Hi

Does anyone know how to open a report from a C# script within a process?

Thanks,

Steve

What do you mean by 'open' exactly?

Hi Stevenlee100,

I guess you like to open a report (sql server reporting) on the client side, right. You can open a Url with javascript in a popup window or you can show the report through an IFRAME.

Does that help?

Best regards

Hi,

Sorry, should have made it clearer...

Rather than the user having to click a report from the Reports page to open it, I would like to be able to open it via some sort of user action on a form (within a process).  Perhaps a link or something on the form?

Thanks

That ain't SQL Server reporting then, that's Metastorm reporting!

Do the same as for an admin form (that is all they are really) and add a 'new folder' button. The process name is the Report Group name, and the action name is the Report name.

Thanks Jerome.  I didn't realise it was that simple!  Much appreciated.

It's only simple when you know how ;-)

As a follow up. How would you pass the eFolderId from the parent window to this report?

Thank you

Never mind. I research this forum and found the solution.

You need to setCookie and getCookie. Search the form for the solution.

Or turn on AllowFilterParams in web.config and pass filter variables in the URL.  I open a report this way.  e.g. a link like /Metastorm/eReport.aspx?Map=<report group name>&Action=<report name>&FilterParams=<para name>;<value>;<type> [:<param name 2>;<value 2>;<type 2> ...]
