    LoadLayout(XmlReader) Method
    In This Topic
    Retrieves a report XML layout from an XmlReader and loads it into a report object.
    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    Public Overloads Sub LoadLayout( _
       ByVal reader As XmlReader _
    ) 
    public void LoadLayout( 
       XmlReader reader
    )

    Parameters

    reader
    XmlReader object from which to retrieve the report's layout.
    Remarks
    This method can be executed for any existing report class (code type). However, in such cases, all the layout related information defined in existing report class is cleared and gets updated with the loaded RPX file content. Due to this reason, any code (example: Me.textBox1.Text = "ABC") that directly tries to access a control on a report and is defined in the existing report class is ignored. For event related code implementations, it is possible to embed the code in RPX file. In this case, please use Scripting.
    Example
    GrapeCity.ActiveReports.ActiveReport report = new GrapeCity.ActiveReports.ActiveReport();
    System.Xml.XmlTextReader xtr = new System.Xml.XmlTextReader("\\report.rpx");
    report.LoadLayout(xtr);
    xtr.Close();
    
    // reading from XML DOM (XmlNode)
    using (System.Xml.XmlNodeReader reader = new System.Xml.XmlNodeReader(node))
    {
       report.LoadLayout(reader);
    }
    
    // reading from stream
    using (System.Xml.XmlReader reader = System.Xml.XmlReader.Create(inputStream))
    {
       report.LoadLayout(reader);
    }
              
    // reading from string
    string layoutContent = "<ActiveReports>...  ...</ActiveReports>";
    using (System.Xml.XmlReader reader = System.Xml.XmlReader.Create(new System.IO.StringReader(layoutContent)))
    {
       report.LoadLayout(reader);
    }
    Dim report As New GrapeCity.ActiveReports.ActiveReport()
    Dim xtr As New System.Xml.XmlTextReader("\report.rpx")
    report.LoadLayout(xtr)
    xtr.Close()
    
    ' reading from XML DOM (XmlNode)
    Using reader As New System.Xml.XmlNodeReader(node)
        report.LoadLayout(reader)
