Has anyone had any success in creating a COM-callable wrapper for the SSRS 2005 ReportViewer Winforms control? Has Microsoft already done this and I am simply not aware of it? (I need to host SSRS 2005 reports in a VB6 app.)

TIA,

Re: COM-callable wrapper for ReportViewer control....
All--
I managed to create a custom COM-callable wrapper for the SSRS 2005 ReportViewer (WinForms) control which, in effect, turns the ReportViewer component into an ActiveX control. I have embedded it in a VB6 app and it is functional. I have implemented most (but not all) functionality, but am still having minor problems with exposing the control's font properties to COM. Otherwise, I am very pleased with the results.
