Crystal Reports and Parameters

I have the following scenario.
I have some Crystal Reports that were created outside
the .NET Visual Studio. These reports were designed to
enter date parameters.
I have developed a ASP.NET app to display these reports.
I am succesfull when there is no parameters.

But, Is there a function in .NET to automatically display
the Crystal Report Paramenter Form?

If I am not mistaken, you need to create your own Parameter Form.

What I am trying to accomplish is to be able to display
CR reports that developers had created in the Crystal
Reports software and not via the .NET Visual Studio.
If these existing reports does not contain parameters
then I can display the report on the web; otherwise, it
is expecting parameters. These parameters were created
inside the .rpt file.

My objective is to access the .rpt, open it and print
the report. If there are pre-define variables in the CR
that the user needs to specified via the CR, I should be
able to access via ASP.NEt the CR form's parameter before
printing.

Is this possible without writting again code since the
CR.rpt contains those attributes?

I believe the CR .NET object should be able to retrieve a list of
parameters for the report... once you have the list, you'll have to write
your own code to display the list to the user and accept user input.

So I believe you need to write code.
