Changing fonts during runtime - Crystal Reports


I use visual basic .net 2003 and Crystal Reports for creating win-reports.
My question is if there is any possibility to set font properties (type,
color and size) of a text control or data field during runtime.
To be more accurate, I know I can set these settings by formula (next to
each property in design time), but I would like to let the user choose what
font settings he would like to use. I allow the user to set there properties
in my application and save it to a database (MDB), but I don't find the way
to recall these settings and affect the fonts in the report during runtime.

Any help will be usefull.
Tom Rahav.

Hi Tom,

According to your description, you're trying to change fonts of Crystal
Reports during runtime. However, currently the Crystal Report is not
supported by Microsoft. Here is a KB article which provides information on
the licensing and support on Crystal Report.


We can also wait here to see if any community member has some idea on this.
