Report Viewer and Zone Tabs
Jan 16 2009 at 5:32 PM
First, I want to say thanks for an excellent web part! It was simple to install and activate. However, I am having a problem adding Report Viewer web parts to the tabs. Specifically, when modifying the Zone Tab web part, I click the check-box under my Report Viewer web part for a particular tab and click Apply/Save, and the box simply becomes un-checked. I have tried both a connected Report Viewer (i.e. connected to a Report Explorer), and a standalone one. Is this web part simply incompatible with the Zone Tabs?

Okay, figured this one out. I had two report viewers on the page, and it turns out there's a bug in SharePoint that does not save the Title property for either the Report Viewer or the Report Explorer web parts. Since the Title property appears to be used by the Zone Tab web part to associate the child web parts to the individual tabs, this was causing a problem (since I had two web parts with the same title - 'Report Viewer', even though I had renamed them). Ultimately, my solution (unfortunately) was just to remove the second report viewer from the page.

You could rename your web parts that you place on the page. For example, under Appearance --> Title, just change the Title for each web part.
For example, Report Viewer 1 and Report Viewer 2.
Hope this helps. Aaron
