Issue with toolbar when loading the RDL (upgraded to ssrs 2008 R2) via report viewer in MOSS 2007 server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our front end server is Office SharePoint Server 2007 and the RS is SSRS 2008 R2 (native mode).

    The toolbar is different when loading the same RDL (upgraded to SSRS 2008 R2) through report viewer and report manager. In report manager, the toolbar is color blue while when displayed through report viewer the color of the toolbar is light brown/yellow. Color blue indicates it is using the latest version of SSRS while the other color for previos version. Aside from that, the font of several texts in a table has increased to one point when viewed via report viewer compare to when viewed via report manager.  Is there an existing fix for this?

  • Hi roel2000,

    The color of toolbar in Report Manager is light brown when you are integrating SSRS 2008 with MOSS 2007. While the default color of Report Viewer toolbar is blue. I think you may make a reverse order in your question.

    You can custom related css files if you want to change the color of the toolbars.

  • Hi roel2000,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I haven't found a solution to integrating the toolbar style with SSRS 2008 and MOSS 2007. But you can get css class that toolbar of Report Viewer using and copy it to a custom style that you can attached to the Report Manager.

    Please try to use Developer Tools (Press F12 in IE8) to get the css name of toolbar of Report viewer and find out the style in core.css file. Then use this style to create a custom style sheet for Report Manager follow this reference.

  • Hi roel2000,

    The report viewer web part is using the same style and colors as the page that contails it and the default color is blue.

    If only one page contains a Report View Web Part need to be customed, you can add a Content Editor Web Part and add your custom CSS there.

    If you want to modify the style of Report View Web Part, I'm afraid that a custom Web Part need to be created with the custom style.

    Here is the SharePoint default toolbar style maybe can help. http://www.heathersolomon.com/content/sp07cssreference.htm#Toolbar

    And here are some references about how to custom Report View web part and add css to custom web part. Or you can try to custom your site theme.

  • Thanks Emir. You're right! That is indeed the case. Could you please tell the complete steps to change the color of the toolbar?

    One more thing. Is it possible to use/display the toolbar (of the SSRS 2008 R2 report manager) when integrating the ssrs 2008 r2 with MOSS 2007?

  • Hi Emir, thanks for the quick reply. What I need to achieve is when I load the report (RDL) through ReportViewer, I should be able to see a toolbar that is similar when loaded from the SSRS 2008 R2 Report Manager (e.g. a blue color, etc.).
