Develop custom Report Viewer Web Part by inheriting Out of Box Report Viewer Web Part RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using reporting services in SharePoint integrated mode; and showing report on SharePoint 2007 site using Out of Box Report Viewer web part.

    I have some requirements which are not fulfilled by Out of Box report viewer web part, so I need to develop my own custom web part, which will provide all features of Out of Box Report Viewer web part and I can add my own custom features which will satisfy my requirements.

    Features I am expecting in custom web part:

    1)    All existing features of Out of Box Report Viewer web part.

    2)    Personalize default parameter loading in parameter pane (user specific default parameter).  

    3)    Customize the parameter selection pane, which report viewer web part provides.

    4)    Popup message Box on invalid parameter selection.

    5)    Need to use relative path of report URL in web part configuration, take advantage of AJAX, etc…

    I would appreciate your thoughts about developing custom report viewer web part or similar solution.  

    Thanks in Advance,

  • Well I suppose you still want the features that are not available in the standard one, right? :) So you will still need to customize the Web part.

    I haven't inherited anything from the Report Viewer Web part, but even Chengyi provided links to report viewer control, which I suppose is the better approach in this case, because I reckon there is more than just a Web part in standard that you have to bear in mind.

    Anyway it would be interesting to know how do you go with your idea.

    Best wishes,
