Help with print progress in Crystal Reports 2008 and the .NET viewer/API

First, I'd like to find out if there is a way to have the CrystalReportsViewer to show the progress of how many records have been read and how many have been placed on the report as the old viewer in 8.5.

Another issue I have is finding out how many records have been exported after the report has been created. The ReportDocument::Rows::Count doesn't return the number of rows that were exported. I'd like to get this for internal reporting. The 8.5 API had a way to get this value.

Another issue I have with the viewer is that in 8.5, you could stop processing from the viewer. Did this get removed in 2008?

    As per the Rules of Engagement, one question per thread please.

    First, I'd like to find out if there is a way to have the CrystalReportsViewer to show the progress of how many records have been read and how many have been placed on the report as the old viewer in 8.5.

    - No there is not. If this is of any importance, please consider adding this to the SAP Idea Place, so it can be considered for a future version of CR. If you do add this to the Idea place, I'll tweet it to get as many "up" votes as possible.

    Another issue I have is finding out how many records have been exported after the report has been created. The ReportDocument::Rows::Count doesn't return the number of rows that were exported. I'd like to get this for internal reporting. The 8.5 API had a way to get this value.

    - I just tested this with:

    x = crReportDocument.Rows.Count()

    MessageBox.Show(x)

    and consistently got the correct number of rows(?).

    When you say: "Count doesn't return the number of rows that were exported", what do you get returned?

    Another issue I have with the viewer is that in 8.5, you could stop processing from the viewer. Did this get removed in 2008?

    - Yes. Again, SAP Idea Place.
