"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use the Esc key to close the report viewer, like this:

Private Sub frmViewCrystalReports_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles Me.KeyDown
       If e.KeyCode = Keys.Escape Then Me.Close()
End Sub

The ShowCloseButton affects the toolbar button that closes a "view" of a report which is the view that opens when you drill into a section.
You could add a control on top of the viewer control so there is a visual cue to close the screen.

For some reason - my form had the following property set - controlbox = false, this meant that the x at the top right hand corner of the screen was missing.
