programming render and save reportviewer

Hello,

I'm looking to find a solution on how to programming render a report viewer document and save the document as a PDF. So far I've established this small line of code however, I'm sure there is more to it that I am missing.

ReportViewer1.LocalReport.Render

This is a C# code. I am not into VB.NET programming, but can try to write the code in VB.NET:

       
 Dim reportFormat as String
        reportFormat = "PDF"

        Dim stream as FileStream
        stream = null
        Dim filePath as String
        filePath = ""

        Dim mimeType as String
        Dim encoding as String
        Dim fileNameExtension as String
        Dim warnings as Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.Warning()
        Dim streamIds as String

        'Render the report into a byte arrary, then save this byte arrary to a file
        Dim reportBytes as Byte()
        reportBytes = ReportViewer1.ServerReport.Render (reportFormat, nothing, mimeType, encoding, fileNameExtension, streamIds, warnings)
        filePath = Server.MapPath("ReportFolder") + "/" + "MyPDFReport" + "." + fileNameExtension
        stream = new System.IO.FileStream(filePath, System.IO.FileMode.Create)
        stream.Write(reportBytes, 0, reportBytes.Length)

Render the report into a byte arrary and then save this array into a PDF file.


Here is a code snippet for this :


String reportFormat = "PDF";

FileStream stream = null;
String filePath = "";

String mimeType;
String encoding;
String fileNameExtension;
Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.Warning[] warnings;
String[] streamIds;

//Render the report into a byte arrary, then save this byte arrary to a file
          byte[] reportBytes = ReportViewer1.ServerReport.Render(reportFormat, null, out mimeType, out encoding, out fileNameExtension, out streamIds, out warnings);
          filePath = Server.MapPath("ReportFolder") + "/" + "MyPDFReport" + "." + fileNameExtension;
          stream = new System.IO.FileStream(filePath, System.IO.FileMode.Create);
          stream.Write(reportBytes, 0, reportBytes.Length);
