Hi

I would like the RadFormDecorator to skin the reportviewer , i have managed to implement a custom skin and custom css for the viewer but i am unable to style all aspects of the control. Can you please inform me how i can style to following;

PreviewButton
Change the text (to be "Refresh" ) and skin to RadFormDecorator style  (Black... etc )
Parameters Panel
apply a background image
Parameters Drop Down List Box
Change skin to RadFormDecorator style
Report Viewer Scroll Bar
Change skin to RadFormDecorator style

Please see Pic1 below for an example

The odd thing is that the Drop Down List Box scroll bars are affected by the RadFormDecorator style  but nothing else ( please see pic2 below )

Hi Richard,

At this point using the RadFormDecorator to style the Web ReportViewer control is not possible. The parameters area is not exposed to any customization unless you apply global styles that would affect all html elements on the page. If you need a customized parameter area, you would need to prepare your own UI - this video sheds more light on the matter or view the source of the Viewer on the page and the classes that are applied and override them.

Hello Richard,

Actually this proved to be pretty hard to do as well, because the ReportViewer's report and parameters areas are actually in separate iframes and accessing those controls and applying external css into iframes is not a trivial task and requires quite a few ugly javascript hacks.
We've logged this as feature request to our TODO list and would think of a way to have the parameters area as part of the page where the viewer resides.

Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.

Regards,

Hi
Thanks anyway, as a bonus i would still like the report viewer to inherit the skin from a RadFormDecorator

Has styling the parameters area of the report viewer been addressed in the 2009 3rd quarter release?  If not when will it be addressed?

Hello Blake,

We have not had a time to research on that since there are other pending tasks with higher priority and providing your own UI for the parameters is pretty easy "workaround".

Kind regards,
