This is the continuation of my tutorial about Generating Reports. This time I will show you how to put a Crystal Report in a Windows Form and retrieving the records from the database.

 

Let’s begin:

 

 

First, open the file of Employee’s Information in Visual Studio 2008. Add a new Windows Form Application. And hit add.

crystalreportEmp(3)_form1

After that, add the Crystal Reports Viewer and Report Documents in the reports Form.

crystalreportEmp(3)_form2

Go back to the Design Views and click the Form1. Add a Button, name it “Print”.

 

crystalreportEmp(3)_form3

Double click the button and do this following code for showing the reports.

[vbnet] Private Sub report_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
‘showing the reports
frmreports.Show()
‘getting the crystal report and placing it on the crystal report viewer using the report documents that represent as a EmpInfo.rpt
frmreports.CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = reports.EmpInfo.rpt
End Sub
[/vbnet]
