Is there help available for learning how to generate a RDL file programmatically? RRS feed

  • Question


    I have done the one tutorial on generating an RDL file that Microsoft provides - basically turning a dataset into a table, I've pieced together how to do some simple stuff... text boxes, rectangles, font sizies, background colors - however there is so much more that I need to know. 


    I have downloaded the RDL specification.  It looks like it will be a good reference once I get a little more familiar with what all the elements and properties do.


    For instance, how do I set up groups in a table?  I would love to see just a code snippet with an explanation of what's going on. 


    Please don't answer that specific question... my real question is: Is this sort of documentation available anywhere?


    You might wonder why I want to go to all this trouble.  Sometimes I wonder that myself, but I'm driven by this irrational desire to figure out how to do this thing - it looks like it might not be all that difficult.  If all else fails - is there any way to get the report generator working in Visual C# Express?
