WCF service but let WPF report viewer to generate reports. This is shown in http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/posts/10-10-22/using-telerik-reporting-with-wcf-ria-services.aspx
Can the WPF report viewer be used with the WCF report service? If so is there any example code for this?
I have had the Silverlight report viewer working with the WCF service but now I need to use the WPF report viewer. Do I need to stop using the WCF report service and start using the REST report service?
WCF report service can be used by the Reporting Silverlight ReportViewer control only.
WPF Report Viewer can use its embedded reporting engine or connect to Reporting REST service/Report Server.
