Here is the situation-
I am pulling a bunch of data off of a remote server via an XML file encapsulated in a SOAP envelope. Getting the data and storing it in variables is absolutely no problem.
My problem is the ability to display this data that I have pulled from the server in a nice way. I tried using Crystal Reports, and found it to be a little more complicated then what I'm looking for.
Right now I'm playing around with a RTFBox, but that doesn't format stuff well (using tables at least). An ideal solution would to display the data in an HTML file within my application. However, I need to stay away from some of the limitations most web browsers set (lack of automated printing)
At some point I won't be displaying all of the reports and will want them sent right to the printer. Does anyone have a solution for me on how I can neatly display data that is generated dynamically?
