We have a C# .net remoting application that is using the CR 10 to print reports. We are using Visual Studio 2005 for our development environment. We are interested in Using the CR component to export the Crystal report to a PDF File and write the PDF file to the SQL Database for storage. Here are a couple of requirements:
1. I want the PDF to print after it has been sent to the SQL database (without having to make a call to the SQL database to print the report (It should use the locally created PDF File that was unloaded to the SQL Server.
2. I do not want the Crystal viewer to be displayed. Each report (which are actually invoices) should have a pdf created, uploaded to the SQL Server, and printed.
How can this be done without 3rd party components?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
