When running a crystal report I have some parameter fields that allow the user to enter their selection criteria for the report.  However when or if they decide not to run the report once the "Enter Values" screen appears, you cannot cancel or click the red X to exit the "Enter Values" screen, how do I setup the Enter Values so that if someone wanted to cancel the report they could?
Also the "Enter Values" does not open to full view you have to scroll down to see all the entries can I adjust that to expand to full view?

Are you using the Crystal parameter prompting screen?
If so, I don't believe there is a way around your problems since at that point Crystal is committed to running and needs the parameter values.

The size of the screen is totally controlled by Crystal.  You have no control over it.

One thing you can do is build you own parameter screen then pass the values to the report through code.
