Export SSRS Report to PDF without using ReportViewer in ASP.NetAsk Questions

 Posted on 10/21/2019

Hi! I am using one report viewer and one asp button.

On button click i am passing parameters to the report and then generating it in report viewer.

Now i want that instead of showing it in report viewer it should be shown in any pdf viewer in pdf format. Also it would have a download pdf option so that user can download that pdf.

This is the solution i came up with :

public void ExportToPDF(string path, List<ReportParameter> reportParams,string fileName)
       Warning[] warnings;
       string[] streamIds;
       string mimeType = string.Empty;
       string encoding = string.Empty;
       string extension = string.Empty;

       // Setup the report viewer object and get the array of bytes

       var viewer = new ReportViewer();
       viewer.ProcessingMode = ProcessingMode.Remote;
       viewer.ServerReport.ReportServerUrl = new Uri("http://localhost/ReportServer");
       viewer.ServerReport.ReportPath = "/"+path;
       byte[] bytes = viewer.ServerReport.Render("PDF", null, out mimeType, out encoding, out extension,
           out streamIds, out warnings);

       // Now that you have all the bytes representing the PDF report, buffer it and send it to the client.
       Response.Buffer = true;
       Response.ContentType = mimeType;
       Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename="+fileName+"." + extension);
       Response.BinaryWrite(bytes); // create the file
       Response.Flush(); // send it to the client to download
