Posted on 2011-02-28
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I used my vs2005 to develop the crystal report, it works pretty well to export to pdf.
Except that if my report has links, the pdf won't contain links.

i research this issue, it is due to how visual studio dll handle the export.

So i am looking for a new dll or third party dll to handle the export job.
Any dll i can use to export to pdf from crystal report programmatically?

Please advise,

There is no dll from Crystal that can do it or that you could use.

In one of the other questions it was suggested you try Visual Cut

Have you tried using a PDF Printer to create the PDF?
I don't know if they handle hyperlinks correctly or not.

I haven't try Visual Cut yet....

I was able to use my .net application to generate RPT, then use this RV viewer to convert to PDF ....
it has links and everything.

RV viewer:;6

but eventually our report is generated from backend programming (like scheduling) not manually by person ... so i need to find some sort of library to export my report to pdf.

That viewer uses the same libraries that you have available to you.

WHat backend are you using to generate the report?
