How to get a list of parameters and their values from an SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services) report from within an expression of the report. Its a nice way to echo out all parameters a report was run with without having to hardcode and means you can implement standard footers easily.

I found some tips for doing this on James Kovacs' Weblog. But the code wasnt there, so here it is if you wish to implement it. Another useful msdn article is here.

I am using the imported DLL mechanism of writing code for reports (rather than the inline Code section) Simply add this method to an assembly and reference it in your report. Remember to copy the dll to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\" to test it when previewing from Visual Studio.

To call this function put a TextBox on your report, edit the expression and add the line
=YourDll.DisplayParams(Parameters, "Param1, Param2");


The function for the assembly
using Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportProcessing.ReportObjectModel;

///
/// Builds a list of SQL Server Reporting Services Parameters based on a parameter object
/// and a comma delimited string of param names
///
public static string DisplayParams(Parameters obj, string strParams)
{
    StringBuilder sbRet = new StringBuilder();
    try
    {
        //parameters in comma delimited list which matches
        //the name of the parameter in the collection.
        foreach (string sParam in strParams.Split(','))
        {
            //the name of the parameter
            sbRet.Append(String.Format("{0}: ", sParam));

            //concat parmaeter values
            if (obj[sParam].IsMultiValue)
                for (int i = 0; i < obj[sParam].Count - 1; i++)
                    sbRet.Append(String.Format("{0} : ",
                            ((string[])obj[sParam].Label)[i]).Trim());
            else
                sbRet.Append(String.Format("{0}", obj[sParam].Label).Trim());

            //remove any trailing commas
            if (sbRet.ToString().EndsWith(", "))
                sbRet.Remove(sbRet.Length - 2, 2);

                        // seperator for each parameter
                        sbRet.Append("; ");
        }
    }
    catch (Exception)
    {
        return "Error building parameter list";
    }

    return sbRet.ToString();
}

ASP.NET RadioButton GroupName when inside a Repeater on Sun 10th Jun 8am
I was thankful on finding this nugget of code, which makes the groupname work out when slamming in radiobuttons in an asp.net repeater. http://www.codeguru.com/csharp/csharp/cs _controls/custom/article.php/c12371/
