Report Designer (Visual Studio.NET) Expressions Pgm Language

  • I noted in a MS SQL RS help file, that the language for writing expressions within reports is VB.NET.  Within our IT dept, our standard language is C#, which we try to adhere to. Does this report Designer have the flexibility to choose the language you use within expressions, or is your only choice VB.NET?


  • AFAIK, the answer is no, however, allowing users to develop extensive expressions embedded in reports is just asking for troubles. In enterprise environment I would recommend restricting expression code to calling custom assemblies which, naturally, can be in any .NET language. See on using custom assemblies with Report Services.
