RDLC Report Access?

We have switched our desktop app over to use RDLC reports.  I can see the rendering panel but nothing under it.  Has anyone else cracked this egg?

Hi @scot1967 

 

RDLC Report belongs to Microsoft Access, right? In this case, please refer to the following page explaining how to work with the report:

Re: RDLC Report Access?

Maybe, I'll have a go and post back with my results.  The rendering panel does not seem to expose the data it contains.  It acts like an image.  If this is the case then there may be very little I can do except export data to Excel from my application and check what I can there or use some sort of image verification but I don't have the 'Intelligent quality add-on'  :-/

I have had a go at this but nothing seems to work.  The object tree dead ends at the rendering panel.  I also went digging into Addressing Objects in WPF...

I think the problem may be that this Rendering pannel is a WinForms object not WPF.  So I went digging into the WinForms Object Method...

This lead me to a post about adding entries to the MSAA or UI Automations Project options...

Nothing has worked.  The UI Automation Section is still pretty much empty and the contents of the RenderingPanel object are still not available.  Smiley Sad

Re: RDLC Report Access?

What is a "rendering panel"?

 

By the name... the contents are rendered images or something... so, they may not be actually detected as individual OLE compatible objects (regardless of kind) so you might not have that kind of access to the contents.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
