  • Format
    The format in which to render the stream. This argument maps to a rendering extension. Supported extensions include XML, NULL, CSV, IMAGE, PDF, HTML4.0, HTML3.2, MHTML, EXCEL, and HTMLOWC. A list of supported extensions may be obtained by calling the ListRenderingExtensions method.
  • StreamID
    The stream identifier.
  • DeviceInfo
    Describes device specific content used by the rendering extension.
  • Encoding
    [out]The .NET Framework encoding class name.
  • MimeType
    [out]The MIME type of the stream.

Return Value

A Byte[] array of the stream in the specified format. For more information about this data type, see "Byte Structure" in the Microsoft .NET Framework documentation.


Secondary streams are available to provide additional resources that may be needed by a custom rendering extension to render a report.

Examples of secondary streams can include images and charts, individual report pages, and CSS stylesheets.
