Custom Report Items
Hi All, I am using SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services and have successfully created and deployed a Custom Report Item to use instead of the standard Chart Control. This new Item works fine in both Report Designer (Visual Studio) and when generating Reports on the Report Server However, I have a requirement that the same chart style must be available in Report Builder. Unfortunately, when using Report Builder to create a new report I can only select Tabular, Matrix or Chart style, and the chart option uses the standard style which is not suitable. I cannot see any obvious way of including a Custom Report Item within Report Builder, so I have 2 questions : Can Iuse a Custom Report Item in Report Builder? None of the samples or tutorials that I have found give any indication of whether this is possible. Thanks in advance Paul

Hi,though I'm unable to help you with your problems you seem to have solved a problem I'm currently facing.See:'m currently developing a report item and have to access the data set directly or at least retrieve the data for the current data group (when the item is embedded in a table). Do you happen to have good documentation on this issue?Thanks in advance!
