I am working on a report in sql server 2008 using the report designer 2.0.  What I want to do is have an option of either including a chart or not.  Currently when you choose this report it asks for a date range and then will produce the results with the charts included.  I would like to have a third option before displaying any results as to show the charts or not.  I hope this is possible.  Please ask questions if needed for clarification.

basically you can create a parameter and use that to set visibility to true or false

something like iif(parameters!showGraph.value="yes",false,true)

you put that in the graph property where it says visibility

if you wanna do a group of items use a rectangle to group them
