Look into allowing Drilldown reports to work properly #27
@alanjuden I am looking into implementing this as well as the show/hide toggles but I can't seem to find documentation around how to make the generated HTML include identifiers or if this functionality even exists. What documentation were you using to help you? I have looked through all of the technet docs and can't seem to pinpoint how to define show/hide toggles. If I figure it out I can contribute the code back.
For the drill-down reports, we overrode the print and export features of the viewer.
We resolved toggling and sorting for the drill-down reports in a similar way: from the drill-down HTML report content we extract the execution id. This id is required for the Reporting Server to process the sorting/toggling request and return new HTML report content.
The second and last limitation we have (besides not having paging for drill-down reports) is extracting the execution id from the drill-down HTML content: SSRS set execution id only to image URL links (as far as I know) as part of the query string. This means that if the drill-down report does not have an image then sort and toggle operations will not work.
Once again, our drill down reports have images so this compromise is acceptable for our case.
If you think that this approach will work for you I'll be happy to share code snippets.
Alan, thank you a lot for the great work you have done with this viewer.
I am using .net c# programming to view the report from SSRS(.rdl) using WCF based on Alan Juden.
When i tried to toggle the button, the server simply returns an empty response, nothing shown in the response neither data (same “without drilldown” data) nor error.
I am simply clueless about what is happening. I am facing SSRS(.rdl) Drilldown, Sorting and Drillthrough issues for viewing the report.
I think your above approach is work for me, It is really helpful if you share code snippets or any example related to Sorting, DrillDown, Drillthrough which is working at your side based on Alan Juden.
Great to hear that you resolved the drilldown reports.
I am having the same issue, if you can help me with your code snippet it will be great full.
