Locating a control in your report design in Visual Studio

You are developing a report in SSRS and you are getting some warning or error that a specific control has an issue with its expression.

Of course you have to locate the specified control to fix it, but, if you have lots of controls in your design finding it directly in the design can be very difficult.

There is one easy way: in the Properties window (bring it up by Ctrl + W, P) you can select the item, you want to view the properties for, by using the comboBox inside the window, listing all the controls - so just select the control you need; this is not like in AX where you (only) see the properties of the selected control in the form.

Note: this is of course a basic item to a Visual Studio developer, still it can be something new for today for an AX developer
