I have read some articles having to use the rdlc report in vb.net instead of crystal report. but upon trying
crystal report is much easier to manipulate but when it comes to setup and development, you will encounter too many errors.

now i want to use the rdlc in generating the reports but i cant seem to figure out how to call the rdlc report viewer in button click.

I encoded the code below in my button code but nothing happens

can some one enlighten me how to use the rdlc report?

What I have tried:

Me.displayTableAdapter.Fill(Me.aludbDataSet.display)
   Me.ReportViewer1.RefreshReport()

I'd strongly suggest to read this: Use WinForms ReportViewer Control - SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) | Microsoft Docs[^]
There you'll find complete tutorial about loading rdlc report.

Note: do not forget to use links on the left pane of MSDN site.

Good luck!

You're very welcome.
This is not a tuition site and your question is too expansive for a Quick Answers forum. I suggest you continue your research into how to use RDLC - there is a little bit more to it than the code you have shared.

You could start here (not an endorsement) RDLC reports in Visual Studio 2019 (C# Code) - YouTube[^]

If you get stuck with a specific problem then by all means come back with a question

Unfair downvote corrected!

Thank you. Amusingly the OP has probably now discovered they can't "attack" members with multiple downvotes on recent posts. Laughable really
