Hi Ham, 
 
Thanks for your interest in our Syncfusion Components. 
 
We can able to run the RDL file in our Report viewer control when adding the Report Service URL, Report Path and processing mode as shown in below code example. 
 
Index.cshtml: 
<body style="overflow: hidden; position: static; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; width: 100%; height: 100%"> 
    <div style="width:100%; height:100%; position:absolute;"> 
        @(Html.EJ().ReportViewer("reportsample") 
            .ProcessingMode(Syncfusion.JavaScript.ReportViewerEnums.ProcessingMode.Remote) 
            .ReportServiceUrl(VirtualPathUtility.ToAbsolute("~/api/RDLReport")) 
            .ReportPath("~/App_Data/134684.rdl")) 
    </div> 
    @(Html.EJ().ScriptManager()) 
</body> 
 
Please find the below help documentation for how to load the local rdl report in MVC Report Viewer control. 
 
We have prepared the simple MVC report viewer sample for your reference and it can be downloaded from below location. 
 
Regards, 
Vinoth S.

Hi Ham, 

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. 

Please find the below response for your queries.

my problem is for report designer  
Please find the below online sample link for how to use the ReportDesigner in MVC application. 

We have prepared the simple sample in MVC5 application and it can be downloaded from below location. 

Note: In above sample we have used the External server for open/edit/save the existing report using External server. 

We are getting the existing reports, datasources and datasets available in our shared application as shown in below code example. If you want to use any other location then we can modify the path accordingly.  
  
ExternalServer.cs:  
  
public override List<CatalogItem> GetItems(string folderName, ItemTypeEnum type)  
        {  
            List<CatalogItem> _items = new List<CatalogItem>();  
            string targetFolder = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/") +@"App_Data\ReportServer\";  
  
            if (type == ItemTypeEnum.Folder || type == ItemTypeEnum.Report)  
            {  
                targetFolder = targetFolder + @"Report\";  
                if (!(string.IsNullOrEmpty(folderName) || folderName.Trim() == "/"))  
                {  
                    targetFolder = targetFolder + folderName;  
                }  
            }  
  
            if (type == ItemTypeEnum.DataSet)  
            {  
                foreach (var file in Directory.GetFiles(targetFolder + "DataSet"))  
                {  
                    CatalogItem catalogItem = new CatalogItem();  
                    catalogItem.Name = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(file);  
                    catalogItem.Type = ItemTypeEnum.DataSet;  
                    catalogItem.Id = Regex.Replace(catalogItem.Name, @"[^0-9a-zA-Z]+", "_");  
                    _items.Add(catalogItem);  
                }  
            }  
            else if (type == ItemTypeEnum.DataSource)  
            {  
                foreach (var file in Directory.GetFiles(targetFolder + "DataSource"))  
                {  
                    CatalogItem catalogItem = new CatalogItem();  
                    catalogItem.Name = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(file);  
                    catalogItem.Type = ItemTypeEnum.DataSource;  
                    catalogItem.Id = Regex.Replace(catalogItem.Name, @"[^0-9a-zA-Z]+", "_");  
                    _items.Add(catalogItem);  
                }  
            }  
            else if (type == ItemTypeEnum.Folder)  
            {  
                foreach (var file in Directory.GetDirectories(targetFolder))  
                {  
                    CatalogItem catalogItem = new CatalogItem();  
                    catalogItem.Name = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(file);  
                    catalogItem.Type = ItemTypeEnum.Folder;  
                    catalogItem.Id = Regex.Replace(catalogItem.Name, @"[^0-9a-zA-Z]+", "_");  
                    _items.Add(catalogItem);  
                }  
            }  
            else if (type == ItemTypeEnum.Report)  
            {  
                foreach (var file in Directory.GetFiles(targetFolder, "*.rdl"))  
                {  
                    CatalogItem catalogItem = new CatalogItem();  
                    catalogItem.Name = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(file);  
                    catalogItem.Type = ItemTypeEnum.Report;  
                    catalogItem.Id = Regex.Replace(catalogItem.Name, @"[^0-9a-zA-Z]+", "_");  
                    _items.Add(catalogItem);

i have data table and i want to load page (report designer page) the whole my data table load on  data source like when connection to Sql; 

We don’t have support to load the data table values in Web report designer. But we can able to create the report with data table when using the data extension. We have prepared the simple sample to create the report with web api datasource using data extension in web report designer and it can be downloaded from below location. So could you please use to get the data from data table by the below way.  

Please find the below standalone WebAPI sample. 

Please find the document to assist you in creating custom data extension from below location,  

Please find the below steps to add the WebAPI DataExtension sample in our WebReportDesigner sample. 

Step1: Add the WebAPI Extension project reference to our Web ReportDesigner sample as shown in below snap: 
 

Step2: Add the Configuration section in WebConfig file as shown in below code example. 
 
Web.config 
  <configSections> 
    <section name="ReportingExtensions" type="Syncfusion.Reporting.Extensions,  Syncfusion.EJ.ReportViewer" allowLocation="true" allowDefinition="Everywhere"/> 
      </configSections> 
  <ReportingExtensions> 
    <DataExtension> 
      <Extension Name="WebAPI" Assembly="Syncfusion.Reporting.DataExtensions.WebAPI" Type="Syncfusion.Reporting.DataExtensions.WebAPI.WebAPIExtension"> 
        <Properties> 
          <Add Key="QueryDesignerEnabled" Value="true"/> 
          <Add Key="QueryFilterEnabled" Value="false"/> 
          <Add Key="QueryExpressionEnabled" Value="false"/> 
         <Add Key="QueryJoinerEnabled" Value="false"/> 
          <Add Key="QueryColumnEdit" Value="false"/> 
        </Properties> 
      </Extension> 
    </DataExtension> 
  </ReportingExtensions> 

Step3: Add ReportDataExtensions in our index.cshtml file as shown in below code example. 

Index.cshtml: 
    <div style="width:100%; height:100%; position:absolute;"> 
        @{Html.EJ().ReportDesigner("designer").ServiceUrl("/api/DesignerAPI").ReportDataExtensions(ext => { ext.ClassName("WebAPIDataSource").Name("WebAPI").ImageClass("e-reportdesigner-datasource-webapi").DisplayName("WebAPI").Add(); }).Render();} 
    </div> 
    @(Html.EJ().ScriptManager()) 
 
Using the above sample, you can pull the data from WebAPI datasource with query parameter to limit the data based on tenant name. Please find the below documentation to connect WebAPI datasource with query parameter, 


Please find the below step for how to get the data using local WebAPI Datasource. 

Step 1: Run our above shared sample. 
Step 2:Choose the WebAPI in datasource dialog as shown in below snap. 
 

Step 3: Specify the URL (Specify the WebApiServiceController from our above shared sample) with localhost as shown in below snap. 
 

Step 4: Click the connect button as shown in below snap. 
 

Step 4: Click the API icon and provide the method name, parameter name and parameter value as shown in below snap with WebApiServiceController class specified methods 
 

 

Step 5: Click ok as shown in below snap. 

 

Finally its gets data from our local WebAPIservice as shown in below snap. 
 



Let us know if you need any clarification. 

Regards, 
Mahendran S.
