Verifying the Rendering of Bold Reports and SSRS Report Viewer: A Sample Code


Bold Reports is a comprehensive reporting solution that enables businesses to create visually appealing and interactive reports, dashboards, and data visualizations. Bold Reports can use SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services) reports. Bold Reports supports the RDL (Report Definition Language) format, which is the same XML-based structure used by SSRS reports. This means that you can import and leverage existing SSRS reports within the Bold Reports platform.

To facilitate the comparison of both SSRS and Bold Reports previews on a single page, we have developed a sample application and attached it to this kb. This knowledge base article provides instructions for comparing the previews of SSRS and Bold Reports using a sample application.

  1. Download and run the sample application provided in the attachment.

  2. The application will direct you to the Login page.


  3. On the Login page, enter the SSRS server URL to retrieve the report from the SSRS. If you prefer using Windows credentials for login, you can enable the checkbox provided.


  4. If you prefer to connect with a username and password, uncheck the checkbox and enter the appropriate login details to access your SSRS server and retrieve the reports.


  5. Select the desired report from the drop-down option.


  6. Click on the “View Report” button to render the report and compare the previews.


  7. Analyze and compare the previews of the SSRS report and the Bold Reports rendition to gain a deeper understanding of their respective features and capabilities.


By following these steps and using the sample application, you can easily compare the previews of SSRS and Bold Reports reports on a single page. This facilitates the evaluation and understanding of the features and capabilities offered by both reporting solutions.

Note: Ensure that you have the necessary permissions and access rights to retrieve SSRS reports and use Bold Reports for an accurate comparison.
