Adding Interactive Features (Report Builder 2.0)

In environments that support interactivity, such as HTML 4.0, reports can include a variety of features that provide interactivity to users. Users can influence the appearance of a report and the data it contains by typing or selecting a value for a parameter before running the report. A user can show or hide items in a report and click links that go to other reports or Web pages. You can add a document map, which acts like a table of contents. A user can click items in the document map to jump to areas within a report.

In Report Builder 2.0, certain features are only supported when you have an active connection to the report server. For more information, see Working with and without a Report Server (Report Builder 2.0).

You can enable a user to control report display and content by designing expressions that include parameter references for sort, filter, and visibility. For more information, see Adding Parameters to Your Report (Report Builder 2.0), Sorting Data in a Report (Report Builder 2.0), and Filtering Data in a Report (Report Builder 2.0).
