User modified reports and Viewer refresh - CR XI R2


Hi All,

I did a search and didn't find anything exactly on this subject.


I have a form that allows a user to modify a Report's field locations to fit a scanned document. The fields are known beforehand and are already on the report. What I have is a form with a viewer with the fields shown with sample data. I then have a .NET grid with each field listed. There are also location and size buttons to allow the field to be moved or sized at run time. The sizes/locations are then stored in a database table for actual report generation later.


1. The viewer does not update with the new locations and sizes.

2. When I select a field on the viewer and try to change the border to show that it is selected, the viewer doesn't show the borders.


1. What property or set of properties should I use either on the Viewer or on the Report to make the viewer show modifications?

2. How do I capture what field was selected and show that accordingly?

EDIT: I forgot to mention versions:

CR XI R2 SP2 or SP3 (I can't remember)

VB .NET 2005

Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista SP1, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2008
