Using the ReportViewer Control in a WebForm with Parameters

  • This is awesome, I have always wondered how to embed reporting services in my applications. I will have to give this a try.

    Just out of curiosity, do you know if this control suffers from the same browser problems that reporting services itself does? Namely it doesn't render anywhere near correctly in Firefox.

  • does anyone know where the class ProcessingMode came from? Two of the .dll's were automatically added to my project but I had to go searching for ProcessingObjectModel, found it in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies\Microsoft.ReportingServices.ProcessingObjectModel.dll, added the reference but still get compile errors. I'm using VS2008.

  • never mind, I found it,

  • Hi Jereme,

    I've been using mainly IE and it renders great from there. Honestly, I haven't tried FireFox, but that's a great question. My guess that it there may be some issues with rendering in other non-IE browsers. I will set up a Firefox and Netscape test environment and see what happens...


  • looks like tooltips dont work from the report viewer control in VS2008, other graphical items look good so far. MS seems to be saying tool tips are on their radar.

  • Are you using the Feb. CTP?

  • of VS?

  • Actually I was curious of the version of SQL. But, since we're on the subject, are you using VS 08?

  • yes, great article, I tried your example successfully in VS2005 and VS2008. Had to add one line to the render method reportViewer1.RefreshReport(); after reportViewer1.Visible = true;

    My db is ss2005, I think MS is saying that fixing tool tips would be a VS, not SS change, the guy who responded to the question monitors Katmai discussions.

    Maybe I should add that I'm using your model in winforms.

  • Good article. It answered some of the queries about using Reporting service....


  • Hi,

    I am trying to show a report from a server by clicking a button.

    I do these things as

    Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportViewer form = new Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportViewer();

    Uri url = new Uri("http://server_name/reportserver");

    form.ServerReport.ReportServerUrl = url;

    form.ServerReport.ReportPath = "/report_folder/report";

    I want to open the form as when I preview the report in Report Server Project in Priview Tab

    Kind Regards.

  • Hi,

    I think the effect you are trying to achieve is to hide/show

    the report on demand. What you can do is set the visible

    property of the report viewer control to false, and then

    set it to true in the OnClick event of the button that you

    click to show the report.

    Hope this helps!
