RDL Report Design Specification Template

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi all,
Don't think this is suitable to post the question here but I found no where to put it.
May i know where can I get the sample template for report functional design specification?

The design specification must be helpful in requirement gathering and make sure the report developed correctly.

It should include:
1. input filters
2. dataset and its search condition
3. report layout - title, table / matrix, chart
4. what to include in header / footer

creating different sub page design template in sharepoint website


I know very little about sharepoint and have outsourced the design of a master page and sub page design for a new website using sharepoint. i received a site master file with all of the necessary images and the home page works just fine. However the file i received for the sub page design template was an ASPX file with the following instructions:


Here I enclosed the inner page layout file. You upload this file by using following instructions. you can change & edit the blue menu section in the master page itself. If I change into modifiable section you need to add the menu in each and every page, otherwise it will show as empty block. Please let me know your comments.


Steps for uploading inner page layout page.

Make dynamic changes to ReportViewer Report design InteractiveSize property


Hello all,

Could someone share with me how to dynamically change the Report design InteractiveSize property?  I want to use a radiobutton list which has two options (complete list, paginated list) which changes the height of the Report display.  I wonder if I need to use the Report Parameters but how do I change and refresh to display the selected option.  Thank you.


Advanced HTML Report Design

Aside from using Reporting Services an such - I was wondering if there were any suggestions to this logic: * ASP.NET Repeaters to generate the output of the report - sortable columns. * Use SQL Stored Procedures to generate the data. My painful hurdle right now is sorting (eventually implement throttling with SQL paging). I really don't want to do stored procedure sorting nor do I want to call the stored procedure every time I want to sort. So my solutions I've came up with so far: 1. Store a datatable in session and do sorting on it and bind it to the repeater. 2. Store the datatable as xml form in a blob field in SQL database - when the user sorts, we retrive the xml, convert to datatable, then sort, rebind repeater. 3. Insert all the report data into a "temp" (a more permenant table used just for storing output) sql table, and just perform queries off of it with sorting. - I really don't like this option. Does anyone else have any suggestions? Is it the norm out there to use reporting services? I'm wondering what everyone else is doing when it comes to web based reporting without licensing other products. Thanks in advance,Reece

Report Service Design Questions


Hey all,

after 3 weeks working with SQL and RS i'm done.

Now i've got some problems with the design..


my first question;

There are several pages saved in a PDF, and I've created a header. Now I need to get an issue where the header only is viewed on the first page. But if I select in properties "Print options" it works only for the first and last page but i need it also between.


my second question;

In my report is a tablix where i need "break page". But if i select "start" or "start and end" it display the first page without the tablix (header and footer displayed) and if select "end" it wont work.


my third question;

I need to show another Tablix on every page. how can i do that?

Design question in Report Manager?

When you view/launch a report by clicking on it in Report Manager you get a "double arrow" on the right side of the window with the help text "Full screen". If you push that button the top area with links to for example "Site settings" disapears. Is there any way to make that the default setting when you view a report?

I cant find anything about this in my books, can anyone help me?

Abstract Factory Design in C# , Vb.NET

Provide an interface for creating families of related or dependent objects without specifying their concrete classes

Prototype Design Pattern in C#. Vb.NET

Specify the kind of objects to create using a prototypical instance, and create new objects by copying this prototype

Adapter Design Pattern in C#, VB.NET

Convert the interface of a class into another interface clients expect. Adapter lets classes work together that couldn't otherwise because of incompatible interfaces.

Singleton Design Pattern in C#, Vb.NET

Ensure a class has only one instance and provide a global point of access to it.

Solidify Your C# Application Architecture with Design Patterns

design pattern can solve many problems by providing a framework for building an application. Design patterns, which make the design process cleaner and more efficient, are especially well-suited for use in C# development because it is an object-oriented language. Existing design patterns make good templates for your objects, allowing you to build software faster. This article describes several popular design patterns you can use in your own applications, including the singleton, the decorator, the composite, and the state classes, which can improve the extensibility of your applications and the reuse of your objects.

What Are Design Patterns and Do I Need Them?

Software professionals may be familiar with the term "Design Patterns," but many have no idea of where they come from and what they truly are. Consequently, some do not see the value and benefits design patterns bring to the software development process, especially in the areas of maintenance and code reuse.
