RDLC Report Example in with Dataset or Datatable in Visual Studio 2010

Dec 16, 2014

Here I will explain how to create RDLC report in using dataset or datatable with example in c#, in visual studio 2010 or RDLC report example in with dataset or datatable in visual studio 2010.

Before start implementation first design new table in your database and give name UserInfomation

Int(set identity property=true)

After completion of table creation enter some dummy data because we need to use that data to populate reports.

Now Open visual studio and create new website after that right click on your website and select Add New item à in that select Dataset and give proper name and click Add like as shown below

Now Open Dataset and add new datatable for that right click Add à Select Datatable like as shown below

Once we add datatable next step is we need to add columns for that right click on datatable select Add à select Column like as shown below

Here you need to remember one point that is the entire column names should be same as the table (UserInfomation) which we created in database

Suppose if you want to change datatype for any column select respective column right click and select properties

Now Change datatype for that respective column like as shown below

Once we completed adding datatable to dataset now right click on your website and select Add New item à in that select Report Wizard and click Add

After add Report Wizard it will prompt Dataset properties window in that choose previously created dataset as datasource and click Next like as shown below

Once we click Next button it will show Arrange Fields window to select columns to display it in report. Now drag and drop required fields from Available Fields section and place it in Values section like as shown

Once we select our column values you can add custom functions like Sum or Avg or Max or Min etc. by click on arrow icon in each column like as shown below and click Next

Once we click Next button it will ask you to Choose Layout for your application in this just click Next button to select required format in next screen like as shown below.

In Next window Choose a Style and click Finish like as shown below

Once we finished all the steps our report will be like as shown below

Now open your Default.aspx page and place Reportviewer control from toolbox in Reporting tab like as shown below

Once you drag and drop ReportViewer control just Run your application it will throw error like “The Report Viewer Control requires System.Web.UI.ScriptManager”. This error occur because of our ReportViewer control depend on scriptmanager to solve this problem just drag and drop scriptmanager from toolbox in Ajax Extensions tab like as shown below

Now if you check your Default.aspx page code that will be like as shown below

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

<%@ Register assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" tagprefix="rsweb" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<rsweb:ReportViewer ID="ReportViewer1" runat="server">
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
Now open your code behind file and add following namespaces

C# Code

using System;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms;

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms
Now add the following code in code behind to bind data to our Reportviewer

C# Code

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
ReportViewer1.ProcessingMode = ProcessingMode.Local;
ReportViewer1.LocalReport.ReportPath = Server.MapPath("~/Report.rdlc");
UserInformation dsUsersInfo = new UserInformation();
using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Data Source=SureshDasari;Integrated Security=true;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB"))
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("select * from userinformation", con);
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
da.Fill(dsUsersInfo, "DataTable1");
ReportDataSource datasource = new ReportDataSource("UserInformation", dsUsersInfo.Tables[0]);

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms
Partial Class VBCode
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
If Not IsPostBack Then
ReportViewer1.ProcessingMode = ProcessingMode.Local
ReportViewer1.LocalReport.ReportPath = Server.MapPath("~/Report.rdlc")
Dim dsUsersInfo As New UserInformation()
Using con As New SqlConnection("Data Source=SureshDasari;Integrated Security=true;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB")
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("select * from userinformation", con)
Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
da.Fill(dsUsersInfo, "DataTable1")
End Using
Dim datasource As New ReportDataSource("UserInformation", dsUsersInfo.Tables(0))
End If
End Sub
End Class
Now run your application your report will be like as shown below
