Reporting Services and Report. Viewer Controls in Visual Studio 2. Local processing mode: Create client report definition (. Visual Studio. Adding a Report template to a project creates a report definition file, adds the file to your project, and opens an integrated report designer in the Visual Studio workspace. Alternatively, adding the Report Wizard template to your project helps guide you through the steps of report creation. The Visual Studio Data Source wizards can be used to provide data in your application for subsequent use in the report.
The Visual Studio Report Designer does not include a Preview tab. To preview your report, run the application and preview the report embedded in it. The Visual Studio Report Designer integrates with the Report Data window. When a user drags a field from the Report Data window to the report, the Report Designer copies metadata about the dataset into the report definition file. This metadata is used by the Report. Viewer control to automatically generate data- binding code.
Remote Processing Mode: Same as SQL Server. The Business Intelligence Development Studio adds project templates that are specific to SQL Server components. To create reports, choose from the Report Server Project or Report Server Project Wizard templates. A Data tab, Layout tab, and Preview tab allow you to define data, create a report layout, and preview the report in the same workspace.
Report. Viewer Controls (Visual Studio)Microsoft Visual Studio 2. Report. Viewer controls so that you can add full- featured reports to custom applications.
The ReportViewer control is used to view RDL. Can render RDL reports published on SQL. Displayed reports can be exported into popular file formats of PDF. This is a legacy report viewer and for new projects our recommendation is to use the latest web forms report viewer. The ASP.NET ReportViewer is designed to render.
ReportViewer controls are provided so that you can process and.
Reports may contain tabular, aggregated, and multidimensional data. Report. Viewer controls are provided so that you can process and display the report in your application.
For a demonstration of how to create a drillthrough report using the reportviewer control, see Create a Drillthrough (RDLC) Report with Parameters using Report. Viewer (SSRS Tutorial).
There are two versions of the control. The Report. Viewer Web server control is an ASP. NET AJAX control used to host reports in ASP. NET AJAX projects. The Report. Viewer Windows Forms control is used to host reports in Windows application projects.
Both controls can be configured to run in local processing mode or remote processing mode. How you configure the processing mode affects everything about the report from design to deployment. Local processing mode refers to report processing that is performed by the Report. Viewer control in the client application. All report processing is performed in the local process using data that your application provides. To create the reports used in local processing mode, you use the Report project template in Visual Studio. For more information, see Configuring Report.
Viewer for Local Processing. Remote processing mode refers to report processing that is performed by a SQL Server 2. Reporting Services report server. In remote processing mode, the Report. Viewer control is used as a viewer to render a report that is processed on a Reporting Services report server. All processing from data retrieval to report processing is performed on the report server.
To use remote processing mode, you must have a licensed copy of SQL Server 2. For more information, see Configuring Report. Viewer for Remote Processing.
To use a Report. Viewer control in your application, you must know how to add the control to your project form or Web page, configure the control to use a local report definition or server report, update data source references, and test and deploy the reports and control in your application. Walkthroughs are provided to help you learn these core skills.
