how to embed *.rdl files in winforms? RRS feed

Answers

  • You don't embed rdl files - you deploy them to the report server.  If you want them installed on the local machine, you recreate rdlc files.  Here's a link to convert between the two.

    A word of caution though before you start deploying rdlc files.  If you are on a corporate domain, it makes far more sense to deploy the report to the SSRS box and call it.  IMO, the only times it makes sense to use rdlc files is either the local computers are in a workgroup configuration, or you are deploying over the Intenet.

     

    Good Luck.

  • I don't know what a *.rdl file is but you can embed any file in any assembly.
