Opening a report through a controller

A controller plays a key role in defining the entire report life cycle. It extends the SrsReportRunController base class. A controller class is used to control the execution of a report and preprocessing of data in a report. In Dynamics AX 2012 R3, the SSRS reporting framework uses this class to modify and call the report dialogs and pre/post processing the given parameters.

This recipe will be the first step in using the controller and will explain how a report can be invoked from a controller class. The How it works... section of this recipe will give you a detailed picture of the report programming model, which will help you understand the other recipes discussed in this chapter.
