    Hi Somay,

    I am not sure what you mean by the report viewer tool. If you mean the ReportViewer control, I guess you may set the back color of the ReportViewer control to black. You can click on the “Print Layout” button to check if you can see the report. I have the following code, and it works well on my machine.

    Code Block

            DataTable dt = new DataTable();// used as the data source of the report


            private void CusForm_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)




                for (int i = 1; i < 200; i++)


                    dt.Rows.Add(i.ToString("00"), "Name" + i.ToString("00"));




                this.dataGridView1.DataSource = dt;



            private void btnViewReport_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


                reportViewer1.LocalReport.ReportEmbeddedResource = "ReportTest.CusReport.rdlc";


                //set the data source, the first patameter is the name of the datasource which you bind your report table to

                reportViewer1.LocalReport.DataSources.Add(new Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportDataSource("CusDataSet_Person", dt));

                // set the parameter of the report

                Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportParameter rp = new Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportParameter("title", this.textBox1.Text);

                reportViewer1.LocalReport.SetParameters(new Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportParameter[] { rp });




    Let me know if this helps. If not, Could you please provide some more details?

    Hope this helps.
    Best regards.
