Load .rdl file


There's a way to load an .rdl file in the ReportViewer without the need to specify the data source programatically?

The idea is to read the .rdl file from a folder in my application and load it in the viewer, showing parameters and using the embedded datasource of the report and without the need of SSRS.

Hi Johann,


Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.


As of now, In our ReportViewer extension does not support to load rdl support. We have achieved this requirement using adding Silverlight ReportViewer as  custom control in LightSwitch screen allows you to Load rdl reports in Lightswitch platform. We have prepared sample based on this and it can be downloaded from below location,



Note:  Change the report path before run the provided sample.


Please let us know, if you have any queries.
