Hi,

i have a crystal report viewer that is working fine.

My problem is that some time the report takes time to build and therefore it the report viewer is blank until this happens.

How can i have a progress bar, or something like it, on the form indicating what is actually happening.

CR doesn't trigger events that would allow you to mark the progress!

You can just forget it. You make a simple method call and the report starts calculating and you can do nothing until it is ready
