SubreportBase.ReportSource Property

Specifies an XtraReport object to be included as a subreport.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.UI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v18.2.dll


public XtraReport ReportSource { get; set; }
Public Property ReportSource As XtraReport

Property Value

Type Description

An XtraReport object to be included.


At design time, to be able to preview the report, rebuild the application before setting the ReportSource property.

Instead of assigning an XtraReport instance to the ReportSource property, you can assign an URL of a report definition file (.REPX) to the XRSubreport.ReportSourceUrl property.


This example illustrates the use of the XRSubreport control at runtime.

Not that at runtime, you can also assign a subreport by handling the XRControl.BeforePrint event of the XRSubreport control and setting its SubreportBase.ReportSource property.

using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
// ...

private void xrSubreport1_BeforePrint(object sender, System.Drawing.Printing.PrintEventArgs e) {
    ((XRSubreport)sender).ReportSource = new WindowsFormsApplication1.Reports.XtraReport3();

The following example demonstrates how to create a XRSubreport control and adjust some of its main properties (e.g. SubreportBase.ReportSource). This example assumes that an XtraReport object passed as a parameter to the CreateCompositeReport method, has already been created in the current project.

using System.Drawing;
using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
// ...

public XtraReport CreateCompositeReport(XtraReport detailReport) {
    // Create a report.
    XtraReport mainReport = new XtraReport();

    // Create a subreport.
    XRSubreport subreport = new XRSubreport();

    // Create a detail band and add it to the main report.
    DetailBand detailBand = new DetailBand();

    // Set the subreport's location.
    subreport.Location = new Point(110, 100);

    // Specify a detail report as a report source for the subreport.
    subreport.ReportSource = detailReport;

    // Add the subreport to the detail band.

    return mainReport;
