I have a local report (.rdlc) file which has several textboxes that should be populated from report parameters

When I pass the parameters from my code behind and show the report, the default values are being displayed instead of the parameter values:

For example: A have a textbox with the expression: '=Parameters!THEDATE.Value' and a parameter called @THEDATE

The code to run the report is:

Dim rptLocal As New LocalReport
rptLocal.ReportPath = ("Reports\myReport.rdlc")

' Add the report parameters
Dim paramDate As New ReportParameter("THEDATE", txtDate.Text)
rptLocal.SetParameters(paramDate)
       
rptLocal.Refresh()

Open in new window

     

I get no errors, but only default text in the report textbox

Any help would be appreciated

thank you

Does the correct data appear for the parameters you entered or is it the data for the values being shown?

I am not that familiar with the RDLC tool but with Crystal the refresh sometimes deletes the parameters passed.  Try commenting out the refresh line

Thanks

I did try removing the Refresh but that didn't help, I'm pretty sure it's need for the rdlc, I have the same setup on other pages and it works fine

Sorry, I didn't fully answer your question.

Each parameter on the form has 'Default' value set, it is this value that is being displayed when the report renders and NOT the 'variable' value I am setting and applying in the code.

Does txtDate.text has proper value?

Also check if the textbox in the report has any expression. If possible please post the report here.

Yes, the text box has a value, even if I hard coded a value like:
Dim paramDate As New ReportParameter("THEDATE", "My text here") it still doesn't work

The textbox on the report does have an expression: =Parameters!THEDATE.Value'

I think the problem is that you're creating a new LocalReport instead of referring to the one that's bound to the ReportViewer.  The SetParameters line should go something like this:

Me.YourReportViewer.LocalReport.SetParameters(New ReportParameter() {paramDate})

Open in new window

That worked!!

The strange thing here is that I have another page with code identical to this (except it's looking at a different report) and that works perfectly.

But hey, this fixed it so thank you very much
