This sample demonstrates using Win Viewer to load reports or to save reports to report document file (RDF).  The toolbar is customized to add Export and Save as RDF options.

When you run this sample, a Viewer control containing File and Help menu appears on the top. You can load any of the RDF files from RDFs folder using File > Open. An RDF file is a static copy of a report saved to the native Report Document Format. This can be loaded into the Viewer control without running it or accessing data. For more information, see Save and Load RDF Report Files. You can also choose to Export the report, Save the report as RDF, and Exit from the viewer.
