Reporting Services – Custom Code requests

If you’ve been developing complex reports in reporting services then you will likely have resorted to custom code to solve issues like custom aggregations and custom colour palettes. Below are a set of suggestions that relate to developing custom code. All 4 of these are a royal pain in the a***, I can understand that the code editor isn’t a first class editor but why I really don’t know why they don’t have enumerators for the fields, parameters, variable collections or why you can’t access the datasets programmatically.

If you find this items would be useful please vote on them.


Being able to loop through the parameters

Having shared code so its not embedded in reports

Can’t use imports statement with custom code

Intellisense, compilation etc.

Access to datasets from custom code
