ActiveReports provides a number of ways to view your report output. You have an option of previewing the report as you create it in a Visual Studio project at design time.

Previewing Reports at Design Time

ActiveReports makes it easy for you to preview your report while you are still creating it. Click the Preview tab at the bottom of the designer and see the output as it appears in a viewer. See Designer Tabs for further information.

With the in-built Viewers for Windows Forms, Web and Silverlight, you can view your report in any of these platforms as well in a separate viewer control. The following topics introduce all the available report viewing options.
