I'm very excited to announce that I finished the Crystal Reports .NET
2005/2008 book this week. I have TONS of great new features in it too. Check out what you get:
 
  • Create reports in minutes using SmartTasks. 
  • Integrate reports into ASP.NET and Windows applications.
  • Copy and paste code listings into your project using either VB.NET or C#.
  • Connect to ADO.NET, ODBC, OLE DB, LINQ, XML and object collections.
  • "Best of the Forum" sections give you the best questions and answers posted to the book's online forum. Learn what real life problems people have and how to solve them.

You also learn how to use today's most advanced technology in your reports:

  • Display reports on any mobile device using Web Parts.
  • Inject javascript into report object tags for a rich web experience.
  • Create add-ins that appear on the Crystal Reports 2008 menu bar.
  • Use ClickOnce deployment to distribute your reporting solutions over the web.
  • Write User Function Libraries (UFLs) that integrate business logic into your reports.

It is currently being printed and will be shipped out of Amazon.com (or your favorite bookstore) starting November 1st. You can pre-order it here:  Crystal Reports Book

Want to learn CR.NET 2005/2008 right now? I'm uploading the chapters to my Members Only section of the website over the next week. This is a blog format of the book where you can read all my books online and post questions about anything you are confused about. You get one-on-one access to have me help you with any area you are having trouble with. You can sign up for online access here: http://members.crystalreportsbook.com/
 
I think that the CR.NET 2005/2008 book is the best resource for programmers available, and you can only get it here. Check it out!
 
Brian

Dear Brian,
I am having the following requirements for my requirements in my C#.net windows application.

The First thing is, I have two forms One Form contains Crystal report viewer and the another form contains the customization fields of the crystal reports. this form contains report title text box,report sub title text box. whenever the user wants to change the report title, he just entered the title of the corresponding text box and then he press the ok button the changes should be occurred in the report viewer form. This is my requirement.
Please clarify my doubt in cross tab expert. shall we add more than one report data at run time. Kindly solve my issue.

Cheers
