How to edit RDL programmatically? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all,

    what methods do you suggests for editing existing and/or creating new RDL files programmatically (e.g. using a self-made report wizard)?

    Until now I have found two possibilites, both look quite tedious to me:

    1. Using XML and XPath
    2. Using the classes generated by the xsd tool from the RDL schema (see Generate Classes from the RDL Schema using the xsd Tool in BOL)

    Do you know any other framework which makes working with RLD files more easy?

    thanks in advance,
    Gerald

    PS: for 2. see also my other thread, which didn't raise too much attention (most probably due to a improperly chosen subject)
