First Look at the Report Designer

The Design Surface displays a report’s structure and contents. You can use the tools on the Report Designer’s panels to design the report:

  • use the Menu to manage and set up reports;
  • drop report controls from the Toolbox to the design surface;
  • access report editing commands in the Main Toolbar;
  • use the Properties panel to set up the report controls;
  • use the Expressions panel to provide data to the report controls and conditionally shape data;
  • access the fields from the view you linked to the report Field List panel;
  • access the report’s elements in the Report Explorer panel.
