Hi,

I created a crystal report in VS2005.
the report is calling stored procedure, it has default input parameters page when i run the report.

Can i modify the feel and look even the functionality for that parameters page?
like using drop down field instead of checkbox etc.

Please advise,
Tommy

If you mean the Crystal parameters page, then no.

You can write your own page so it could have the feel you want but then you have to write the code to pass the parameters to the report.

so can i make my report working first with crystal parameter page? and then write my code to replace that page?

what i need, i use the report wizard to create the report, the OLE connection and call the stored procedure .... so after i did this, how can i create a new page to replace the crystal parameter page?
i didn't use ADO.NET dataset approach at all ... so it is a simple pull method for stored procedure.

Please advise,
Tommy

Basically you will have to develop a form that allows the users to input the values
When they click REPORT or a button indicating they are done you have to
1.  Verify values for all parameters are entered.  If not reprompt for the missing values
2.  Pass them to the report using code.

Here is an example of passing parameters
