Static Reporting and Printing issues in VB.NET 2003
Posted on 2004-11-25
Have the following situation.......
Basically have a form that has a panel docked on the left and another panel docked on the right. The left panel serves as a type of summary while the right panel (scrollable) contains many fields which are populated via 3 seperate datasets. What I want to do is be able to print the right panel (represents the layout of a real life form) based on the data that is currently displayed on that form. I have tried using crystal reports but I dont want to have to requrey the database as it is a pain using the queries.....Just want to be able to use the static data which is already on that form for printing...Can you pass static data to a report? (ie no query required)....Or is it easier just to print the panel directly? If so, how can you do this so not only is just the right panel printed but also is resized automatically to fit one page.....Please let me know if there are other methods also...
