Is there a way to include the Selected Values from a Multi-Value parameter in the report, when just using the stand-alone designer?

I have seen posts that discuss creating user functions in Visual Studio, but no solution for those of us who need to create reports using the stand-alone designer.

Is this possible? I am using Version 10.2.16.1025

Thanks,

Cecilia Daniels

Hi Cecilia,

To use a custom function in Standalone Designer, it needs to be extended - Extending Report Designer.

How to use external assemblies with custom user functions in the Report Designer KB article provides more detailed steps on how to configure the Designer to use the custom functions.

Hi Katia,

Thank you for getting back to me and pointing me in the right direction.

It's nice to know that it is possible, but it seems like a stand-alone designer shouldn't require custom code for something so basic.

Hello Cecilia,

Just to be sure if I understood the question correctly - to show the value of multivalue parameter in the report, you can use Join() built-in function, for example:
= Join(", ", Parameters.Parameter1)

This will return all values selected for the Parameter1 separated with comma in a single string, given that the Parameter1 is a multivalue parameter.

If your scenario is different, then you might need to add the user function in which case the Standalone Designer needs to be extended.
