I suggest you ...

Add file output support for Excel, PDF, XPS, etc.

In addition to being able to print and offer basic reporting, Line of Business apps need to easily be able to output to Excel, PDF, XPS. If I show a data grid with Sales Data to a VP at my company, they are going to want that data in Excel in one click.

        Reporting services is easy to use in silverlight, just open new html window in which report is rendered. You can pass parameters to report.

        These posts have been very helpful! Thank you, I'll be sure to use your advice. Personally, I had some problems converting excel files over to PDF. Then I found this program at my work that quickly and painlessly converts my excel documents into pdf so I didn't have to do it manually (which would end up taking aggravating hours upon hours). It provides my business a simple way to make individualized statements for our business associates. Check it out <a href=“http://www.nirvaha.com/excel-to-pdf.html”>here</a>.

        Need of PDF print.
        Also setting page layout and printer without Print dialog would be really fine.
        Example / printing parcel labels from thin client app.
