  • Format
    The format of the rendering extension for which to retrieve the resource (HTML5, XML, IMAGE, and so on).
  • DeviceInfo
    The device-specific settings used by the rendering extension.
  • MimeType
    The MIME type of the resource.

Return Value

The rendering extension resource as a Base 64-encoded byte array. For more information about this data type, see "Byte Structure" in the Microsoft .NET Framework documentation.


An example of a rendering resource that is returned by the GetRenderResource method is the plus (+) image, which is used to expand groups in the HTML rendering extension. The resource that the method returns depends on the DeviceInfo parameter that is supplied. For more information about device information settings for rendering extensions, see Reporting Services Device Information Settings.
