I have a local report (rdlc file) which I display in a Report Viewer control in a web-form.
May I in some way, in runtime, reference a control in the report, in my case a "rectangle" control, in order to change the Location / Top property of that control.
I need to do some position alignment to fit spesial forms on different printers

I have tried different syntaxes, but always there is an error:
 Dim rect As New Rectangle
 rect = ReportViewer1.FindControl("rectangle")

Sorry, I can not see that this article tells me how to reference a control in a local report (rdlc), lets say a rectangle, in order to modify some properties in that control???
In my case I want (in runtime) to reposition a rectangle by justifying the Location property (Top / Left).
