Customize Parameter Prompt - Crystal Reports crystalreportviewer - VS 2005 C#

I wrote a program with Visual Studio 2005 in C#
that displays Crystal Reports on the web.  It depends upon the Report Document and CrystalReportViewer components found in the CrystalDecisions library.

If a report depends upon parameters, the program (the default action of the componenet used)
presents a "The report you requested requires further information." page with input boxes for each of the report's parameters.

My problem is that I cannot customize the look of the page.  I believe that each of the titles and input boxes are supposed to have css class names assigned, however in the HTML all of the classes are blank.

I have tried using themes and attaching css stylesheets all over the place.  However, I cannot manipulate the different sections of the parameters prompt page without some way to distinguish among them.

I don't think you can manipulate that page.  I don't have the .Net version of Crystal but in the other versions if that is the default parameter prompting screen from Crystal you can't manipulate it or change things on it.

You can however build your own web page and pass the parameters from it to the report and that page won't show up.

Here are some samples for C#
