Microsoft SSRS viewer in Silverlight

Some time back we had a scenario of showing reports in Silverlight.Our first though was to create reports in ASP.Net and show that as popup window from Silverlight.But in the research we found out a great tool from Perpetuum softwares which renders the SSRS report inside Silverlight.

Main advantages were it capability to leverage features of Silverlight such as Vector graphics.We can zoom the report without losing it's clarity.

Online demo is available here .You need to install only Silverlight 3 in order view the report.

Basically it works by adding a component at the server side which makes the report compatible with their Silverlight viewer.Currently it supports SQL Server Reporting Services 2005 only.

Good work Perpetuum guys.Keep it up.
