Server Report icons

edited September 2010 in Server

A customer has asked us if the icons that appear in the report viewer in a
browser can be changed? Apparently they get confused by the Print button
going to a PDF file (not something I agree with but I said I would ask).

From what I understand, these icons are embedded into the WebTier DLL when
it is compiled, presumably using the images in the rsWebViewerImages.res
resource file.

My questions are:

1. Would updating this res file and rebuilding the WebTier result in the new
icon being used?
2. Are there any plans to allow the user to customise the icons that appear
in the web report viewer?

    1. Modify the .res file and rebuild your Webtier.
    2. Clear the Cache\Viewer directory on your web server - for example,
    3. The WebTier will regenerate the viewer files when it sees the
    cache\viewer folder is empty.
