IWebDocumentViewerReportResolver Interface

If implemented, resolves reports to display in the Web Document Viewer by their unique names.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.Web.WebDocumentViewer

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v19.1.Web.dll


public interface IWebDocumentViewerReportResolver
Public Interface IWebDocumentViewerReportResolver


The default report resolver tries to load a report from a report storage based on the report's unique name.

To provide a custom report resolver, create a class that implements the IWebDocumentViewerReportResolver interface.

The following example demonstrates how to resolve a report based on its name or type name if the report with this name does not exist.

using DevExpress.XtraReports.Web.WebDocumentViewer;
using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
// ...

public class CustomWebDocumentViewerReportResolver : IWebDocumentViewerReportResolver {
    public CustomWebDocumentViewerReportResolver() { }

    public XtraReport Resolve(string reportUniqueName) {
        switch (reportUniqueName) {
            case "Report1":
                return new XtraReport1();
            case "Report2":
                return new XtraReport2();
                // Try to create a report using the fully qualified type name.
                Type t = Type.GetType(reportUniqueName);
                return typeof(XtraReport).IsAssignableFrom(t) ?
                    (XtraReport)Activator.CreateInstance(t) :                

Then, register your custom report resolver at the application's startup.

  • ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC

    using DevExpress.XtraReports.Web.WebDocumentViewer;
    void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) {
        DefaultWebDocumentViewerContainer.Register<IWebDocumentViewerReportResolver, CustomWebDocumentViewerReportResolver>();
  • ASP.NET Core

    using DevExpress.XtraReports.Web.WebDocumentViewer;
    public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services) {
        // ...
        services.AddSingleton<IWebDocumentViewerReportResolver, CustomWebDocumentViewerReportResolver>();
