SSRS Chinese not rendering in IE

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I have a report with chinese text in it using SQL Reporting Services. The report comes up fine in FireFox, but in IE the chinese characters do not come up correctly (they are little boxes instead of characters). If I save to PDF the chinese characters come up. I have played with the page/encoding settings in IE, but no luck. Anyone have thoughts? thanks d

SSRS 2008 R2 Rendering Performance

I am implementing a matrix report in SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 R2.  There are about 37 rows and 10 columns where each cell has an Indicator graphic (so about 370 cells).  The report shows loading for a few seconds but then freezes for about 2-3 minutes before the report pops up. Other matrix reports without the indicators seem to render just fine. Is there some way to improve the performance of reports such as these with many indicators in each cell?

SSRS 2008 - HTML3.2 Rendering

In our prior install of SSRS we were able to render reports using the URL and rs:Format=HTML3.2   It now appears I can only select HTML4.0 but I can't find anything to verify that 3.2 support was dropped.   We really really need to be able to maintain rendering reports in HTML3.2.   Can anyone confirm if this is still possible, and how I would go about it.   Thanks.

SSRS 2008 R2 Charts Not Rendering Correctly (Clipped)

When I add charts and gauges to my reports they are always clipped. The bottom and right hand portions don't appear on the report. It appears they are being rendered too large. No matter how big I make the chart, gauge, report it gets clipped. However, if I export to PDF or Excel the full chart (didn't try the gauge) does appear. I have reproduced this IE8 and Firefox. I am running everything on a Windows 7 machine.

Table rendering Bug: Setting Background color for SSRS report (RDLC)



I am facing the issue while trying to create a Report Definition Language Client-side (RDLC) report. I want to set background color to the textbox (used in table) depending on the value.

Traditional Chinese text flows into right Margin area when exporting to Word - SSRS 2008 R2



I've a Master Report which contains many sub reports. The page size is 11 X 8.5. I've set the .5 top & bottom margins for the Master page & set .5 left & right margins for all the sub reports.

The report renders fine when exporting to pdf. But while exporting to WORD it didn't show up any margins except left. So I copied just the Master page(for Word) and added an empty text box of size .5 on top & bottom. This work around works fine for English. But for Traditional chinese the text flows into right margin area. Left, Top & bottom margins are fine. And I really don't want to change the sub report settings since it works fine for pdf.

Any help would be appreciated!




SSRS Reporting Services issue with Rendering Report.


I have created a report that has a tablix with a single cell.  The tablix is set to a dataset that has multiple records, and for each record I am running another subreport inside the tablix cell.  I have the subreport creating a page break for each record, and when printed out the report is perfect, but in the interactive rendering mode with the SSRS Web Viewer, one of my pages comes out blank except for the header being present.

It is not adding an extra page, because in the print out that particular page is rendered with the correct data, but in the interactive mode it is completly missing. 

I would appriciate any advice someone might have.

Thanks in advance.

Rendering ASP.NET Script References into the Html Header

One thing that I've come to appreciate in control development in ASP.NET that use JavaScript is the ability to have more control over script and script include placement than ASP.NET provides natively. Specifically in ASP.NET you can use either the ClientScriptManager or ScriptManager to embed scripts and script references into pages via code.

Rendering data with HTML tags in the DD Gridview for a selected column


I am having trouble finding out where and how to HTML Encode a cell's data on the Dynamic Data (v4.0) gridview of List.aspx.  As a simple case, suppose I have formatted cell data that is A<br/>B in the DB.    Obviously, I want A stacked on B in the cell.

It seems gridView1.HtmlEncode = true has gone away.

So maybe I'll try to catch it on the RowDataBound event:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                // Html Encode the cells


but this event never fires?

Has anyone figured out how to properly render HTML tags data in the List.aspx's GridView1? 

If I figure this out, then I can add a MetaAttribute called something like [EncodeAsHtml(true)] and be on my way.  Thanks!
