Native Blazor Report Viewer Commands Overview

The Native Blazor Report Viewer exposes commands that allow it to control its behavior from application code.

Executing A Command

To execute a command, it is required to first get a reference to the report viewer object using the @ref attribute. Then, the referenced property/field can be used to invoke the ExecuteCommand method. The ExecuteCommand method has the following signature:

void ExecuteCommand(string commandName, string commandValue(optional))

All commands, except for the Export command, require a single argument for this method, which is the commandName. The commandValue is used only by the Export command to specify the exporting format.

For example, the Refresh and Export commands of the current report can be triggered like this:

<button type="button" class="btn btn-light btn-sm" @onclick="RefreshReport">Refresh Report</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-light btn-sm" @onclick="Export">Export Report to PDF</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-light btn-sm" @onclick="UpdateToken">Update Authentication Token</button>


@code {
    public ReportViewer ViewerInstance { get; set; }

    void RefreshReport()
    void Export()
        ViewerInstance.ExecuteCommand("Export", "PDF");

    void SetToken()
        ViewerInstance.ExecuteCommand("SetAuthenticationToken", "SAMPLE_TOKEN");
