Modifying Reports

Sep 25, 2012 at 8:12 PM

I have changed the card types list items to better fit our needs.  Upon doing so I noticed that the cards all turned white on the kanban board report.  I'm not the best at reporting services but is there a way I can change this to give them different colors on the report?

Thanks

Hi SpacemanSpiffed,

To extend the colors for additional card types, open the Sub-Reports (Kanban Board Sub Report 1.rdl to Kanban Board Sub Report 4.rdl) in SSRS Report Builder (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=6116). Open the View tab and make sure the option "Properties" is selected. Click the 3rd area in the report from the top (the area below the one containing the title). You should now see the properties for a rectangle (Rectangle 2). Go to the BackgroundColor property, click on the Dropdown and then select Expression. Here you find a Switch case construct where you can add more conditions and Colors for your custom card types.
