Server Event: Remove blank filters from report

Attach this server event to a report to automatically remove any blank filters upon execution. Since the default behavior for blank filters is to return an empty set of data (causing No Data Qualified), this server event allows users to leave filters blank without affecting the report data.


  • WebReports.Api.Reports


// get report filters
ReportFilterCollection filters = sessionInfo.Report.ExecFilters;

// loop through filters
for (int i = 0; i < filters.Count; i++)
Filter filter = filters[i];

// if filter is blank, remove it
if (filter.Value.Length == 0)

// continue execution
return null;
