Graphs stop displaying in Report Viewer Control after upgrade to SSRS 2008 R2


  • We are seeing an issue where certain graphs and guages are not being displayed within a report rendered in the report viewer control after we upgraded from SSRS 2008 to SSRS 2008R2.  You can see the graphs and guages render and then disappear from the screen when two other graphs are rendered.  When I export the report to Excel or PDF then all of the graphs and guages are rendered properly.

    There are a total of 3 graphs and 2 guages on the report - when it completes the rendering process, you can only see two of the graphs displayed in the report viewer control - as I said before, you can see all 3 graphs and 2 guages when exporting to Excel or PDF.  Using Internet Explorer v8.  This problem manifest itself right after the upgrade.

    Has anyone seen a similar issue?

  • Sean,

    That fixed my issue - thanks for the help.  I ended up setting the property ImageConsolidation=false in the rsreportserver.config file.

    Thanks, John

  • How can this be done via code versus changing the reporting server?

  • I am having a similar problem with my graphs disappearing after upgrading to Reporting Services 2008 R2.  The graphs are visible if the report is run from the Report Mananger but if the report is run from an ASP web app using ReportViewer they disappear.  If the report is exported the graphs are there.

    My Report Viewer code from the web page:


    <rsweb:ReportViewer ID="rvReports" ZoomMode="Percent" ZoomPercent="100" Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="8pt" ProcessingMode="Remote" Width="100%" Height="560px" runat="server" HyperlinkTarget="_Top" DocumentMapWidth="100%" SizeToReportContent="True"></rsweb:ReportViewer>

    and web config http handler:



    add path="Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd" verb="*" type="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"

    HELP!!!  Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks, Joyce

  • I am having the exact same problem as JSCAR; when I upgraded to RS 2008 RS, I don't see any graphs when the report is run from my application, but if I export it or run it from the Rs URL, it all renders just fine.

    Help please!

  • Hi John,

    I have a similar problem!

    Where did you add the ImageConsolidation=false in the rsreportserver.config file?

    My guess was

    <Extension Name="IMAGE" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.Rendering.ImageRenderer.ImageRenderer,Microsoft.ReportingServices.ImageRendering" ImageConsolidation=false/>


    But that didn't help!
