You can find this configuration file in the "ReportServer" folder. Your configuration folder location may be slightly different. You can refer to the below image. Open the "RSReportServer. I have highlighted each extension with a different border color.
If you look at the second set of code "NULL" Extension then you will find the visible attribute is set to false, but for the first code set "XML" Extension this attribute is missing. Based on the visible attribute value rendering extensions will be displayed in the drop down list.
If the visible attribute value is false then the rendering extension will not be displayed in the drop down list or if the visible attribute is missing or has a value of true then the rendering extension will be displayed in the drop down list. As you can see in the below image for the "NULL" rendering extension the visible attribute value is false that is why "NULL" rendering extension was not available in the rendering extension drop down list. We have to define it as a shared data source upon creation.
When creating a new report manually, we must always follow this sequence of steps before we can begin to add data-connected objects: Add the report Create a data source in the report, preferably pointing to a shared data source Create a dataset that points to the data source and contains your query First we add the report to the project. Select Report, name it FirstReportMan. The new report will open up in Report Designer tool, at the Design tab. Second, we define the database for the FirstReportMan report.
On the left, you will see the Report Data window, used to manage the data sources, datasets and parameters of our report. At the top of the Report Data window, choose New Data Source… from the dropdown list, which will open the Data Source Properties window, where we can either create a new embedded data source or point to a shared data source.
Figure 17 Third, we create the Dataset. While the data source is the connection string, the dataset is the query definition. The ReportingDemoDatabaseScript. We can create a shared dataset or a dataset embedded in the report.
Most of the time, the dataset will be embedded in the report. There are some exceptions to this, for example, when we have a parameter list we use in multiple reports. Name the dataset Customers and choose to embed the dataset in the report.
Select the ReportinDemo data source from the dropdown. Figure 18 We can repeat these steps to add multiple datasets to the report, but for now we only need the one. The Design tab is the physical Report Designer where we design the report i. Click to Design tab of our FirstReportMan report. By default, the table shows a header row at the top, and a data or detail row at the bottom.
In the Report Data window, expand the Customers dataset, select FirstName and drag it to the first cell of the detail row of the table, then drag LastName into the second column, and CustomerStatus into the third.
When we drag each column into the data row of the table, SSRS make a guess as to what to call the row in the corresponding header. We can expand and shrink the size of the columns by highlighting and dragging. Figure 19 We can add additional columns to the table by right-clicking on one of the columns and selecting one of the two Insert Column options.
Alternatively, we can hover over the cell to see a popup list of fields from the dataset, and select DateOfBirth Figure 20 At this stage, we can click on the Preview tab to view the report.
We have lots of options such as adding background colors, changing the font or text color, adding italics or bolding, and more.
In this example, we will change the background color of the header row. To format all the cells in the header in the same way, click one cell to make the table handles appear.
Then select the entire row by selecting the handle: Figure 21 There are two ways to modify the properties. The first is to open the Properties window F4 , where we can set background color, font, and so on. The other method is to use the formatting toolbar. Whichever way you choose, set the background color for the headers to your preferred color and choose the bold font style.
Figure 22 Having formatted the header row, we can once again click on the Preview tab to view the report. Report headers and footers appear on every page of the report.
A new band appears on the report above the body. Select the textbox and modify the font and text style, as desired. Again, we can check our handiwork in Preview mode. Figure 23 Starting with the release, as well as applying formatting to a textbox, we can also apply multiple formats to the text within a textbox. Clicking the edge of the textbox selects the textbox. Clicking inside the textbox selects the text. Now there are two formats within one textbox. Field Formatting We can apply formatting to each detail field in the report table.
Right-click on the cell that contains the date of birth, choose Text Box Properties.
Next, navigate Number Date and then set the preferred format I used yyyy-mm-dd. For example, if the ruler is not visible, turn it on from Report View Ruler. Some of the report properties are also available in the Properties F4 window as well, but you may find that working in the Report Properties dialog is more convenient.
Setting up the report print settings is not intuitive, compared to other products. In the report Design tab you see your report with a ruler across the top. Since I am in the US, my ruler is set up in inches by default. A standard sheet of paper is 8. The default setting in SSRS is to have a 1-inch or 2 cm margin all the way around the content area. So, at 8. If the report page is wider than 6. If there is just blank space in the extra area, you will get alternating blank sheets of paper when printed.
On the Page Setup tab of the Report Properties dialog, we can change the report to Landscape if we wish, switch to centimeters, modify the paper size or the margins. To avoid spill-over when printing, make sure that the width of the report plus the right margin plus the left margin is less than the width of the paper size.
Figure 25 Adding parameters to a report There are two ways to add parameters to our reports.
