Established reports render nothing after upgrading

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi, all and thanks.


First, let me say I'm not sure if this is a report problem or a dataset problem...that said, here's what is going on...


I recently upgraded a web site from vwd2005 targeting framework 2.0  to vs2010 targeting framework 3.5 with related update to the web.config.  I'm migrating my reports that were built using reportviewer control in vwd2005 to vs2010; in doing so, I accept the prompt to upgrade to the RDLC 2008 format and the upgrade goes ok for the rdlc files (insofar as I can tell).  I then go and update my 1st report's aspx page to the new reportviewer control by drag-n-drop (the page is updated with the register assembly call and the web.config's compilation/assemblies and compilation/buildproviders are also updated).  I then update the rest of my aspx pages that contain a report.  After making the updates to each report's aspx page, I run the report to validate I have a working report.


I use objectdatasource on all the reports except one, which uses a sqldatasource control; about half of the reports take a parameter from the user--like a date range or a person's name.  These reports render nothing when the parameter is passed and don't even throw an error.  Those that do not take a parameter render just fine

SSRS Reports Render Using Batch Script


Is there any batch script method by which SSRS reports can be rendered to required format PDF/Excel just by double clicking a batch


ReportExecutionService.Render multi page reports and secondary streams (2008R2)


Hello.  I found the example that uses 'streamIDs' to determine the number of pages in the rendered report.  However, steamIDs always returns a zero length array.

The workaround to get all the pages in the report:

  pages = new Byte[0][];
  numberOfPages = 1;
  byte[] currentPageStream = new byte[1] {0x00}; // put a byte to get the loop started
  while (currentPageStream.Length > 0)
   deviceInfo = String.Format(@"<DeviceInfo>" + _deviceInfoAddl + "<StartPage>{0}</StartPage></DeviceInfo>", numberOfPages);
   currentPageStream = _renderEngine.Render(_renderFormat.Name, deviceInfo, out extension, out encoding, out mimeType, out warnings, out streamIDs);
   if (currentPageStream.Length == 0 && numberOfPages == 1)
   renderException = EnumRenderException.ZERO_LENGTH_STREAM;

Problem upgrading to MVC3 - System.Web.Routing



I'm trying to upgrade to .NET 4 and MVC 3.

When trying to compile my project, I get the error:

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:\Users\spencer\Desktop\weblauncher\Common\MVCConfig.cs 4 18 Common

The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

I do have the System.Web.Routing in my references for the project.

BUT - when I try to view System.Web.Routing in the OBJECT BROWSER, nothing is inside!  The System.Web.Routing namespace is not in there - the entire thing is empty!  Could it that the dll is corrupted?  I tried to reinstall the .NET 4 and MVC 3 stuff, but its still empty!

The dll is coming from here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0\System.Web.Routing.dll

and the runti

UpdatePanel is not a known element - message when upgrading to 1.0 ajax


It worked on one of my old pages.  I change the web.config, renamed all the <asp.

On some aspx page it doesn't recognize the updatepanel.  It only does on one page.  If I create a new aspx page with a different name - then it works.

Should I just create a new web project ajax - then copy all my code into there?  Or is there a way to get those old pages to recognize the new ajax controls?

Session with Crystal Reports on IE 8



Having a very wierd problem.  I have an application that uses Crystal Reports and it uses what I have found to be a common scenario (I am not a CR expert in any way).  I have an ASPX page that gathers options for the report, and then it goes and gets the data and if there is some, a button appears for them to launch the report.  On clicking that button, the code sets some values in the HttpResponse.Context area, then performs a Server.Transfer to another ASPX page that is our Report Template.  This page contains the CR stuff and it generates a PDF version of the report.  It then does the following code:

 With HttpContext.Current.Response
            .ContentType = "application/pdf"
            .AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=Report.pdf")

I need to develop 3 pages.

On the first page user defines atmost 7 column names to be displayed on the report. I'm saving these names in a Sql DB table 'Columns' with Column_Nm and Column_ID as Table columns.

On the second page I'm retrieving column_Nm from the table and displaying them on the page so that the user enters the data. This data is saved in another table 'Summary' with the Columns column1 through column7.
