In this RDLC Reports tutorial, we will explore how to generate the RDLC Reports using the Microsoft supplied report template (.RDLC file). We get the data from the ‘Titles’ table of the Microsoft supplied ‘Pubs’ database. In this example, the ReportViewer Control acts as a presentation UI. To generate the report on the database table, we will use following things:
‘DataSource’ that supplies the data from the database.
‘Report Template’ that defines the visible elements and its location. [.RDLC file]
‘ReportViewer Control’ supplied by the dot net framework.
‘C-Sharp Form’ that houses the ReportViewer control in it.
