SSRS: How to open a linked SSRS Report with parameter in popup

Last month working with SSRS related project, requirement was to open another report on click of date field. Basically, when user clicks on date field in main SSRS report, it should open another report in pop up.

Approach: To achieve the requirement, I've used JavaScript function. Here are the steps , how I have done it !
1. Click on Textbox Property of Date field.
2. Click on Action , Select Go to URL.
3. Click on Expression and apply a code as below.

 ="javascript:void('" & Cstr(Parameters!BaseUrl.Value) & "?ScheduleId=" & Cstr(Fields!BS_ID.Value) & "','blank','toolbar=no, menubar=no,scrollbars=no, resizable=no, location=no, addressbar=no, left=100,top=100,height=350,width=500'))"  


Now, I'll explain you how we can pass BaseURL and other fields as a parameter to generate other SSRS Report. I have a Page named "AdminReport.aspx" which has following code.

 <rsweb:ReportViewer ID="rptViewer" runat="server" Height="500px" Style="-ms-overflow-y: scroll" Width="1100px" ShowToolBar="False" ShowParameterPrompts="False" ShowCredentialPrompts="False"></rsweb:ReportViewer>   

In Code behind of AdminReport Page, I've used below code to bind a second report:
 private void ShowReport()  
         string urlReportServer = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["ReportViewerUrl"]; //It is a URL Of Report Server.
         rptViewer.ProcessingMode = ProcessingMode.Remote; // Processing Mode will be either Remote or Local.
         rptViewer.ServerReport.ReportServerUrl = new Uri(urlReportServer); //Set the Report Server URL.
         rptViewer.ServerReport.ReportPath = "/AdminReport"; //Set path of Report Page.
         //Create an Array List to combine the Parameters which are to be passed into SSRS Report.  
         ArrayList reportParam = new ArrayList();  
         reportParam = ReportDefaultParam();  
         ReportParameter[] param = new ReportParameter[reportParam.Count];  
         for (int k = 0; k < reportParam.Count; k++)  
           param[k] = (ReportParameter)reportParam[k];  
         rptViewer.ServerReport.ReportServerCredentials = new CustomReportServerCredentials();  // Set Credentials.
         rptViewer.ServerReport.SetParameters(param); //Set Report Parameters  
       catch (Exception ex)  
         CommonUtilities.WriteEventToLogFile(CommonUtilities.GetCurrentTime() + ":AdminViewReport : ShowReport : " + ex.ToString(), "", "", "");  
         // throw ex;  
     /// <summary>  
     /// Pass default parameters to the report  
     /// </summary>  
     /// <returns></returns>  
     private ArrayList ReportDefaultParam()  
       ArrayList arrLstDefaultParam = new ArrayList();  
       string strPathAndQuery = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.PathAndQuery;  
       string strUrl = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.AbsoluteUri.Replace(strPathAndQuery, "/");  
       string baseUrl = strUrl + "ScheduleMaterialReport.aspx";  
       arrLstDefaultParam.Add(CreateReportParameter("BaseUrl", baseUrl));  
       return arrLstDefaultParam;  
     /// <summary>  
     /// Create report using parameters  
     /// </summary>  
     /// <param name="paramName"></param>  
     /// <param name="pramValue"></param>  
     /// <returns></returns>  
     private ReportParameter CreateReportParameter(string paramName, string pramValue)  
       ReportParameter aParam = new ReportParameter(paramName, pramValue);  
       return aParam;  
  • BaseURL - is URL of the second report page, "/SubReport.aspx").
  • BS_ID.value - is the ID (value) of selected record in main Report.
  • ScheduledId - is the field passed as query string parameter to second SSRS report.
We pass this value from main report to other report as query string parameter. E.g.: http://siteurl/SubReport.aspx?ScheduleId=6
 int ScheduleId =Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString["ScheduleId"]))  

Now, when user clicks on Date field in Main Report ("AdminReport.aspx" page), other report will open in "SubReport.aspx" page as pop up.
