Add new local reports, without changing application ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When using local reports, is it possible to add new reports to an existing application, without any change to the application ? e.g. perhaps by placing new report files into a directory, which are then loaded dynamically at run-time ?

    Thanks.
    Andy.

  • Your application can load RDLC files from anywhere and supply it to the ReportViewer control as a stream.

    Note that RDLC files contain the schema of data expected by the report, but do not specify where/how to get the data. If your application loads arbitrary RDLC files from the file system then your application has to know how to supply data expected by the RDLC file.
