Default date ranges

I need to have a "From" and a "To" date range on my report as input parameters. How can I drop a calendar control on my report at design time? Or, If I have to make them as text input boxes, how do I put javascript as client side input validation. I have no problem to write javascript, but where do I put it? I don't know how I can modify the rdl file.

I am interested in this as well. I am designing a matrix of linked reports, and it is desirable to let the user enter a from and to date range to obtain the data within that range. Please advise the best method if this is possible, thank you.

to edit the RDL file you can right click on the report and select view code. This should bring up the XML file....

If you are simply asking to add these parameters to a report, you can go to edit your datasource and add them to the parameters tab.

Also, If you are in 'Layout' mode you can check the properties window, change it from 'Body' to 'Report' then click the elipse (...) next to parameters and select more options for your parameters. For a lot of my reports I need them to have a default of the previous day, so I check 'Non-Queried' next to the 'From Date' parameter and enter this function for the date. {=datetime.today.addddays(-1).tostring("mm/dd/yy")}

Hope this helps!
