Visual Studio/Report Builder: Shortcut To Expression Window

11 Oct

When designing RDLC reports with Visual Studio or Report Builder how many times have you wished that you had a keyboard shortcut to get to the expression window? Well, I have wished it a lot of times! Then one day I went to a reporting class holdy by the guru Claus Lundstrøm and gave us a lot of useful tips. One among them was this.
Actually there isn’t a real shortcut to achieve this but there exists a work around shortcut. The principle is to use the same shortcut that corresponds to a right-click and then press the letter for expression. This works for both Report Builder and Visual Studio.

Mark your textbox, press SHIFT + F10 and then E, voila! now you have your expression window available.
