Pass DataTable to ReportViewer Vb

I am trying to pass a datatable to a reportviewer wich I fill it by code , is there a way to do that ? i try this but nothing happen

Dim bs As BindingSource
bs = New BindingSource()
bs.DataSource = DataTablefillbycode
Dim rs As ReportDataSource
rs = New ReportDataSource()
rs.Name = "Tabletest"
rs.Value = bs
form2.ReportViewer1.LocalReport.ReportEmbeddedResource = "Test.Report1.rdlc"



PS : The GridView works fine with the table "Tablefillbycode"

The ReportViewer


Follow these steps to be able to pass data table to your report:

  1. I suppose you created a Report1.rdlc in root of your project Test, so the name of its embedded resource would be Test.Report1.rdlc. Also I suppose the name of DataSet in your Report1 is DataSet1.

  2. Put a report viewer on your Form2 and set its Dock property to Fill and set its Modifier property to Public.

  3. In Form1 I suppose you have a DataGridView1 that you want to fill it in the Form_Load and you will use the same query that you used for creating report.

  4. In Form1 I suppose you have a Button1 that you want to show Form2 when you click on Button1 and you want pass the data of DataGridView1 to it.

Don't forget to Imports Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms in Form1


Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    Dim cn = "data source=(localdb)\v11.0;initial catalog=TestDB;integrated security=True;"
    Dim cmd = "SELECT Id,Name FROM Category"
    Dim adapter = New SqlDataAdapter(cmd, cn)
    Dim table = New DataTable()
    Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = table
End Sub

Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    Dim form2 = New Form2()
    Dim rds= New ReportDataSource("DataSet1", Me.DataGridView1.DataSource)
    form2.ReportViewer1.LocalReport.ReportEmbeddedResource = "Test.Report1.rdlc"
End Sub
