About

Gets or sets the value enabling the Settings button on the Izenda Reports toolbar. The settings button launches the settings page, which allows for a GUI-oriented interface for modifying various common settings. However, we highly recommend either removing the settings page entirely, or implementing a custom settings page (example in the third code sample), and using the InitializeReporting() method to perform your initialization.

Default Value: True

  public static void InitializeReporting() {
    //Check to see if we've already initialized.
    if (HttpContext.Current.Session == null || HttpContext.Current.Session["ReportingInitialized"] != null)
      return;
    AdHocSettings.LicenseKey = "INSERT_LICENSE_KEY_HERE";
    //Creates a connection to Microsoft SQL Server

    AdHocSettings.ShowSettingsButton = true; //the relevant setting
