Hello experts.  

I have a crystal report built into a VB Form (Form1.cs), and I have a string defined that I need to feed to a parameter inside my CrystalReport1.cs.

In my Form1.cs, here's the code for the variable:

/********************************
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity user =
                        System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent();

            MessageBox.Show(user.Name);
            try
            {
                ITerminalServicesManager manager = new TerminalServicesManager();
                using (ITerminalServer server = manager.GetLocalServer())
                {
                    server.Open();
                    foreach (ITerminalServicesSession session in server.GetSessions())
                    {
                        if (session.UserAccount != null && (user.Name.Split('\\')[1].ToLower() == session.UserName.ToLower()))
                        {
                            string station_id = Environment.MachineName + ":" + session.SessionId;
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
            catch (Exception exp)
            {
                MessageBox.Show(exp.Message);

********************************/


In my CrystalReport1.cs, the parameter section:

/*******************
     [Browsable(false)]
        [DesignerSerializationVisibilityAttribute(System.ComponentModel.DesignerSerializationVisibility.Hidden)]
        public CrystalDecisions.Shared.IParameterField Parameter_stationvariable {
            get {
                return this.DataDefinition.ParameterFields[1];
            }
        }
*******************/

I need to pass the station_id form variable to the Parameter_stationvariable.

Something like:

/**********
[Browsable(false)]
        [DesignerSerializationVisibilityAttribute(System.ComponentModel.DesignerSerializationVisibility.Hidden)]
        public CrystalDecisions.Shared.IParameterField Parameter_stationvariable {
            get {
                Private Sub ApplyTextObject(ByVal vstrTextObject As String, _
                ByVal vstrTextValue As String)
                    Try
                        CType(mrptDoc.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects(vstrTextObject), _
                        CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject).station_id = _
                        vstrTextValue
                    Catch ex As Exception
        MessageBox.Show("ApplyTextObject" & Environment.NewLine & _
"There is no >>" & vstrTextObject & _
"<< object in this report!")
    End Try
End Sub
            }
        }
**********/


Thoughts?

Thanks

Why did you close your other question if you still needed help?
The reference I gave you has the code for a full running application
http://www.emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2006/09/Feeding-Crystal-Reports-from-your-application.aspx

You have to call the procedure ApplyTextObject with your parameter name and the value you want to pass to it.

I'm god-awful at VB scripting, and need some help with the actual syntax.  I threw together my best guess after reading some tutorials with the code above.  I still have a ways to go.

im going to close and repost this one as it seems other coders tend to ignore tickets that have a few comments on them already.  I do appreciate your links though.
