Hello:

Simply put, I want the report viewer's background color to not be white, but rather transparent. This includes the report & report details background as well as the report parameters area. I tried setting both the report Style background to transparent in the designer as well as setting the BackColor property to transparent where the report is generated. It still stays white. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello mc2000,

You have not mentioned the most important thing - which is the viewer your inquiry is about. We have report viewers for all current platforms (ASP.NET, Windows Forms, Silverlight, WPF).
If this inquiry is for the web viewer, be aware that the report resides in an iframe and the background color would be a system color that cannot be changed.

Best wishes,
Steve

Sorry, asp.net report viewer. As the iFrame is generated at run-time how do you recommend changing it's background color? Thanks.

Hello mc2000,

Currently it is not possible to change the background color to transparent.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Sincerely yours,

How about a different color or background image?

Hello mc2000,

My previous reply is confusing as it leaves you with the impression that you cannot change the color to transparent only, for which I apologize. As noted in my first post, the background color of the report is a system color applied to the iframe that cannot be changed in the current version.

Best wishes,

I found that by using JavaScipt I could programatically modify the background by setting it's background image property only (a known issue in IE). It seems to work for the report iFrame, but the report parameters area, being set in the same manner, doesn't seem to work and the developer toolbar doesn't indicate a white backgound anywhere else. I guess I'll have to find a workaround.

Frankly speaking, just about every post I put out on the forums tend to come back with the same answer - not supported. There may be one, but I can't seem to recall any posts successfully answered in recent memory. Not good.

Thanks.
