[CLOSED] The function "addScript" causing the error "Syntax Error"

    Hello Daniil,

    - I have completed the tests (without an iframe for now) and I have good news.
    - Everything works as expected in all browsers tested(IE11,FF,Chrome).

    1. In debug mode inside VS 2012 the debugger stops code execution only once during the initial loading of the page. Selecting to continue allows the page to load as expected. Subsequent page reloads trigger the same behaviour (break once, select to continue, all goes well). So far, it seems that the theory that the debugger prematurely intervenes and complains about the syntax error before the anchor tag gets a chance to be replaced holds water.
    2. I deployed to production server and no error is raised in the browsers and the page behaves as designed including layouts etc.
    3. I made a little tweak that helped make the initial loading of the page smoother: I do not assign a report path to the report viewer inside its markup tag. I populate the ReportPath property of the Report Viewer in the page's Page_Load event. This causes the report to be loaded a bit later in the page lifecycle when all the scripts had a chance to load properly.

    - I am attaching a sample page for future reference.
    - The sample also demonstrates how to reload a report via a Direct Method passing user defined parameters. (The actual code that passes parameters to the report is outside the scope of this sample).

    <%@ Page Language="C#" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91" Namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" TagPrefix="rsweb" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head runat="server"> 
    <!--Chrome/FF fix for Report Viewer -->
        overflow: visible !important;
     <script runat="server">
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
          // check both Ext.Net and ASP.Net for initial loading status in ordr to be on the safe side
          if (!X.IsAjaxRequest && !Page.IsPostBack)
            //Prepare Report
              this.RptViewer1.ServerReport.ReportPath ="\Reports\test";
            //load report
        public void Reload_Report(string some_parameter)
          // pass parameters to report through ReportViewer.ServerReport.SetParameters method
          //reload happens in callback handler of Direct Method (client-side)
     <script type="text/javascript">
    function reload_rpt() {
      //sample user parameter to pass to report
      var rpt_id = App.txt_rpt_id.value;
      App.direct.Reload_Report(rpt_id,  {
          success: function () {
            //refresh report using ReportViewers client JS library. This is ReportViewer's JS library, not Ext JS.
            var viewer = $find("RptViewer1");
            if (!viewer.get_isLoading())
           //end of Report Viewer JS library code
          eventMask: { showMask: true, msg: "Please wait..." },
          failure: function (errorMsg) { Ext.Msg.alert("Problem", errorMsg); }

    I hope that this helps clarify things.

    You can close the thread if you like. I would also like to test the iframe scenario but I am currently under a deadline so that will have to wait.


    P.S. I can send you the URL of a test production server plus relevant source code files in order to see the user experience client-side and possibly debug the Server Response and also check if any errors are raised in the browsers' JS execution. If you think that such a thing would be helpful please send an e-mail address to my e-mail so i can forward you the relevant information.

    Thank you for sharing all the details! And it is great to hear all is working for you.

    As for sending the files via email, we would really prefer to keep all the discussion publicly if possible. If it is absolutely not possible to keep it public, then we could consider email. Well, if all works for you, then, personally, I am okay just to close the thread right away. If any the problem re-appear or something else, you can post a follow-up or create a new thread referencing the current one and we'll investigate.
