Telerik Watch Minute: Connecting Reporting to OpenAccess ORM

Telerik has two great products that- when combined- can enable very cool, object-driven reporting. Those products are, of course, Telerik Reporting and Telerik OpenAccess ORM. While the integration between these products is not nearly as "tight" as it's going to be in the future, you can already use these two products together with today's bits and a (very) little bit of code. In this TWM, I show you how to build a simple report that binds directly to an OpenAccess ORM DAL that's been reverse engineered from the AdventureWorks database. This episode is a little longer than nomral (about 12 minutes), but it shows you everything you need to know to get started using these two products together. Enjoy!
