Transparency on map layers in SSRS not workking


  • I am trying to build a map made up of several different layers that be turned on and off.

    Whenever I add a layer to the map it covers up anything underneath it...when I "right click"

    the map tile and select "Layer Data" then "visibility" then "transparency" and set it to 40...nothing happens ?!?!

    Can someone let me know if I'm doing something wrong?

  • Hi T junky,

    In Reporting Services, we can specify the transparency for each map layer independently. Default values for transparency differ depending on how you add a layer. A transparency of 0% means the layer is opaque and no other layer data will show through this one. To allow other data to show through an existing layer, adjust the value to a higher percentage. In this issue, the issue may occur if the transparency value for any layer that covers the existing layer is 0. So, please check the outer map layers and ensure the transparency values are not set to 0.

    Hope this helps.
