I am working on windows application in which showing an rdlc report, Now i need to hide the report viewer toolbar and place an button and dropdown with options of Excel/PDF/Word, so when ever we select and click export button, the report should be exported, Can anyone guide me...

1 solution

1- Disable the toolbar.
2- Add a button control to the form. For the Text property of the button, type Export to PDF File.
3- Double-click the button control to specify code for the Click event.

// Variables
Warning[] warnings;
string[] streamIds;
string mimeType = string.Empty;
string encoding = string.Empty;
string extension = string.Empty;

// Setup the report viewer object and get the array of bytes
ReportViewer viewer = new ReportViewer();
viewer.ProcessingMode = ProcessingMode.Local;
viewer.LocalReport.ReportPath = "YourReportHere.rdlc";

byte[] bytes = viewer.LocalReport.Render("PDF", null, out mimeType, out encoding, out extension, out streamIds, out warnings);

// Now that you have all the bytes representing the PDF report, buffer it and send it to the client.
Response.Buffer = true;
Response.ContentType = mimeType;
Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=" + fileName + "." + extension);
Response.BinaryWrite(bytes); // create the file

Above mentioned solution works. It's for windows application in C#. Please explain what you want if you can't understanding the solution?
