Crystal Reports for Visual Studio.Net Keyboard/Mouse Wheel Navigation

Posted on 2006-06-05
Last Modified: 2008-01-16
I am using Crystal Reports for Visual Studio.Net and wrtiting the program in C# (but could translate if you know the answer in a different lang)

I would like to be able to press Page Down and the report goes to the next page and if possible, have the current page scroll down a bit if the user either presses the down arrow or scrolls the mouse wheel down.  It seems odd that the report doesent do this by default.

The only problem is I can't catch the CRViewer_KeyPress event at all.  What is going on?

    The more I research this topic, it seems that one should already be able to use page up, page down and up and down to move around the page to view the report - so why doesent it work in my reports?

    The Crystal viewers don't work that way.  I don't think they expose the Keypress events so they can be caught.
