I like to generate a Crystal Report from my VB.NET code.
This is how I would like to work:
1) Fill up a dataset with the data to be shown in the report. It contains
all the fields defined on the report.
2) Export this datase as an xml file to XmlFilePath
3) Making a pdf file and show it in IE by getting the report definition from
a report server and by calling it by using an URL with parameters like http://MyReportsServer/Filename...?....h=XmlFilePath&
In order to make it work I have to define in my report definition the data
source as "=parameters!FilePath.value"
So what I'm looking for is a way to change the report data source to a
function that get's the FilePath parameter from the URL I send to the report
server instead of a connection to a view or table in the database.
I did this before with Windows reports, how is this done with Crystal Reports?
