Running a SSRS Report from a Windows Form Video
Problem / Solution
SSRS reports can be run from a Windows Form using the ReportViewer controls available in Visual Studio. The form can process in remote mode where the processing is handed over to an existing SSRS server or in local mode. Local mode had limited functionality whereas remote processing provides full SSRS functionality. In order to use the ReportViewer control, a reference must be added to your Visual Studio toolbox; once in your toolbox, it can be added to a form where you then 1) set the URL of the report server and 2) set the report folder and file location. Additionally, the report's parameters can be initiated, set, and passed programmatically to the report itself.
