Loading Report Image

I need to show a progress bar whenever the crystalReportViewer is trying to render content on the aspx page. I am dealing with reports that are taking a very long time to load. I tried looking into using the UpdatePanel and the UpdateProgress controls but it does not work. On searching, found out that the CrystalReportViewer does not work very well with Ajax controls. Any help would be highly appreciated.

I am using CrystalReports XI R2

Thanks

    XI R2 does not have any progress indicator.

    Only option is to upgrade to CR 2008, it has a Progress indicator and allows you to modify the look and feel of the animation.

    We introduced a process indicator for the CrystalReportViewer (web) in Crystal Reports 2008. Unfortunately there isn't anything for XI R2 or earlier.

    Check this link for some more info, https://boc.sdn.sap.com/node/8035. Look for processingIndicatorDelay and processingIndicatorText.

    Unfortuntely it is not possible for us to upgrade to CR2008 at the present time as we already have a lot of investment in the current version that we are using.

    Can you advise if the CrystalReportsViewer in X1 R2 can be used within an Ajax updatePanel. If so , are there any examples that you can point out to me. Some of the threads that I came accross talk about the update panel but unfortunately have not been able to come across a good example.

    Thanks,
