Hi,
XtraReport designer can use a SqlDataAdapter configured with a stored procedure and SelectCommand parameters, than generate a DataSet from the SqlDataAdapter and assign it to the report designer, so in the designer you can drag and drop the fields you want onto the the page and preview the live data.
I can assign a entity query to the report page's DataSource at runtime, but this require me to draw print links manually in the code and can't preview the result at design time.
How can I use DevForce with the DevExpress XtraReport designer (replace the SqlDataAdapter,connection string etc)?

Regards,

This is really a question for Developers Express: how to use their XtraReport report designer with an object model rather than a DataSet source.  It used not to be possible, but that was a couple of years ago, and as common as object models are now, they may have forged a solution.

This might be a place to start:

Hi there,  I've done reporting with the DevForce Classic tool and devexpress reports and now that I'm starting a Silverlight application I'll let you know if this works in a few weeks.
