VS2010 Cannot Drag From Data Sources RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have VS2010 Pro, and am designing a winform app in VB that uses reportviewer. I have version 10 of reportviewer.winforms and reportviewer.common showing in my references. I can add the control viewer. I can display a report properly. But I cannot drag fields from the 'data sources' window/toolbox. Am I missing components? If so, how do I install? I have reinstalled the 2010 reportveiwer.exe several times trying to get this functionality.

     

    Thanks.

  • You have to use the 'Report Data' pane to drag and drop data source fields to a report. You can access it from the menu by going to the View -> Report Data when a report is opened in the designer.
