    Reporting version

    .NET version

    Visual Studio version

    programming language javascript
    To convert code

    Telerik online converter  

    By design the progress indicator is shown at the center of the web report viewing area. This project shows how to change the position of the progress indicator with a few lines of javascript:

     <script type="text/javascript"
                var ddl1 = document.getElementById("<%=DropDownList1.ClientID%>"); 
                var ddl2 = document.getElementById("<%=DropDownList2.ClientID%>"); 
                var viewer = <%=ReportViewer1.ClientID%>; 
                var waitDiv = document.getElementById("ReportViewer1_ReportArea_WaitControl"); 
                var tcell = waitDiv.getElementsByTagName("TD")[0]; 
       = ddl1.value; 
       = ddl2.value; 

    A sample project showing the functionality at hand is attached to this thread. For those of you who would like to change the viewer's skin and progress indicator itself, Applying custom skin to the web report viewer code library is just for you!

    This doesnt seem to work for Q3 2012 Reporting.  Did anything change in the object model?  I keep getting an error that the TD element and the waitdiv object are null.

    Hi Andrew,

    If you download the project attached to this thread, use the Upgrade Wizard to upgrade and run the project, it would function as expected. So we suspect you're getting this error in your own project, correct? If so, did you make sure the implementation is the same i.e. the viewer is first on the page and the javascript is after it?
