Report Viewer Control and Passing Paramaters

Hi Guys, I have a situation where I am created a WEB APP that has a submit button on a FORM on the first ASPX page.  I have some VB code behind that to generate Header and Lines records in two tables with a HEADER ID as my PK.  I have another ASPX page which has the Report Viewer control on it and prompts me for the HEADER ID and displays the report correctly when I manually enter the HEADER ID.What I am now trying to achieve is when the user clicks the submit button on the FORM I want it to redirect to the other ASPX page and pass through the Header ID as a Parameter and automatically display the REPORT. Can somebody please point me in the right direction to achieve this.ThanksJoel 

Printing Landscape Report using the Print Control of the ASP.NET Report Viewer

I am using the ASP.NET Report Viewer 2010 web control in remote processing mode connected to a SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 R2 report server in Native Mode. I am viewing the report in IE8 and the print control within the report viewer is available. According to "Printing Reports from a Browser Using the Print Control" at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159237.aspx  "The Print dialog box and the default printer settings for width, height, and page orientation are determined by the report definition." In SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio I am using the “Report Properties” window accessed from the “Report” menu to set the Orientation to “Landscape”, the paper size to “Letter”, the Width to “11in”, and the Height to “8.5in” in the report definition. When viewing the report using the ASP.NET Report Viewer 2010 in IE8 and exportint to PDF, the report renders correctly in landscape orientation and the size both on screen and printed is as defined in the report definition. However, if I print it directly from the ASP.NET Report Viewer using the Print Control the print preview shows the report correctly in landscape orientation and page size, but the resulting printout is in portrait orientation and skewed or cropped.  If I go into the properti

Graphs stop displaying in Report Viewer Control after upgrade to SSRS 2008 R2

We are seeing an issue where certain graphs and guages are not being displayed within a report rendered in the report viewer control after we upgraded from SSRS 2008 to SSRS 2008R2.  You can see the graphs and guages render and then disappear from the screen when two other graphs are rendered.  When I export the report to Excel or PDF then all of the graphs and guages are rendered properly. There are a total of 3 graphs and 2 guages on the report - when it completes the rendering process, you can only see two of the graphs displayed in the report viewer control - as I said before, you can see all 3 graphs and 2 guages when exporting to Excel or PDF.  Using Internet Explorer v8.  This problem manifest itself right after the upgrade. Has anyone seen a similar issue?

JavaScript Error while calling a drill through report in a report viewer from a asp.net web page.


I am calling a report in a web page which is getting displayed in report viewer. This report comes fine but when I click on it to see the drill through report for this parent report the drill through report does not get displayed and I see a JScript error instead.

The error I get is something like,

parent.document.GetElementByID(...).ClientController is not null or not an object

The aspx page that contains the report viewer inherits from a master page that contains an Update Panel.

I tested the report separately in SSRS and the drill through is working fine there.

Can some one please provide any inputs on this one?

Report Viewer control: Print crashes if subreport is too long



I have a report and a .NET 3.5 Winforms application which displays the report in local mode, passing the required datasets to the report as it is supposed to do. It takes about 2 seconds before the report is displayed.

However, when I click on Print Layout, the "Loading..." box appears and does not disappear any more. If I want to print the report, a window appears telling me that the first page is being sent to the printer and... that's it, all I can do is kill my application via task manager.

After playing around with various elements in my report, I was able to reproduce this behaviour if one of my subreport returns too many rows (the subreport contains only a list element, listing all records).

I believe it has something to do with the subreport spanning more than one page. I played with the KeepTogether property on various elements, but to no avail. Has anybody experienced something like this before? Is there a workaround?

Report Viewer 10 / "Not a trusted assembly" error



We updated our application to VS2010 / .NET 4.0. We are using the WinForms Report Viewer control to display .rdlc files. Some of the files reference framework DLLs (System.Core, System.Drawing, System.Xml)

*If* I use the deprecated methods, everything works. 

Set the CAS policy to legacy in the app.config:

<NetFx40_LegacySecurityPolicy enabled="true" />

Trust the assembly:

_reportViewer.LocalReport.AddTrustedCodeModuleInCurrentAppDomain("System.Drawing, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a");

HOWEVER: I would like to not depend on the deprecated method. If I do this, instead:

            PermissionSet permissions = new PermissionSet(PermissionState.None);

            permissions.AddPermission(new FileIOPermission(PermissionState.Unrestricted));

            permissions.AddPermission(new SecurityPermission(SecurityPermissionFlag.Execution));


            Assembly asmSystemDrawing = Assembly.Load("System.Drawing, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=
