I have designed a few reports in Business Intelligence and I had hoped I could extend this to the rdl reporting in Syncfusion.  However, I've found that where I can pass in-memory data (in XML format) to the report in BI, I don't seem able to do the same in Report Designer.
It won't let me specify element names and subsequently field names, to allow parsing of the data, so I have no idea of how to format xml passed as either a parameter, or as a file in IIS.
Is this normal operation, or have I missed something?

Hi Alan,


Thanks for using Syncfusion products.


We don’t have support to load memory data in ReportDesigner, it supports for XML DataSource with empty query string. We have logged feature request for the supports and  it will be available in our upcoming release.

I thought it may be useful to provide a project showing what we'd like to see, so that you can understand it.  The report inside contains a Master report and a Details report (which is the supreport inside the master.
XML is passed as a parameter to the Master report and this is then also passed as a parameter to the subreport, where totalling, etc, is performed.
You'll also see that the dataset properties in each case have the ability to parse the XML from the query string provided to output to the releveant report fields.
