I use Visual Studio 2008 and crystal report for a C# web application.

All text objects in my report have the same CSS. For some fields, I want, for example, to change the text color or  to change the horizontal alignment but doesn't work. When I remove the CSS, it's work.

Do you have a tips or a idea for this?

Thanks

To set a color using CSS, here's an example:
color: Red;

To set vertical alignment, you can do, for example:
line-height: 100px;

I haven't explored the process of tying a CSS to a report but I would suspect that with a CSS tied to the report, it overrides any Crystal formatting since that is the main reason for a CSS is to standardize formatting of objects and eliminate the need to format each object indiviually.

I think that the best way is to define first the common settings of the report in window 'Report Options'.
Thanks
