i am using CR.NET with VS.NET 2003 (VB.NET). i have more that 100+ reports in my project. all r working fine.
The only problem i m facing is tooltip. How can i disable tool tip from code. i dont want to change it from designer cause it takes 2-3 days to set tooltip for all objects in all reports.

Thanks in anticipation.

How to disable Tool Tips when viewing a report at runtime in the CR Viewer:

The code in the above example is for CR8.5 but it's using RDC so it'll work with CR.Net as well.

in CR.NET report object does not have conditionFormula.

For I = 1 To Report.Sections.Count
' Loop through all the sections in the report
For X = 1 To Report.Sections(I).ReportObjects.Count

' Loop through all the ReportObjects in each section
If Report.Sections(I).ReportObjects.Item(X).Kind = crFieldObject Or crTextObject Then
Report.Sections(I).ReportObjects.Item(X).ConditionFormula(crToolTipTextConditionFormulaType) = "Chr(9)"

End If

Next X

Next I

If you dont see conditionformula that means you are not using RDC. Either get the licenses for it or you wont be able to do this with the standalone .net application

What do you mean there's no condition formula?

Oops - stale browser.  As Emre said - it's there if you're using the RDC model.  This shouldn't be a license issue if you have Visual Studio...

You may also find that doing this slows down the presentation of reports to the user.
