Configuring the Report Viewer
The Report Viewer component provides an easy way to view and print reports in a Perspective View. Let's configure the Report Viewer for a report.
- Drag a Report Viewer component into a view.
- Enter the Path of the report you want to view in the 'source' property of the Property Editor. The data from your report will immediately load into the Report Viewer.
Tip: You can right-click on any report in the designer Project Browser to Copy the full Path of the report.
- Parameters added during report creation are provided as properties in the Report Viewer. Add them under the 'params' object. (The example below uses the EndDate and StartDate parameters). The parameter names must match exactly to the parameters in your Report Resource, and will override any default values set in the Report Resource.
