Browser Support for ReportViewer Web Server Controls
The ReportViewer Web server control is used to embed report functionality in an ASP.NET Web application. The type of browser used to view the application determines the kind of functionality that you can provide in a report. Use the table provided in this topic to find out which of the supported browsers are subject to report functionality restrictions.
Because report definitions support a free-form layout, some reports might include a combination of items that do not work as expected in all supported browsers. Before deploying a report, always test it in the browsers you plan to support.
You must use a browser that has script support enabled. If the browser cannot run scripts, you cannot use interactive report features or view the report.
