I am building a report with parameters and drill downs. Based on parameters, report may return tons of data or few rows of data. Therefore based on parameters I want to display report with / without drill downs.

First I thought of putting an expression in Hide property, which works. But toggle item property does not support expressions... so the rows are made visible but they still have toggles which forces user to click through to see just 1 row.

I am out of ideas, and would appreciate any help. Thanks !

I'm not exactly sure what you mean with: "so the rows are made visible but they still have toggles which forces user to click through to see just 1 row"

As you've noticed, you can't change the ToggleItem value dynamically,  but I don't think that's necessary.  If you use an expression on the Hidden property and make rows "not hidden" whenever you require them to be visible, that should work.

However, what can be confusing is the behavior of the +/- toggle icon.  You will need to make it behave as expected too, by adding an expression on the InitialToggleState property.
Perhaps that's what you were having trouble with?

Yes you are right. I had to change Initial toggle property of textbox to get the desired effect. Thanks a lot.
