Web Designer - Parameter asks for input, but 'select all' default value set

    In my report, I've set several parameters to have a 'select all' value of -1 and a default value of -1, the same as the 'select all' value.

    However, when I preview the report, the parameters still require me to select a value (see screenshot below) even though the default value is set to the 'select all' value. Is this there something I am missing here?

    Hi Dushyant.

    The rdlx files I have created are in JSON format, whereas the sample you have provided is in xml and does not seem to open properly in Web Designer. Would you have a sample that is in JSON? Am I running Web Designer in a different ActiveReports.NET version that does not support XML?

    Could you inform us whether you are using ActiveReports or ActiveReportsJS? Furthermore, please specify the build version of the same.

    Hi Dushyant,

    From what I've been told, we are using ActiveReports on build 15.2.

    Hi Dushyant,

    I believe this now has something to do with reports saved in JSON format for the Web Designer in ActiveReports. We recently moved to store our reports in XML and this issue does not appear to be happening any longer.
