Viewing Reports over the Web

This chapter introduces programmatic access to viewing reports over the Web through the Crystal Enterprise SDKs. It is important to note that these viewers and the means to programmatically access them have been made consistent across the Business Objects Crystal product lineincluding Crystal Reports, Crystal Enterprise Embedded, and Crystal Enterprise Professional and Premium editions. This consistency across products enables a seamless and rapid migration through the different versions of the Crystal product suite as developers application requirements grow. These SDKs are provided in Java, .NET, and COM flavors and provide rich functionality that can be integrated into both intranet and extranet targeted applications.

This chapter introduces the different Crystal Report viewer components and explains how to set them up for inclusion in your custom applications. The following topics are covered:

  • Introduction to the Crystal Report viewers
  • Understanding the report source
  • Implementing the Page viewer and toolbar buttons
  • Implementing the Part viewer
  • Implementing the Interactive viewer and toolbar buttons
  • Implementing the Grid viewer and toolbar buttons
