Hi BK, By design, the SQL Server Reporting Services(SSRS) will render a report on the server side without the event you mentioned. This means the functionality is not enabled in current SSRS versions. It seems you want to high light each row, if so, we can use the altering color instead to fix the issue. Chris Hays provides a sample about this on his blog: Or, please submit a wish at If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks, Jin ChenJin Chen - MSFT

As per above, SSRS is not an event driven engine. the only way I can imagine being able to do this would be to have a parameter on the report which is set to NULL by default. On click, call the same report but pass the unique reference for the row clicked on in the parameter and test for this to set the background colour of the row. This does of course have the major drawback of re-running the report every time a row is clicked on.....Rgds Geoff
