Is there a way to specify the ReportDataSource in the domain service as we like to use a generic report viewer we just pass a report to and the data.

So we build every thing in the domain service and just pass what we need to the Silverlight frontend.

So no manipulation is done at all at the Silverlight side it all done server side!!

If I reference the Silverlight report dll in my domain service I get the following


Error 2 The Complex Type 'Syncfusion.Windows.Reports.ReportDataSource' already exists in another assembly. Complex Types cannot be defined in multiple assemblies. ReportApp

As I said I like to do the following:

    Public Function GetReportDataSource() As ReportDataSource
       Dim r As New ReportDataSource
       r.Name = "SalesPerson"
       r.Value = staff
       Return r
    End Function
Can the Syncfusion.ReportViewer.Silverlight be ref in both project as I like to build the ReportDataSource
 in the domain service and just pass this to the viewer!

We have prepared Silverlight application to demonstrate the procedure to get Report and Report Datasource from service and input it to ReportViewer. Please find sample in the following location.

The example not quite what I wanted to do I wanted to do it through a domain service not a WCF service.
