Description

In Sequel Server Reporting Services 2008 R2 there is no functionality to round the corner of text box controls. This would save a lot of time if added as the only work round I know of is producing rounded images and using these as content of the text box to give the rounded effect.

I apologize!!! I posted a link to the workarounds tab and it was for an entirely different issue!!

Again, my apologies!!

This seems like the most basic functionality for SSRS, yet it has been completely ignored by Microsoft with every new version of SSRS. The creating an image/set as background workaround is unnecessary work that can be solved by just adding a rounded corner box. There are third party tools that have this functionality...why does Microsoft choose to not add such a simple enhancement??
