Integration in Lightswitch 2012

Good morning,

I bought the Enterprise Studio Suite when the competitive upgrade offer was in place in January, then I had no time to test it in my production environment.

I use Lightswitch 2012 and need to show invoices to the user. Until now I use Devexpress extrareports for it but it Always had been unstable (at best), and with the last update it (again) gives an error when deployed (NEVER on development machine, always when you think it's all ok... :) )


Anyway, I've seen your viewer and it would be great integrating it inside Lightswitch, but I don't understand how.... I have a WCF that I could use to pass the data, but it seems to me that I left something behind....


I would appreciate any help you could give.


Thank you

Samuele Gaggioli

Hi Samuele ,


Thanks for your interest in syncfusion products .

If you are using RDL report WCF ReportingService needed for retrieve the data source and export the Reports(Not supported to retrieve data from database in this platform itself.).

For RDLC reports ReportingService needed for exporting functionality alone.  Because we have to do some image related process with visual tree to export few ReportItem elements, but that is not supported in this platform itself.

We  have attached sample Light Switch application and WCF Service application . Please find from following location .

Please let me know if you have any questions .
