    We are using Telerik Reporting Q3 2014 web report viewer in our MVC 4 project running .net 4.5. 
    With our reports that use a textbox that require an integer input, we found an issue with data entry into those fields. This issue is only found in IE8+, Google Chrome, and Firefox are unable to replicate this issue. The issue is that whenever an integer is put into this field it is not being sent back to the report resolver and makes the report parameters inoperable for the report rendering it useless. Is this a known issue? 

    I'm wanting to make custom report parameters for drop down lists, so i may be able to make that work with this particular field. If i can put in Kendo Datetime picker that just does a year it would work better... 

         So i guess my question after all this, Using the project that i specified above and using an MVC control for the report viewer, how do i go about creating custom parameters for the options on the report.

    Hi Clint,

    Internet Explorer 8 is not supported because it is not not HTML5 compliant - System Requirements. The current report rendering in HTML is considered with the HTML5 specification and cannot be adjusted for IE8 or other older browsers.

    There are added fallback mechanisms in the HTML rendering for non HTML5 compliant browsers, but still IE8 is not supported by the HTML5 Report Viewer (HTML5 Report Viewer browser support). Thus my recommendation is to use a meta tag forcing IE to render pages in the highest possible standard mode - Defining document compatibility.


    Then you can use the approach from the How To: Create a Custom Parameter Editor article to create custom editor for report parameters.


    I hope the provided information is helpful.

    Given the How To document that you have provided, Is there a document tailored for MVC 4? the code snippets contained in that how-to are driven toward a full jquery rendering of the ReportViewer. I use the MVC controls to render it.

    Hi Clint,

    If you are using the HTML5 Report Viewer, IE8 is not supported and reports must be displayed in HTML5 compliant browsers.

    Then to use customized parameters editors, you will have to use the HTML5 Report Viewer jQuery widget and its parameterEditors option. The MVC wrapper does not expose such option yet - it is logged in our system and you can also add a feature request in our public feedback portal to raise the task priority based on the demand for it.


    In order to provide you more accurate suggestions, please elaborate on the used viewer and its settings in the MVC project.
