Lesson 6: Run the RDL Schema Application (VB - C#)


Applies To: SQL Server 2016

Visual Studio offers two methods to build and run a console application from the integrated development environment (IDE):

  • Start (with Debugging)

  • Start without Debugging

To build and run the SampleRDLSchema application

  1. From the Debug menu, click Start Without Debugging. This ensures that the console window remains open after the program has finished executing.

    The application prints the following output to the console:

    Loading Report Definition
    Updating Report Definition
    - Old Description: <Old Report Description>
    - New Description: <New Report Description>
    Publishing Report Definition
  2. Press any key to close the console.

  3. When the sample application is finished running an updated copy of the report will be saved to the report server.
