My CRViewer on my form is a blank box
Posted on 2003-10-28
I am using CR 8.5 and VB 6.0. I have been writing an application for the last 7 months. About 3 months ago I put otgether the reporting section and all was happy. It has worked up until today. I sent the latest update to my boss and he said all the reports returned a gray screen. I tested it on mine and I got the same result.
I checked out the form where my CRviewer object resides and it was gone. Well, not gone, the CRviewer object is still there, it is just a blank box, kinda like a picture box. if I draw something over it, then delete that something the image remains, like when a window is busy and doesn't refresh.
Where did my CRViewer go? I haven't touched any references or components related to Crystal reports in a long time. I readded the crviewer.dll component to the project, but still get the same blank box. I even made a new project, but the CRViewer is a blank box there too.
Has anyone seen this before? I checked out the CR web site, but couldn't find anythig in the knowledge base. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
