ReportViewer DatePicker Parameter - calendar not displayed when clicked

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi, I'm using VS2008 ReportViewer control and one of my reports in SSRS 2008 R2 has a DateTime parameter. I can enter the date into the textbox and view report successfully. However the calendar is not showing when I click the calendar icon. (Note: I encounter NO error).  It seems that it's a known issue in Visual Studio. Anyone knows any workaround/hack to fix this issue? Thanks in Advance, Raymond

reportviewer date parameter and calendar.. not working and javascript errors??



Hi, I've got this ssrs 2005 report that works great passing a few
security related parameters from asp.net codebehind. However, there
are two date related parameters that won't be coming from my web form,
but rather from the report form itself. When I test the report's date
parameters from visual studio it work fine, but when I attempt the
same report from a reportviewer no matter what input I place on the
report's date fields or even if I select the date picker, the report
simply resets to default and reloads. And actually the date picker
from the reportviewer does not not even pop up.


Here's my aspx code:

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false"
Inherits="_ReportViewer" MasterPageFile="~/Main/MasterPage.master"
    CodeFile="~/Reports/CashSales.aspx.vb"  Title="Cash Sales" %>

<%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms,
Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
    Namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" TagPrefix="rsweb" %>

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="Content1"

ReportViewer Calendar button Click does not show calendar


I have a reportviewer on a page which is grabbing a report from a report server. the page is basically just a dropdownlist and a reportviewer control. The problem I have is that in the report the user have to provide the dates for teh report. The reportviewer automatically adds the textbox for the date entry and a calendar icon in front of it so the user can select the date. if I look at this page  in FireFox, when you click on the calendar button created by the reportviewer, the calendar control show up momentrily and dispappears. If you look at the same page in IE 7.0 nothing happens other than the page appears to be submitted. Does any body have any ideas on how to go about troubleshooting this bug?

DatePicker calendar font size

Due to the fact that we have globally changed the TextBlock size, the DatePicker calendar does not display properly. The month at the top is too big and is getting cut off.   Is there a way to either override the font  size for the DatePicker to have its normal size or to directly set the size through a style? I tried this:   <Style TargetType="{x:Type CalendarItem}">     <Setter Property="TextElement.FontSize" Value="10"/> </Style>   But it didn't work. I could override the entire CalendarItem template but I'd rather not.

ReportViewer 2008 multi-select parameter alignment

We are using SSRS 2008 SP1 & ReportViewer 2008 SP1. The multi-select parameter options are left aligned in the drop-down listbox on the Report Server but when run thru ASP.Net & reportViewer, they are aligned in the center of the drop-down list. This is very problematic because the width of the drop-down is also narrow compared to the text size of the fields. I tried wrapping the ReportViewer in a Div tag (<div style="vertical-align: left; text-align: left">), but still no joy.  Would appreciate any help thanks.

Report parameter values must be specified before the report can be displayed. Choose parameter value


Helllo...I am getting error "Report parameter values must be specified before the report can be displayed. Choose parameter values in the parameters area and click the Apply button." when I deploy the report in the SharePoint. The report works fine in the when I run in BIDS. we have two parameter in this report...Parameter #1 is tied filterd based on the user who is accessing the report and Parameter #2 is dependent on the value selected in Parameter #1.

Please let me know what I am doing wrong here? Is there any workaround to get past this message?

Thanks for help.


Handling Errors displayed in the ReportViewer control


Hi, this kind of a two part question.  Is there any way to handle an error that is displayed inside a report, such as an error returned from a stored procedure?  I have a page with the ReportViewer control on it, but I don't really have any control over the rdl's or the sprocs, so it's possible that something will go wrong.  Currently I'm just getting the following error:

  • An error has occurred during report processing.
    • Query execution failed for dataset 'XXXX'.
      • For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors

If at all possible I would like to handle this error myself and show a message that's consistent with the rest of the site.  I've attempted to handle the ReportError event, but this seems to only fire when there's an issue with the viewer itself, not what it's showing.

Graphs are not being displayed in ReportViewer after upgrade to SQL Server 2008 R2


I am having a problem with my graphs disappearing after upgrading to Reporting Services 2008 R2.  The graphs are visible if the report is run from the Report Mananger but if the report is viewed from an ASP web app using ReportViewer 9.0 they disappear.  If the report is exported the graphs are there.  This is driving me crazy.

Calendar: Set Month Displayed Programmatically



The month being displayed does not seem to change when the SelectedDate is set to a date in other month, have to manually click the previous or next button to view the selected date.  I'd like to know if there's a way to set the selected month of the calendar control from code behind, something like calendar.selectedmonth = 1, so that when the selectedDate is 9 oct it'd jump to oct and if it's 9 nov it'd jump to nov automatically.

reportviewer does not prompt for a parameter


I have built visual basic windows forms application with Visual Studio 2010. I want to be able to create a report with a yes/no parameter that show either  a detail list or a summary only. I built such a report with a windows form and reportviewer. I used View>Report Data in the report design mde to create a "ShowAll" parameter but I am now unable to provide this parameter at runtime because the reportviewer does not prompt for a parameter. I found no visual basic code to set "ShowAll" parameter from a report form checkbox placed on the report form to the reportviewer.  How do I do it?

Reuse a gridview within calendar control


Hello, I have a calendar control that will have events displayed within each cell.

I want to use a pre formatted gridview and simply bind the gridview with a dataset dynamically and display it within the cell of the specified day.

Is there a way to do that or do I have to dynamically build a gridview for every day that there is an event? 

So here is the template gridview and datasource:

 <asp:SqlDataSource ID="sqlcalitemtemp" runat="server" 
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:NNTrainingdbconnection %>" 
        SelectCommand="SELECT NN_Fire_Events.Start_Time, NN_Fire_Events.End_Time, tblNN_Fire_Cli

Use a column as parameter for a sds in another column; gridview


Hola, I have a gridview which is bound to a sds which returns 7 columns and I added two columns from the GUI.  What I want is to fill up the 9th column with DDLs and these  DDLS will get their data from a different sds which is using a stored procedure with a single parameter.  I created the 9th row, used template field, made the sds for 9th row, the stored_procedure, threw a DDL in Item template and all  I need now is to pass a parameter in the first column to the sds in the 9th column.  I can code this but i'm getting tired of aspx.cs :) and would like to do it from the GUI.

UI Datepicker and web user controls



I have developed an application using the Master-Detail pattern described in this Matt Berseth article.

The only difference between Matt's article and me is that I am using a FormView object in place of a DetailsView.

Everything works fine except that the formview object, in my case it's inside a user control and I can't figure out how to use the jquery datepicker UI plugin.

I have tried to put the script block for the datepicker either in the aspx page as well as inside the user control but in both cases the calendar does not come up when the related textbox get the focus.

Any suggestion on how to work with the datepicker inside an ascx?

thanks in advance!
