Asked On November 29, 2016 10:22 PM UTC

I've look through the Report Designer documentation but I have not found any documentation on how to create a hyperlink to another report, passing a parameter for example an ID.  I see that when creating an expression that there is a Built-in Field named "ReportServerUrl" which is actually the URL for the API not the Report Server hosting the report, for example:  http://<server name>:80//reportserverapi.

What is the recommended way to create a properly formed URL and pass a parameter?

Thanks,

I found the "Action" section for a TextBox so I now see that I can create a hyperlink.  It would be very helpful if the documentation for your Report Designer was more complete.  As it stands now I have to look at the documentation for SSRS then try to find same behavior in the Report Designer which is less than ideal.  Please do your customers a favor and spend more time to make your documentation more useful.  I shouldn't have to cross reference documentation for another competing product to figure out how to use yours.

Thanks!

Hi Michael, 
 
Sorry for the inconvenience. 
 
We are using the same standards as like as the Microsoft Reporting Services and we have documented control specific features in our documentation. However, we have considered your feedback in our documentation and we will include more information about our Report Designer in our UG documentation. 
 
Regards, 
Vinoth S.

Upon further testing, I found that creating an action to invoke another report does not work.  In the report designer, nothing happens when I click the text box on which I have created the action and no error is thrown. On the report server, the proper HTML is not emitted so nothing happens when I click on the link.

Also I'm somewhat confused by the limited access to the fields of my dataset.  It appears that I only have access to the First(...) expression.  Will this give me access to the the correct row when the report is generated or is there some other method for access row specific data?

Thanks,

--Michael

The data set field collection can be access based on the scope where we are using the expression. In some locations of a report, you must specify a scope. For example, for a text box on the design surface, you must specify the name of the dataset to use: =First(Fields!Sales.Value,"Dataset1"). In other locations, there is an implicit default scope. For example, if you do not specify an aggregate for a text box in a tablix group scope, the default aggregate First is used. 
 
Please refer the online documentation to know more about data scope in expressions. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-in/library/dd255256.aspx
