hello, when writing reports what is the better option in regards to optimization time and space to run reports - use rdlc hardcoded captions or labels?

    Time is probably the same. Data transfers differs, because labels have to be transferred. But any hardcoded part is wrong approach.

    The short answer to most questions of this nature is "it depends". Captions are sent per dataset row, but labels only once. Therefore the advantage of labels increases as the number of captions and dataset rows increases.

    There are no bugs - only undocumented features.

    Similar. Likely not much difference in a small report with few captions and\or rows. But could be more pronounced in larger reports.

    There can also be other considerations. Such as how they can then be modified. And who needs that access. Putting them in the layout makes it easy for end-users to modify thru custom layouts. But also loses some advantages of being in the dataset such as multi-language etc.
