User prompt parameters in RDLC reports RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am currently working with rdlc reports in VS2010, but i am wondering if i could somehow prompt user for parameters WITHIN the report viewer? Currently, i am offering the user some text boxes as windows forms controls besides the ReportViewer.
    I've noticed that it can be done in Reporting Services in SQL Server, like on the image below.

    Thanks in advance!

  • I've worked it out by my own research. 

    Apparently,  It cannot be done using rdlc reports because it is considered as not necessary in local mode (i've found that answer here). What i had to do is add a link to reporting services report, which means that i needed to have reporting services installed on the server and a report deployed. Using report builder 2, i've created a report with prompt parameters and deployed it to reporting services. After that, i've created a ReportView control and added a link to the deployed report. I hope that someone with similar problem find this Q and A helpful.
