In this, Part 2 of the series, I showed you how we are displaying the first report on a web page. We also explored new features including the improved Crystal viewer, adding a summary average, and some other features of interest to Crystal .NET programmers. We went over just a few of the new features that are available in the new version of Crystal .NET. Programmatically applying parameters and binding a report document to the viewer are similar to the original Crystal .NET.
In the next installment, I'll add a report that binds to a new ASP.NET 2.0 object. The sample application that this links to includes one simple report that uses a traditional OLE DB connection to a stored procedure on a SQL Server database. This is intended as a sample to show what's possible with the Crystal .NET shipping with Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1 Refresh. Happy reporting!
