Report viewer is a viewer component for displaying reports defined in Microsoft’s RDL format (2008 or 2008 R2) from within your Silverlight applications. Using report viewer, you can display tabular, graphical, or free-form reports that make use of relational, multidimensional, XML, and object data sources. With client-side reports, just refer the viewer to an RDL(C) file and a data source allowing it to process and render the report. With server reports, point the viewer to an RDL file on the SSRS server to render the report.
