    To load a SSRS report in FlexViewer programmatically

    Step 1: Setting up the application

    1. Create a new WinForms application.
    2. Drag and drop C1SSRSDocumentSource and C1FlexViewer on the form.

    Step 2: Load the SSRS report in FlexViewer

    1. Switch to the code view and add the following code to initialize the variables to be used as parameters for NetWorkCredential Property.
      Shared ReadOnly _
      ssrsUrl As String = "http:// server url",
      ssrsName As String = "*",
      ssrspwd As String = "*",
      ssrsdomain As String = String.Empty
      
      static readonly string
      ssrsUrl = "http:// server url",
      ssrsName = "*",
      ssrspwd = "*",
      ssrsdomain = string.Empty;
      
    2. Add the following code in the Form1_Load event to provide the location of the report on the server using DocumentLocation and set the credentials using Credential property:
      C1SSRSDocumentSource1.DocumentLocation =
      New SSRSReportLocation(ssrsUrl, "AdventureWorks/Product Catalog")
      C1SSRSDocumentSource1.Credential =
      New NetworkCredential(ssrsName, ssrspwd, ssrsdomain)
      
      c1SSRSDocumentSource1.DocumentLocation =
      new SSRSReportLocation(ssrsUrl, "AdventureWorks/Product Catalog");
      c1SSRSDocumentSource1.Credential =
      new NetworkCredential(ssrsName, ssrspwd, ssrsdomain);
      
    3. Render the SSRS report in the FlexViewer control using DocumentSource property.
      C1FlexViewer1.DocumentSource = C1SSRSDocumentSource1
      
      c1FlexViewer1.DocumentSource = c1SSRSDocumentSource1;
      

    Step 3: Build and run the project

    1. Press Ctrl+Shift+B to build the project.
    2. Press F5 to run the application.
