parameters in viewer then PDF

Visual Studio 2012 with CRforVS 13.0.5

I have my C# displaying the report in the browser in PDF format when there are no parameters, or when all parameters are passed.

(System.IO.MemoryStream)theReport.ExportToStream(CrystalDecisions.Shared.ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat);

If the user needs to be prompted to enter data into a parameter, then the viewer is displayed..

CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = reportPath;

The user enters the parameters, and the report is displayed in the viewer, they can then print or export to PDF..

I was wondering if it is even possible to have the viewer used for the parameter entry, then instead of displaying in the viewer, having the report ExportToStream and display in PDF format..

    Hello Shannon

    Good question and one asked before 😊

    Unfortunately, the parameter screen is controlled by the viewer and there is no API that will launch it without the viewer. E.g.; your only option is to create your own parameter screen, capture the user input and pass that to the report engine.

    BTW., this would make a great addition to the SAP Idea Place. If you do add it, let me know and I'll vote it up. I'll also tweet it. The more votes, the better the chance of getting this into the product in a subsequent SP or version.
