This is the feature of the crystal report to incorporate and keep the formating.

If you wish just to print you can just set the report to be continuous and get the user to print from the printer button on the browser.

The problem with this is the clients machine may have 800x600 or 1024x768 so formatting goes out of the window.

Another solution i use is allow the user to load the report into adobe through the web browser which, keeps it all web based (but obviously they need adobe installed on the client), if you want to know how to do this just ask.

Which version of Crystal are you using and what Viewer are you using to publish the report?

Thanks!

I am using crystal 9 in an ASP.NET environment.
I have the full version and prefer to build the reports independently of the application. Save the report and then use the code to load the report.

CrystalReportViewer in .Net creates a DHTML based page. As i explained before to print I always use Adobe Acrobat Reader (which is free and has a web plug in).

Here is a chunck of code that does the job in .net
The SetDatabase(myreport), SetParmaeters(myreport) & SetSelectionFourmula(myreport) are all procedures to configure the reports settings


If Not Session("ReportLoc") Is Nothing Then
            Dim FileName As String
            Dim ExportPath As String
            Dim dfdOptions As DiskFileDestinationOptions
            Dim ExportOpts As ExportOptions
            Dim myreport As New ReportDocument()
            If Not Session("ReportLoc") Is Nothing Then
                FileName = Session("ReportLoc")
                ' FileName = FileName.Replace("Crystal_Reports", "Adobe_Reports")
                If viewstate("ReportDoc") Is Nothing Then
                    viewstate.Add("ReportDoc", myreport)
                    myreport.Load(FileName)
                    SetDatabase(myreport)
                    SetParmaeters(myreport)
                    SetSelectionFourmula(myreport)
                    ExportPath = (Server.MapPath("AdobePrint.aspx").Replace("AdobeP rint.aspx", "")) & "temp\" & Session.SessionID.ToString & ".pdf"
                    dfdOptions = New DiskFileDestinationOptions()
                    dfdOptions.DiskFileName = ExportPath
                    ExportOpts = myreport.ExportOptions
                    With ExportOpts
                        .DestinationOptions = dfdOptions
                        .ExportDestinationType = .ExportDestinationType.DiskFile
                        .ExportFormatType = .ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat
                    End With
                    myreport.Export()
                    With Response
                        .ClearContent()
                        .ClearHeaders()
                        .ContentType = "application/pdf"
                        .WriteFile(ExportPath)
                        .Flush()
                        .Close()
                    End With
                    System.IO.File.Delete(ExportPath)
                    Session.Remove("ReportLoc")
                End If
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

I am using crystal reports 9. You might be knowing purpose of web reports. I don't want to load any particular s/w on user machine. i want to give option to print from browser itself.
If not in crystal reports can we do that in SQL reports?

Thanks,
Kosaraju.

Unfortunately i don't really know of any other way. Their is an axtivex viewer but that also requires a small based install.

You could try putting a print button associated with some javascript to call the ie/netscape/whataver's print. You would first have to hide the crystal toolbar and also make the page print in one continuous web generated page.

Thats all the help i can give.

Have you looked at version 10 of crystal? It is supposed to have a much more improved DHTML Viewer, i'm awaiting my copy to see if it is worth upgrading to.

Hi,Namshub,
It is several months gone, do you upgrade your copy to version 10 of crystal reports? It is said this copy can print web report directly, do you know the simple way to implement directly printing?
