Hi Experts,
   
         I am trying to use Crystal Report in windows form in C#.
If I design everything at design time and then run the program then it is coming fine. But my requirment is to get the data at run time. In this case it is not giving any error, but not showing the report also. Repost viewer is blank.

Following is the snippet which, I am using.
              Here EstimatedHikeDetails  is report class.

               EstimatedHikeDetails rptEstimate = new EstimatedHikeDetails();
      SqlDataAdapter sqlAdapt = new SqlDataAdapter(" select * from estimatedresourcedetails ",sqlConn);
      DataSet dsNew = new DataSet();
      sqlAdapt.Fill(dsNew, "BU");
      sqlConn.Close();
      rptEstimate.SetDataSource(dsNew);
                  
      crystalReportViewer2.ReportSource = rptEstimate;
      crystalReportViewer2.Refresh();


Is this the correct way or wrong. And if this is wrong then can you please help me out...

Thanks
Bharat

Can u verify if the Report file EstimatedHikeDetails  is populated correctly?

You can also check one more option of Getting the Report file into ReportDocument and then set the ReportSource of the Viewer to this ReportDocument.

The link below gives the different methods of setting a ReportSource

You can use the Report Document Model (though I dont know why your code does not work). Do the followings:
1. Add reference to CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.
1. Use ReportDocument object to load your rpt file.
        ReportDocument oDoc = new ReportDocument();
        oDoc.Load("C:\\MyFolder\\MyReport.rpt");
2. Attach the dataset
        SqlDataAdapter sqlAdapt = new SqlDataAdapter(" select * from estimatedresourcedetails ",sqlConn);
     DataSet dsNew = new DataSet();
     sqlAdapt.Fill(dsNew, "BU");
     sqlConn.Close();
     oDoc.SetDataSource(dsNew);
3. Assign the report document to the viewer
     crystalReportViewer2.ReportSource = oDoc;
     crystalReportViewer2.Refresh();
