ReportViewer and ActiveX


I need to (somehow) show the ReportViewer (Microsoft Reports) in a ActiveX

I got a 3rd. party app (SAP Business One) where I need to use the
ReportViewer and the only way to show the control (using SBO's internal API)
is through an ActiveX control.

I see no posiblity to "load" the ReportViewer control from COM (I could be
wrong here)

Has anyone an idea how to approach this ??
Any thoughts greatly appriciated...: )

Hi Nicholas,

Well - with a little C++ MFC programming there actually is !!

With new MFC 8 classes CWinFormsView, CWinFormsContro l and CWinFormsDialog
you're able to "host" your .NET UserControls in MFC apps.
Creating a MFC ActiveX and putting a CWinFormsContro l (hosting a
Microsoft.Repor ting.WinForms.R eportViewer) on it, I'm now able to (at least)
show the viewer as an ActiveX control. Still needs to do some work mapping
events, properties ect - but I'm getting there :)

As the new MFC classes are fullt documenten, so must be the approach!!

I was wondering why is there so little interest on the reportviewer control and the report designer integrated in VS 2005. It seems very cool and i think it can replace Crystal Reports. Moreover, it can be used locally (you give the filled dataset) or in conjunction with SqlServer Reporting Services. I am interested with local reports (not reporting services actually), here are two useful links about reportviewer: Microsoft web...

Hello, I started using the Reportviewer control (very nice) for generating Reporting Services type reports in my VB2005 app. I have been experimenting using a designer Reportviewer control from the toolbox - created at design time - (VB2005) and also creating a Reportviewer control at runtime on the fly. The runtime Reportviewer will populate/display data with a runtime dataAdapter, but the designer Reportviewer from the toolbox is...
