Your given solution is in vb.net. But I want to know in C#.net. So, please give me the solution with the code of ASP.net with C#.net 2005.

Thanks in Advance...

Add semi-colons to the end of each line and you are almost done! You basically need one line:

(CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject)mrptDoc.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects(vstrTextObject).Text = _
vstrTextValue;

And it doesn't matter Windows or Web.

(CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject)mrptDoc.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects(vstrTextObject).Text = _vstrTextValue;

From the above code  .Text does not pop up in my asp.net with c# and then _vstrTextValue also doesn't appear.
pls give me the feasible solution

Thanks in Advance..
 private void ApplyTextObject(string vstrTextObject, string vstrTextValue)

    {

        try

        {

            

            (CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject)doc.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects(vstrTextObject) = vstrTextValue;
 
 

           

        }

        catch (Exception e)

        {

            System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("Catch here", "Message:", System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxButtons.OK, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon.Information, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxOptions.DefaultDesktopOnly);

I made a mistake. there shouldn't be any underscore there.

as for the text property, it is probably not the correct casting.

And my function is the following code snippet.
Then the calling function is

ApplyTextObject("txtInt_1", "Santhana Krishnan");
where txtInt_1 is the name of the TextObject and the "Santhana Krishnan" is the label which is appear to that particular TextObject.
private void ApplyTextObject(string vstrTextObject, string vstrTextValue)

    {

        try

        {

            CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject HeaderCohort = ((CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject)doc.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects["HeaderCohort"]);

            HeaderCohort.Text = "Veradis Technologies";

        }

        catch (Exception e)

        {

            System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("Catch here   -  "+e, "Message:", System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxButtons.OK, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon.Information, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxOptions.DefaultDesktopOnly);

        }

the code posted is not using your variables!

this one is:
private void ApplyTextObject(string vstrTextObject, string vstrTextValue)

    {

        try

        {

            CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject HeaderCohort = ((CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject)doc.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects[vstrTextObject]);

            HeaderCohort.Text = vstrTextValue;

        }

        catch (Exception e)

        {

            System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("Catch here   -  "+e, "Message:", System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxButtons.OK, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon.Information, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxOptions.DefaultDesktopOnly);

        }

    }
