Pass 3 Parameters to crystal report from form TextBoxes

I have a form with 3 TextBoxes unbound.  The user will enter all of the data in those 3 boxes.  When a button is clicked I would like to pass those three into parameters that I have already set-up in my crystal report and then print the report without preview.  How can this be done??
