WebReport report = new WebReport(); report.Width = 800; report.Height = 800; report.Report.Load(Server.MapPath("App_Data/Master-Detail.frx")); report.ShowPrevButton = false; //Hide previous page button report.ShowNextButton = false; // Hide next page button report.ShowBottomToolbar = true; //Show the toolbar at the bottom report.ShowFirstButton = false; //Hide first page button report.ShowLastButton = false; // Hide last page button report.ShowExports = false; //Hide export display button report.ShowMhtExport = false; //Hide export to MHT report.ShowOdsExport = false; // Hide export to ODS report.ShowOdtExport = false; // Hide export to ODT report.ShowPdfExport = false; // Hide export to PDF report.ShowPowerPoint2007Export = false; // Hide export to PwerPoint report.ShowRtfExport = false; // Hide export to RTF report.ShowTextExport = false; // Hide export to Text report.ShowWord2007Export = false; // Hide export to Wors=d report.ShowXmlExcelExport = false; //С Hide export to Excel report.ShowXpsExport = false; // Hide export to XPS report.ShowDbfExport = false; // Hide export to DBF report.ShowCsvExport = false; // Hide export to CSV report.ShowOutline = false; //Hide report plan display report.ShowPageNumber = false; //Hide the current number of the page report.ToolbarBackgroundStyle = ToolbarBackgroundStyle.Dark; //Select the theme of toolbar report.ToolbarColor = Color.Aqua; //Select colour of toolbar report.ToolbarIconsStyle = ToolbarIconsStyle.Blue; //Hide export to format from the toolbar report.ShowRefreshButton = false; //Hide the report update button report.ShowZoomButton = false; //Hide the scaling button report.ShowToolbar = false; //Hide the toolbar report.ShowPrint = false; //Hide print button
