Microsoft Reporting Services 2005/2008/2012 in Silverlight Applications is Possible

Silverlight Viewer for Reporting Services is the first product on the market which provides the ability to view Reporting Services reports in Silverlight applications. This is a native Silverlight control that easily integrates into any Silverlight application. Thus, it is possible to use the whole set of features which are, as a rule, available in the classical desktop applications, including dynamic scaling and smooth panning with animation, interactive sorting, search and so on.

Silverlight Viewer can be used in applications, located directly on the html pages, and in the out-of-browser mode.

The main competitive advantages of the Silverlight Viewer for Reporting Services product are:

  • Printing of Reporting Services reports from Silverlight.
  • WYSIWYG report preview in web browsers with support for scaling, scrolling, panning. The reports are displayed in vector representation. This provides high quality appearance of the report which is impossible to achieve with conversion to html.
  • Support for Out-of-browser mode.
  • Abilities of the full-functional applications: search, interactive sorting, dynamic zooming, navigation through the reports via hyperlinks, input of the report parameters by the user and so on.
  • Drilldown.
  • Smooth animation during the manipulations with reports, no sudden changes on the display occur when you scroll, zoom in or out or navigate the report.
  • Support for styles and skins allow the changing design of any control elements.
  • Reports export to PDF, Excel, Html, Cvs, Xml, Mhtml, TIFF.
  • Automatic fonts load.

Use functionality of the Silverlight technology for displaying Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services reports!


Please also be advised that Silverlight Viewer for Reporting Services 2005 and Silverlight Viewer for Reporting Services 2008 are quite different products which are incompatible with each other. In order to avoid all the possible problems you should download only one of them depending on the version of Reporting Services you use. Generation of local reports is possible only with Silverlight Viewer for Reporting Services 2005 and Visual Studio 2008.
