Loop through string?

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Hello Experts:

I have a string value that looks like this:  Demo1,Demo2,Demo3
There can be just 1 value with no commas all the way up to nine values all separated by commas.

I'd like to use these values for parameters and pass them using a reportviewer.  How do I convert the values Demo1,Demo2,Demo3 etc into some sort of parameter list and pass it to the reportviewer?

The attached code gives me the error:  Unable to cast object of type 'System.String' to type 'Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportParameter'.

'cid is the string value: Demo1,Demo2,Demo3 etc.
            Dim aryCID() = cid.Split(",")
            Dim params As ReportParameter
            For i As Integer = 0 To aryCID.Length - 1
                params = aryCID(i)
