Areas of ReportViewer Control are transparent RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    This is my first posting in the VS forums so hope I have got the right place :-)

    I'm using a reportviewer control in my Windows Forms application (VS 2005). The control is placed on a tab. Basically the problem is that when I run the report, the parameters area, along with the Page Number, Zoom and Find boxes, are all transparent. I have checked everywhere I can think of that there is nothing set as transparent but the problem is still there.

    Has anyone come across this before, or know what might be the issue?

  • Hi all,

    have found the issue so am posting the solution in case anyone else needs it. The Transparency Key of the main form was set to Control - which happens to be the same colour as the background for the reportviewer control's parameter area. Have set the Transparency Key to none, and that has fixed the issue.
