print with crystal reports in dot.net

Guest

I would like to know how to print a crystal report that was generated in the
..NET framework using a Visual Basic.NET web application and/or a Visual
basic.NET windows application.

When crystal reports runs by itself, you can do a print preview to see what
the report will look like. I would like to know how to do this using crystal
reports that is embedded in the Visual Studio.net 1.1 professional and
enterprise architect versions.

Thanks!

keep in mind, wendy, that you will not be able to "edit with live data".
This is a limitation, and can only be overcome by purchasing Crystal Reports
developer edition (and also get the viewer control).

Sure, the webform thing is a nice workaround for looking at your reports
without having to run the whole darn application you are writing, but edit
functionality is still a design time thing only.

For $315, you can get the upgrade Crystal Reports XI Developer directly from
Business Objects, and it will give you everything you expect in a report
writer. It made my life a lot easier, especially with 30+ reports in my VB
app. It took too long to launch my app, then navigate to the reports
section, select parameters, etc......

If you have lots of reports in the future, it's worth the money. Oh yea,
VS.NET 2005 is way cool, and this functionality is included as the previous
post says.
