Back to Parent Button in SSRS not showing RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi lilutchay,

    What kind of app, winform or webform, are you using? How are you embedding it?

    The back button is controlled by Showbackbutton property. When it is true, the back button will show. For this detail, please check Why no Back button?

    Anyway, a simple workaround that work for any cases is create a "Go Back" texbox in child report and set action for it to link to the parent report.

    Another work around is to add JavaScript. You could check it here .

    Regards,

    Lukas

  • Hi lilutchay,

    I'm facing the same issue here:

    ReportViewer.aspx Missing "Go to the parent report" Button

    Wondering if you ever found a solution to this?

    Thanks,

  • Hi lilutchay,

    Thank you for replying. Are you saying that something in that answer allowed you to make the "Go back to the parent report" button appear in the SSRS report viewer page (i.e. ReportViewer.aspx)? Or did you use one of the workarounds instead?

    Thanks,

    Ken

  • The answer in highlighted link did.  

    You can find it here. (i.e. using javascript: history.go(-1))

  • Hi lilutchay,

    Thank you for clarifying.

    The javascript history workaround doesn't preserve the parent's parameters or what page you were on in the parent report, so it doesn't work for my use case. 

    I'm really hoping that someone has a solution for getting that "Go back to the parent report" button to appear in the ReportViewer.aspx page like its supposed to.

    Thanks,

    Ken

  • I totally agree with Ken C Bowman.  This is quite frustrating, the Javascript will not preserve the parent's parameters whereas the "Go back to the parent report" functionality does preserve parameters.

    I have searched many sites and have not found anyone that has a Solution / Answer to this problem, it is misleading that one of the posts in this thread has been marked as an Answer.

    The only way I have ever gotten this to work is to edit the toggle the ShowBackButton="True" > ShowBackButton="False" > ShowBackButton="True" and sometimes it will show the "Go back to the parent report" and it works for drillthrough reporting for as long as I keep that report open once I can get it to work, but as soon as close that report, it will loose the "Go back to the parent report" button.

    Funny thing is that all of the other ReportViewer.aspx properties work flawlessly, I can set ShowToolBar="False" and it works immediately and stays ... same for all the other properties except for ShowBackButton="True" ... WTF!
