Unable to use ReportViewer in asp.net web forms application

I have installed the ReportViewer version 11 download and am struggling to get it to work at all in Visual Studio 2013.  

I created an empty web ASP.Net Web application and add a webform.  To this aspx I drag from the toolbox a ScriptManager control as well as a ReportViewer control.  Doing this adds the following line at the top of the file:

<%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=11.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91" Namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" TagPrefix="rsweb" %>

Open in new window


I check references and see that Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms exists and is of version 11.


 Finally here is my updated Web.config:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!--

  <system.web>

    <httpHandlers>
      <add verb="*" path="Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd" type = "Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=11.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91" />
    </httpHandlers>



    <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.5">
      <assemblies>
        <add assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=11.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845DCD8080CC91"/>
        <add assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.Common, Version=11.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845DCD8080CC91"/>
        <add assembly="Microsoft.Build.Framework, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A"/>
      </assemblies>
    </compilation>
    <httpRuntime targetFramework="4.5"/>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

Open in new window


Running the project gives the following error:

0x800a1391 - JavaScript runtime error: 'Microsoft' is undefined

Did you add script manager control before adding ReportViewer control?
Typical steps are:
1. Add a page.
2. Open the Toolbox window. From the AJAX Extensions group, drag a ScriptManager control onto the design surface.

3. From the Toolbox window, in the Reporting group, drag a ReportViewer control onto the page below the ScriptManager control.

Yes, did that exactly.

I've uploaded the test solution here in case it helps:

I am so sorry for the late reply!

I get the error from here from the line beginning "$create(Microsoft.Reporting.WebFormsClient":

<script type="text/javascript">
//<![CDATA[
Sys.Application.add_init(function() {
    
if (typeof Microsoft == 'undefined' ||
    typeof Microsoft.Reporting == 'undefined' ||
    typeof Microsoft.Reporting.WebFormsClient == 'undefined' ||
    typeof Microsoft.Reporting.WebFormsClient.ReportViewer == 'undefined')
    Sys.UI.DomElement.setVisible($get('ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ReportViewer1_HttpHandlerMissingErrorMessage'), true);
    $create(Microsoft.Reporting.WebFormsClient.ReportViewer, {"_internalViewerId":"ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ReportViewer1_ctl03","id":"ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ReportViewer1"}, null, null);
});

Open in new window


The error I receive is:

Please give me time to retrace my own solution.

I had EXACTLY  the same problem two or three months ago but I can't remember how I resolved it.

I will be once I remember.

Sorry, I am under the gun too.

My app goes LIVE tomorrow, yea.

I will then dedicate more time to helping you out.

In the meantime, review this link and see how helpful it might be for you.

It is my understanding that because IIS7 handler mappings does not contain reserved word when placed in the handler section. As a result these suggested workarounds might do it.

I will have a little more time tomorrow to look into my folders.

Thanks very much for the link.

Unfortunately those tips have not done the trick for me. I 'm really stuck on this as I can't get this control to work on either my Windows 8 laptop running Visual Studio 2013 nor my w7 machine running Visual Studio 2012.

Could I trouble someone to download the project I uploaded and see if it works on another environment?  Or alternatively build the smallest asp.net solution with the report viewer in a page and upload it so I can see if it works on my system?

Many thanks,

Once I added the following worked great.  Thank you for your help!


  <system.webServer>
    <validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration="false" />
    <handlers>
      <add name="ReportViewerWebControlHandler" preCondition="integratedMode" verb="*" path="Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd" type="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=11.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91" />
    </handlers>
  </system.webServer>
