In vb6 I was able to change the textobject value how do u do it in vb.net

this is what I have


Dim myreport As ReportDocument
myreport= New CrystalReport1
myreport.Load("..\CrystalReport1.rpt")


I tried

Dim textobject As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject
textobject = report1.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects.Item("Text1")


and if I look at the variable textobject it seems to pull in the currecnt value, but I can't figure out how to change it

I even did

textobject = report1.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects.Item("Text1")
textobject.tet = "Hello"

and nothing happened

any ideas??

no that doesn't work.

When I put my cursor over that line it says

'Property item is read-only'

 I was able to do it with vb6 what is the equivulent in vb.net

also note that this works

I got this off of a old forum here:


Dim myReport As CrystalReport1
myReport = New CrystalReport1
Dim myTextObject As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject
myTextObject = myReport.Section1.ReportObjects.Item("Text1")
myTextObject.Text = "New Text"
CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = myReport


this works great but not using

Dim myreport As ReportDocument

and see I need this because I am using

myreport.Load("..\CrystalReport1.rpt")


so I need to have
Dim myreport As ReportDocument

I am very familiar with the CrystalReport1 method because that is the RDC.  What methodolgy is the other.  It may be that in VB.Net you don't have permissions for that.

Did you try

report1.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects.Item("Text1") = "Hello"
