Hi Sunil,

You can modify those labels through the Web Report Viewer's Resources properties.  The properties for the report parameter True and False labels are 

  • ReportViewer1.Resources.ReportParametersFalseValueLabel
  • ReportViewer1.Resources.ReportParametersTrueValueLabel

All the best,

Hi Peter,

I am using a Winforms app for reporting, and not a web form.
Also, with your approach, I cannot set custom text for multiple true/false parameters in the same report.
I think showing custom text to the user is a very valid requirement for end-users, since most end-users do not like a true/false type of condition. They would rather prefer something like:Order Qty is 0 ( i.e. false) and Order Qty > 0 (i.e. true) for a boolean parameter called OrderQtyExists.
I hope there was an easy way to set the labels for true/false on  a per parameter basis.

Thanks
Sunil

Hi Sunil,

The Report Parameter area provides out of the box UI support for the parameters that covers 98% of the user cases and for that reason it is not customizable. In order to achieve your requirement, you should create custom UI for the parameters (for example using our WinForms controls) and hook it up to the parameters via the Reporting API. 

Best wishes,
