It is possible. Anything that can host and iframe can embed a Power BI report.

Re: Is it possible to Embedded Powers BI Reports into a WinForms application?

That's good to know!

So basically it should work the same way as it is for web application, right?

I just need a WebBrowser control -> and load iframe in it, right?

If that's true, then I guess there is no need for a demo/sample specifically for Winforms (just mentioning that it is working the same way for Winforms while presenting it for web application should do the trick 🙂

 

BTW. great stuff on youtube about power bi - keep on the good work! 🙂

Hi!

 

How about this step for embedding Power BI into WinForms application? Is it possible to register WinForms app?

 

•Step 1: Register a web app with Azure AD. You need to register your web app with Azure Active Directory (AD) so that Azure AD can identify your application when you need to access Power BI reports.

BTW. here is a comment from @mrctito (which by some unclear reason is not available here...)

 

"it seems that webbrowser control does not support all scripts needed (..) would like to see an example of this with all the capabilities, like passing filters in URL"

 

Perhaps it would be possible to get some working example of Winforms with embedded Power BI report?

@mtmdbcs

I found that there is a winforms with power bi embedded sample in github.

 

I have not yet tried it, but here is the link:

Winforms sample on GitHub!

 

P.S. for those who tries this out - please put some comments (or send me a message) about what was your experience with this sample (it seems I'll give it a try only after 3-4 weeks, and will put my comments here afterwards)

Re: Is it possible to Embedded Powers BI Reports into a WinForms application?

just wanted to say, that I succesfully managed to implement power bi embeded in winform project - so, now I can say it works 🙂

(with Azure AD authentication in multi-tenant mode, with tech account that has power bi free subscription. So if anyone needs some help - let me know, perhaps I can help)
