Visual Studio 2010 is Now Available

As many of you know, Visual Studio 2010 was released last week.  We’ve done a lot of work to the ReportViewer control in this release:

  • Support for ASP.Net AJAX

  • Support for the SQL 2008 RDLC schema, including tablix, rich text, and enhanced charts and gauges

  • Significant improvement to support for standards mode and non-IE browsers

  • A new javascript API for the ASP.Net viewer for use on the client

  • Many API updates to both the ASP.Net and winforms controls

The runtime redistributable has been posted and is available from  The language packs will be posted as the localized versions of Visual Studio become available.

With every release, we prioritize our efforts based on the feedback we receive from you.  As always, we look forward to your feedback and suggestions on areas we can improve.

    Do you know if there is a native WPF ReportViewer in the works?

    It’s long overdue.

    You need to make people aware that the new reportviewer control is required in order for VS2010 to transparently utilize .rdlc files from VS2008 in the VS2010 designer.  In other words ReportViewer v9.0 doesn’t work with RDLC 2008, but v10.0 does after VS2010 does the conversion.

    A lot of people are apparently unaware of the above and are pulling their hair out.
