You can use the RegisterExtension property to serialize custom report parameters along with a report’s definition.

To provide parameters of custom types to your report, you should create a custom report design extension inherited from the ReportDesignExtension class.

Then, register the extension (using the RegisterExtension method) and associate the report with the custom extension (using the ReportDesignExtension.AssociateReportWithExtension method).

See the following tutorials to learn how to register custom parameter types in reporting applications created for different platforms:
