Passing a parameter value to a report (reportviewer) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using WinForms and C# (VS 2005) I have written a report (reportviewer) that I can call/execute from a form.

    Now I want to pass a parameter to the form.  Can someone tell me how to do this in C#.

    If I add a parameter to the report (designer) when I run it it runs fine (it asks for parameter value) but if I then try to run it from a form it gives me an error msg.  I assume I have to set the parameter value before calling the form/report but I have no clue how to do it.

    Note: I've only be at this for a week

  • Try a forum that covers the report viewer. They are too many report viewers from different report venders (MSDN magazine advertises a lot of them for years).

    If you use the Visual Studio Report Controls, visit

    This forum does not cover class libraries.
