Reporting Services in Visual Studio 2010: Can you customize the reporting tool bar? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Developing a web application using ASP.NET and Reporting Services in local mode.  Using Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.0.  Is it possible to provide a custom HTML/CSS content for the functions provided on the reporting services tool bar, e.g. print, export, zoom, etc.?  How do you get at this functionality?

  • There are also some properties on the viewer that will allow you to customize the look, such as the ToolBarItemHoverBackColor property.  It won't let you hook up to stylesheets, but it may provide enough of a hook to prevent the need to provide a custom toolbar implementation.

    Unfortunately, we haven't been able to add support for full customization of the toolbar.  It is a frequest request that we get and something we tried to fit into VS 2010, but we just ran out of time.  It's definitely still on our list for the future.

  • Hi,

     

    Currently, we can only use the default style for the toolbar in ReportViewer control. Since it’s a good suggestion to allow users customize the toolbar style, I would recommend you submit a wish at https://connect.microsoft.com/visualstudio. If the service requests frequently, we may include it in the next release.

     

    Your feedback is valuable for us to improve our products and increase the level of service provided.

     

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

     

    Thanks,

    Tony Chain

  • See the announcement at the top of the forum for the ASP.NET ReportViewer samples environment. It contains a sample that implements a custom tool bar using ReportViewer's new JavaScript APIs.
