    Resolved [RESOLVED] Can Report Viewer Be Used with Custom Data (no database)?

    Can I use the report designer to create reports just from static fields and static images on my form?
    Can it print the contents of a text (multi-line) box or RTF control?

    Generally speaking, a report uses a DataSet/DataTable as the data source. They are most commonly used with databases but it's completely up to you where you get the data from. I'm not sure whether other types are supported as data sources as I've never tried but, just as with complex data-binding, I would expect that the absolute minimum requirement would be an object that implements the IList or IListSource interface.
