Hi, I'm trying out your reporting suite, but I've encountered a small issue while trying with user defined functions. I created a simple function, compiled and moved the DLL to the report designer folder and added the Assembly References and it's working properly.

The problem comes when I try to load the report in the report designer as an UriReportSource in my VB.net application. The textbox containing the function says "The expression contains object 'xxxx' that is not defined in the current context.".

Could you please point me in the right direction to overcome this issue. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ellis,

Please check the following KB article that elaborates how to handle reports which use external assemblies - Previewing a report definition that uses an external assembly.

In general, you need to extend the application config file to load the external assembly as this was done for the Standalone Report Designer.


Let us know if you have any further questions.

Thank you Stef. That worked perfectly. Seems to be that I wasn't adding the reference to the assembly in the right config file.
