Text field clipping/overlap & updating Crystal Reports web viewer
Posted on 2012-04-02
We purchased some software called Koperniko Reports which allows us to host our Crystal Reports on a website for users to access (essentially replaces SAP's Crystal Reports Enterprise server).
However, their software uses CR XI R2. The server has a copy of CR XI R2 designer installed and the IIS application that gets created is called 'crystalreportviewers115'. With the older Crystal viewer, I am having the problem of text fields not being clipped where the field ends. They extend past and overlap other fields.
From what I know, I don't think there is a fix for the text clipping in this version of the web viewer. But this is the root problem I am trying to solve...so if anyone knows of a way, I will gladly try it.
The other option I'm posting about...is there any way to update the Crystal viewer so it uses the new runtime instead? I already have the 'TruncateClippedFieldStrings' registry keys set to 'Yes'...but as noted in some support documents, it doesn't fix anything in the older version.
Is it possible to update the Crystal viewer that is being used?
