Parameter dropdown - Filter while typing (autocomplete) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to have a "filter while typing" (autocomplete) behaviour for parameter dropdowns in the report viewer control? For examp,e if have a dropdown with the values

    "Aaaaa"
    "Abbbb"
    "Eaaaa"
    "Ebbbb"
    "Ecccc"
    "Faaaa"

    When I click into the dropdown and press key "E" and then key "C" it should go to the value "Ecccc". Is there a way to get that behaviour?

    Thanks for any hint relating to that.

  • This functionality is not available in the built-in parameter prompt area.  But the metadata for the parameters, including the valid value list, is available from ReportViewer.ServerReport.GetParameters().  So it is possible to add this functionality if you wish to implement a custom prompt area.
