Hi,
I have to create a .net C# windows application for rdlc designer to edit reports.This application should be able to call the reports designer and edit  the rdlc.I saw the Microsoft provides a  Microsoft.ReportDesigner.dll,but there is no ReportDesigner custom control or exe that i can directly call in my app .Can anyone guide me how to create this app.
Thanks,

Hmmm...I don't remember hearing that the Microsoft.ReportDesigner supports that level of design, but I do know about creating custom components for the Visual Studio report designer.

I am not saying that it can't be done, but I just haven't heard of a way, yet...

I would be VERY interested in an answer, if there was one to be found!!

Are you looking to design .rdlc files from your application?  Report files are open XML, and it is possible to develop your own simple designer, and create/modify the XML for the report.
