Report Viewer 2010 vs Report Viewer 2012
Posted on 2014-09-18
I have a use case to print labels from a web page. I am implementing the default 2010 ASP.NET Report Viewer control that you can add from the sdk toolbar.
It seems the key use case for a report viewer is to view and print the web report. That is the problem I am having with the VS2010 report viewer. I have a report with three columns for labels. Yet the viewer displays it as one column. On top of that the print button does not display on any browser expect older IE browsers.
My questions is does the 2012 Report Viewer released on 7/13/2014 fix this?
 Will the new report viewer show and print the report from the latest releases of Firefox, Chrome, and IE?
 What did they actually fix or deliver with the new 2012 Report Viewer that would make it worth the effort and expense to upgrade visual studio or sql server from a developer perspective?
