Stimulsoft Reports.Silverlight is a reporting tool created for the Silverlight platform. The product consists of three parts. The first part is a set of ASP.NET components for viewing and editing in the Web browser. Report rendering occurs on the server. Showing and editing report goes on the client side using the whole palette of capabilities of Silverlight. The second part is a fully featured reporting tool for Silverlight, which uses only Silverlight to render, edit, print, and export reports. The third part is an independent (standalone) report designer for the WinForms platform. It is designed to create reports and for further use with other components.
Silverlight and ASP.NET report viewer
Stimulsoft Reports.Silverlight offers to use the ASP.NET component for viewing reports. Its client part is developed using the Silverlight technology. This makes it possible to display and use reports in the web-application with the same quality and with the same functionality as in desktop applications. We did not make a regular report viewer, simplified for Silverlight. We tried to make the most functional component, as far as we were allowed to make it in Silverlight. The interface of the report viewer is more functional, more dynamic, and more interactive than the standard interfaces in a web browser. No limitations of HTML technology. Moreover, our viewer is more presentable than many report viewers for desktop applications.
Silverlight and ASP.NET report designer
From the supplied configuration, you can also find the report designer, available as an ASP.NET component. The client part of this component works with the Silverlight technology. This component provides the ability to edit reports in the browser window when only Silverlight Runtime is on the client side. And the report designer provides a complete set of tools for editing reports. And this report designer is as good as the one of the desktop version.
