SSRS Report Viewer Control Render as PDF RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've got a couple of SSRS reports that make the most sense to be rendered directly to PDF when they render as opposed to allowing the user to select the type.  However, each report has parameters that I still want to utilize the Report Viewer Control to allow the user to select the parameters and when they click the View Report button instead of the HTML output that displays by default I would want a PDF file to open, inline or as an attachment, I don't really care.

    I know I can export to PDF through code but this requires me to build the parameter selection in another application, I don't want to do this as it defeats the idea of a single "report viewer page" that can process multiple reports.

    Any ideas?
