Problem Unhiding Parameter Drop-down Menus From Subreport in Report Manager 2008 R2
Hello All, I am using a drop-down box in a report so the user can select a parameter. Once the "View Report" button is clicked and the report refreshed, the user has the option of clicking a button (really a textbox made to look like a button) to open a subreport. The parameter selected in the previous report is passed to this subreport. This functionality all works fine, but the problem i'm having is that when the subreport opens, the parameter drop-down boxes are hidden in Report Manager. This is a problem because in RS 2008 R2, the button to unhide the drop-down boxes is hard to see and not intuitive to end users. I would like to know if there is a way to tell Report Manager NOT to hide the drop-down boxes. The weird thing i've noticed is that when I use the URL option to open the report instead of using the subreport option (under ACTION on the textbox/button), the parameter drop-down menus are not hidden. Only when using the subreport option does it remain hidden. I have a rather large project and so using URLs will be tricky and not very easy to maintain. Can anyone tell me how to prevent the parameter drop-down boxes from being hidden in Report Manager?
