Custom Report Object To Render Vector Image

Post Author: RSlaughter

CA Forum: .NET

Hi, I'm using the version of Crystal Reports that ships with Visual Studio .Net 2003 (Maintaining a legacy app) and have come across a problem where I need a way to convert data that is stored as text into a set of vectors which are then used to draw an image. Is there any way to achieve this, i.e. by creating a custom component of some sort that can then be used in the report, and if so how?I've failed thus far to find any information at all on the subject.Thanks,RSlaughter

    That sounds like a job for User-Defined Function Library (UFL) - it's a COM-based interface that allows you to create your own Crystal functions.

    Since it's COM based, I think for VS 2003 you had to write them in COM, e.g.., VB6.

    With CR for VS 2005, wrappers were supplied that allowed you to write them in .NET using COM-Interop.

    Sincerely,
