In real life, customers have always asked for possibility to print, customers with a limited budget also cannot and wil not pay for lengthy development cycles. In the past I've often used MS-Access to solve this problem, mostly as a front end UI for a SQL-server (express) database. Now very often I am able to offer a Lightswitch solution. But MS-Access has always had a huge advantage over other RAD solutions: it can print reports and the reports can be quite complex - from pivo tables with variable nr of columns to reports with many levels of grouping, to bills, labels, and so on.
Now I need to tackle this hurdle for LightSwitch, so the natural solution for me would be to use what is available in VS2010 and on SQL server. If at all possible I do not want to buy additional reporting tools, been there done that.
As a first step I will investigate this article by Michael Washington about Printing Sql Server Reports (.rdlc) With LightSwitch
