Bind Report Controls to Data (Expression Bindings)
Use the approach below if expression bindings are enabled in the Report Designer (the Report Designer provides the Expressions panel ).
You can use the following approaches to include a data source's information in your report:
Use the Field List
Drop a data field from this panel onto a report's surface to create a new report control bound to the corresponding field.
Drop a data field onto an existing control to bind this control to the corresponding field.
You can also drop an entire data table onto a report to create a Table control with its cells bound to the corresponding data table fields.
To select multiple fields in the Field List, hold CTRL or SHIFT and click the fields. Drop these fields onto a report to create a new table.
Use the Properties Panel
Select a report control and switch to the Properties panel. Click the Text property's marker and select Text Expression from the popup menu. Select a data field or construct a binding expression in the invoked Expression Editor.
You can use the same approach to specify expressions for all the control properties. See Shape Report Data for more tutorials.
