void SetConfiguration(
	string configuration
)

Parameters

configuration
Type: System.String

The XML string from the configuration file that contains extension configuration data.

Configuration data that you store in the configuration file for your custom extension takes the form of a Configuration element. The Configuration element is a child element of the Extension element entry in the rsreportserver.config file. The XML structure used in the configuration file might look like the one in the following example:

<Extension Name="My Extension" Type="Microsoft.Samples.ReportingServices.MyExtension.ExtensionClass,Microsoft.Samples.ReportingServices.MyExtension">
   <Configuration>
      <MyExtensionConfigurationData>
         <MyExtensionData1>Value</MyExtensionData1>
         <MyExtensionData2>Value</MyExtensionData2>
      </MyExtensionConfigurationData>
   </Configuration>
</Extension>

If no Configuration element is present for an extension entry in the configuration file, Reporting Services sets the value of the configuration parameter to an empty string.

System_CAPS_noteNote

The Configuration element is not passed into the configuration parameter. You should parse the inner XML of the Configuration element, if you want to process configuration data.
