Change Indicator Icons and Indicator Sets (Report Builder and SSRS)

Reporting Services provides preconfigured indicators sets, which might not always depict your data effectively and work well in the delivered report. This topic provides procedures to change the appearance of indicator icons and change the indicator sets to include different, more, or fewer indicator icons.

Options such as colors can be set by using expressions. For more information, see Expressions (Report Builder and SSRS).

Note Note

You can create and modify report definitions (.rdl) in Report Builder and in Report Designer in SQL Server Data Tools. Each authoring environment provides different ways to create, open, and save reports and related items. For more information, see Designing Reports in Report Designer and Report Builder (SSRS) on the Web at microsoft.com.
