Type: Bug Report
An invalid Report Parameter breaks the design-time rendering of items that don't depend on this parameter in the Web Report Designer
In our report, we programmatically create the data sources available to the user. These data sources have a connection string that just reads "UNAVAILABLE". Then, when the report is viewed, I swap out the connection strings on the server-side.
This works fine for viewing reports, and it also is fine if I'm only using tables in the designer. However, if I try to use a PictureBox in the designer, I get an error that the PictureBox can't be displayed. It still works when I preview the report, but the editor ends up in a broken state.
From my debugging, it looks like rendering the PictureBox in the designer is trying to connect to the various data sources defined for the report. I don't understand why, since it's just a URL for an image.

Hi Josh,

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with the Web Report Designer. 

Is it possible to send us a video that demonstrates the problem and the console of the browser, so we know what the exact error is? It will also help us a lot if you can send us a sample runnable project that reproduces the issue. You may use the AdventureWorks database.

I will be looking forward to receiving an update from you.
