Error while browsing RSViewer.aspx in SSRS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am getting the below error while browsing the RsViewer.aspx (Or rdl file). I have moved the rdl file from one environment (where I could browse the rdl file) to another environment. In the new environment, I am getting the  below error while browing the rdl file. Both environments are having the same configuration (SQL server 2008 R2 SP3).

    "Type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.PlaceHolder' does not have a public property named 'style'  "

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hi krish456,

    According to your description, after you move SSRS report from one server to another, you got the error message when you preview the repot: Type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.PlaceHolder' does not have a public property named 'style'.

    As per my understanding, you are using object of System.Web.UI.WebControls.PlaceHolder while a different type was expected, this different type has style properties, which were needed for the report to run properly. It seems that you should be using System.Web.UI.WebControls.Style.

    PlaceHolder Class
    Style Class

    If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.
