URL passed settings in Reporting Services

Thought I'd put a note on how to remove the toolbar using the URL as I didn't find this clear on the net. Tried it and it didn't work. That's because I was using the Reporting Manager URL rather than the Reporting Server URL.

Note:
  1. Change "<your_reportserver>" to the name of your Reporting Server
  2. Change "%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me" to the name and folder of your report.

To hide all except the report (default is True)
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rc:Toolbar=False


To hide just the parameters (default is True)
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rc:Parameters=False


To change the Rendering modes (defaults to HTML4.0)
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rs:Format=XML

Where XML can be any of the following: HTML3.2, HTML4.0, MHTML, IMAGE, EXCEL, WORD, CSV, PDF, XML, defaults to HTML4.0

So to export to PDF in landscape
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rs:Format=PDF&rc:PageWidth=11in&rc:PageHeight=8.5in


Or a clean export to PDF with minimal margins
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rs:Format=PDF&rc:MarginTop=0.1in&rc:MarginRight=0.1in&rc:MarginBottom=0.1in&rc:MarginLeft=0.1in

Further rendering options: MS Reporting Services Device Information Settings

To specify the zoom configuration (defaults to 100%)
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rc:Zoom=100%

Note: Where 100% can be page width in percent or whole page.

To show/hide the document map (default is true)
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rc:DocMap=True


Specify a page (defaults to 1)
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rc:Section=False


Jump to a Bookmark
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rc:BookMarkID=1


Provide search criteria and find the first instance
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rc:FindString=foo

Note: I have no idea what this is for.

Render a snapshot
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rs:Snapshot=2004-03-30T15:45:02


Use a specific stylesheet (handy for customizing toolbars)
http://<your_reportserver>/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?%2fMYREPORTS%2fDemos%2fRB+Report+for+Me&rs:Command=Render
&rc:Stylesheet=Htmlviewer_copy.css


Customize the Toolbar (Advanced)
To enter custom code for a report, view the report properties, the first field in Report Builder or Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) is "Code". Click on the browse button next to it to edit.

Issues encountered
Note there appears to be an issue with regards to rendering. An updated and deployed report on the same day will render fine in a webbrowser but when exported to PDF format, it will retain the previously deployed report settings (header&footer). Resolved this by clearing my web-browser's temporary files. Do we instruct all users viewing the reports to do this? When does this report automatically expire?

Reminder on Paper Sizes
A4 = 8.27in (width) × 11.69in (height)
Letter = 8.5in (width) x 11in (height)
Switch width's for height to convert these to landscape.
