When i preview a report in the Designer I get an error in a PictureBox that has some conditional formatting depending on the values from the Datasource (see attach).

It's weird because if i render this report to pdf, I get no errors (I just supply parameters to the report, I dont set any datasources).

How can I fix this in the designer?

Hello Paulo,

When page sections are processed, data is not available and fields should not be used in expressions - Report Structure and Understanding Rendering Behaviors.
Instead you can use the PageExec function and the data available on the current physical page by specifying the Name of an item on the page as data scope.

If you need further help, please elaborate on the scenario and the expressions used in page sections.

Regards,
Stef
