As mentioned in Part
1 of this series, DotNetNuke is a
great Open Source Portal tool that many in the ASP.NET world use. Please refer
1 for more information about DotNetNuke. In Part
2, we explored the DNN Data Access architecture for our application. Then,
we created our own DAL and BLL based on the DNN architecture. Finally, we
created the administrative interface to allow users to add and edit where
reports are located. The data entered from this interface is used in this part
of the series in helping to display a report’s parameters.
In Part 3, we will utilize a helper class (based on a
previous article of mine) to display reports that have been stored via the
Report Manager app. Then, the application will display the parameters for a
report and display the report. Part 3 specifically details how to display the
parameters of a crystal report.
I created this project using Visual Studio 2003,
DotNetNuke 3.1.1, SQL Server 2000, Crystal
Reports 10, and Windows XP SP2.
