Hi All,

I am using RDC of Crystal 10.
When I preview my report it gives me an error "The control is busy downloading data".
I am using the ViewReport method. How I can resolve this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What are you trying to do when you get the error?

Crystal is downloading data and formatting the report and build it.

Hi mlmcc,

Actually I am using VFP 8 to call the Crystal 10.

In the Init() event of the form I could like this:

lparameters toCRReport, tCaption
with ThisForm
      .Caption = tCaption
                .WindowState= 2
      with .OlecontrolCRView
                                .olecontrolCRView.Top = 0
            .olecontrolCRView.Left = 0
            .olecontrolCRView.Width = .Width
            .olecontrolCRView.Height = .Height
            .ReportSource = toCRReport

The above coding will set the window to maximize during preview.
And the CRViewer control will also resize according to VFP form size.

It gives you the error even if you just try to view the report?  You're not clicking on anything?
