ReportViewer -- Parameter Labels are not Displaying on Report in Local Mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to display a selected parameter on the header of a report.  In Visual Studio, you would do this by supplying something like the following: Parameters!DisplayParameter.Label.  This works perfectly fine in Visual Studio; however, nothing is displayed in Report Viewer under Local Mode. 

    Parameter values are displayed correctly using Parameters!DisplayParameter.Value; however, this is not always feasible, since the Value is usually some sort of unique ID that is required by the SQL Query.  Research on this topic has shown that this happens because SetParameters() only uses Values and disregards Labels.

    1) Is there any way around this that entails the ability to use ".Label"?

    2) Will displaying ".Label" be supported in future releases?  If so, when can we expect it?

    3) Does this limitation also exist in Remote Viewer (Server Mode)?
