Crystal Reports Viewer + progress of report generation

P: n/a
Is there any way to get the status of a report being generated by the
crystal reports viewer control? I have a report that takes up to 10 minutes
to run and it looks like it's just jamed while this happens... I'd like to
build a status window to show the progress as a percentage or something, but
of would you get this information out of crystal? I remember an older
version could do this, can the new one? if so how? thanks

Hi Brian,

Very interesting question, and if you get an answer, please pass it along to
me.

I assume you are loading a report document object into the viewer. The
report document object has a wealth of objects in its object model, among
which are load(), isloaded(). I don't know if looking further into either
of these would help.

I recommend you get in touch with Brian Bischof, who wrote 'crystal reports
..net programming' (available on amazon), the best book on using the crystal
object model that I know of. The book itself, which I have, does not go
into this, so far as I remember, but if anyone can figure it out, Brian can.

HTH,

Bernie Yaeger
