VS 2008 not possible to move toolbars RRS feed

  • Question

  • This may be a known beta limitation. When designing a report in VS2008 the toolbars (report design is what I noticed first) cannot be moved around. The move icon hovers over them, but they don't seem to be moveable. I looked for a 'lock the toolbars' setting which would be preventing this but cannot find one.

  • Hi, I can confirm with the recently announced RC0 release, this issue does not occur.  I am able to move toolbars around, inlcuding the new 'Report' Toolbar as well the 'Report Borders' and 'Report Formatting'.


    Regarding the RC0, The announcement is covered here here..


    Bits will be available from the download site soon.

  • Thanks Craig. Keep up the good work, I've been toying with SSRS since June 2003 when I first became aware of it. Bit by bit MSFT is integrating the elements I saw as lacking. I had used Crystal Enterprise in 2001 and it was abominably unstable and hard to set up. Of course it will have improved, but as far as I know today still lacks the interactive groups and sorting of SSRS.

    Let me plug a few feature requests...
    1. Kudos for 2008 performance improvements over SSRS 2005, my report rendering times are way down and I do it all by stored procedure. Still though, with a client recently trying to sell them on SSRS I watched (and felt powerless) as he brought up server-generated crystal reports that were totally instantaneous.

    2. It's problematic that the server "goes to sleep" when nobody has hit it for awhile. I've read about this on the forum and there may be a solution (other than setting up some process to keep hitting it to prevent "sleeping"). This is an issue for me with .aspx pages in server mode served by IIS ReportViewer, reports running in server mode.

    I appreciate that the team is listening.

  • Thank you, that is good feedback for us to grow on and we appreciate you growing with us.


    Apologies, I pasted a link to another CTP in another June Smile

    Robert has a good sum of RC0 information.
