Report controls can either display static information or dynamic data fetched from the bound database.

Data-bound controls are indicated by a yellow database icon in their top-right corner, both in the Design Panel and Report Explorer.

To embed dynamic information to a report, if this information is contained in the report's data source, this can easily be done using one of the following approaches.

After a control is bound to data, you may wish to employ additional features, which are listed in the final section of this document.
