    1.C# Crystal Reports sample databse

    For generating Crystal Reports from C# , we need to connect a database and some tables with data. In the following section you can see how to create a sample Database and Tables and the data for running of the following Crystal Reports - C# Tutorial . All examples in the CSharp Crystal Reports Tutorial is based on the following database .

    First we have to create a database named it as "crystaldb"

    Create DataBase "crystaldb"

    In the crystaldb database , create three tables

    OrderMaster , OrderDetails , Product .

    The Table Structure follows :

    OrderMasterOrderMaster_idOrderMaster_dateOrderMaster_customerOrderMaster_createduser

    OrderDetailsOrderDetails_idOrderDetails_masteridOrderDetails_productidOrderDetails_qty

    ProductProduct_idProduct_nameProduct_price

    The following picture shows the relation of tables in crystaldb database :

  • SQL command for creating tables are follows :

    CREATE TABLE [dbo].[OrderMaster] ([OrderMaster_id] [int] NOT NULL ,[OrderMaster_date] [datetime] NULL ,[OrderMaster_customername] [varchar] (50),[OrderMaster_createduser] [varchar] (50)) ON [PRIMARY] CREATE TABLE [dbo].[OrderDetails] ([OrderDetails_id] [int] NOT NULL ,[OrderDetails_masterid] [int] NULL ,[OrderDetails_productid] [int] NULL ,[OrderDetails_qty] [int] NULL) ON [PRIMARY] CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Product] ([Product_id] [int] NOT NULL ,[Product_name] [varchar] (50) ,[Product_price] [numeric](18, 0) NULL) ON [PRIMARY]

    Enter some data to the tables :

    From the following pictures you can see some data in the table for C# - Crystal Reports tutorial

  • Order Master Table Data

    Order Details Table Data

    Product Table Data

    2. C# Crystal Reports step by step

    A step by step tutorial for beginners who is creating their Crystal Reports for the first time in C#.

    All C# Crystal Reports Tutorial in this website is based on the following database - crystaldb. So before you begin this section , please take a look at the database structure of crystaldb - Click Here C# crystaldb

    http://csharp.net-informations.com/crystal-reports/csharp-crystal-reports-db.htm

  • Here we are going to create a new Crystal Reports in C# from Product table in the above mentioned database crystalDB. The Product Table has three fields (Product_id,Product_name,Product_price) and we are showing the whole data from Product table to the C# - Crystal Reports project.

    Open Visual Studio .NET and select a new CSharp Windows project.

    Now you will get the default Form1.cs.

    From the main menu in Visual Studio C# project select PROJECT-->Add New Item . Then Add New Item dialogue will appear and select Crystal Reports from the dialogue box.

  • Select Report type from Crystal Reports gallery.

    Accept the default settings and click OK.

    Next step is to select the appropriate connection to your database (here crstaldb). Here we are going to select OLEDB Connection for SQL Server to connect Crystal Reports in C#.

    Select OLE DB (ADO) from Create New Connection .

  • Select Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server .

    The next screen is the SQL Server authentication screen for connecting to the database - crystalDB. Select your Sql Server name , enter userid , password and select your Database Name .

    Click next , Then the screen shows OLE DB Property values , leave it as it is , and then click finish button.

  • After you click the finish button , the next window you will get your Server name under OLEDB Connection, from there selected database name (Crystaldb) and click the tables , then you can see all your tables from your database.

    From the tables list double click the Product table then you can see the Product table will come in the right side list.

  • Click Next Button

    Select all fields from Product table to the right side list .

    Click Finish Button. Then you can see the Crystal Reports designer window in your C# project. In the Crystal Reports designer window you can see the selected fields from Product table. You can arrange the field Objects and design of the screen according your requirements. After that your screen is look like the following picture.

  • Now the designing part is over and the next step is to call the Crystal Reports in your C# application and view it through Crystal Reports Viewer control in C#.

    Select the default form (Form1.cs) you created in C# and drag a button and a CrystalReportViewer control to your form .

    After you drag the CrystalReportViewer to your form , it will look like the following picture.

    You have to include CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine in your C# Source Code.

    using CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine;

    Copy and paste the following source code and run your C# project

  • using System;using System.Windows.Forms;using CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine;

    namespace WindowsApplication1{ public partial class Form1 : Form { public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); }

    private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { ReportDocument cryRpt = new ReportDocument(); cryRpt.Load(PUT CRYSTAL REPORT PATH HERE\\CrystalReport1.rpt"); crystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = cryRpt; crystalReportViewer1.Refresh(); } }}

    NOTES:

    cryRpt.Load(PUT CRYSTAL REPORT PATH HERE\\CrystalReport1.rpt");

    The Crystal Reports file path in your C# project file location, there you can see CrystalReport1.rpt . So give the full path name of Crystal Reports file like c:\projects\crystalreports\CrystalReport1.rpt

    When you run the source code you will get the report like the following picture.

  • When you click the button, the application will ask the username and password. Later in this tutorial you can find how to avoid asking username and password -

    3.C# Crystal Reports Dynamic Logon parameters

    The following section describes how to pass the logon information like Server Name , database Name , User Name and password dynamically to the Crystal Reports from C# applications.

    When you run the previous programs in this C# tutorial , the Crystal Reports asks the Username and Password every time you run the Crystal Report. This section explains how to avoid the dialogue box asking username and password at runtime on Crystal Reports login . In this section we are passing User ID , Password , Server Name and Database Name dynamically to Crystal Reports from C# .

    All C# Crystal Reports Tutorial in this website is based on the following database - crystaldb. So before you begin this section , please take a look at the database structure of crystaldb - Click Here C# crystaldb

    If you are new to Crystal Reports and do not know how to create Crystal Reports from C# , please take a look at the section step by step tutorial for creating a Crystal Reports from C#.

    In many situations dynamically passing the logon parameter fields are very useful , for example if you develop a database project in a test server environment and later you have to migrate it to other server , in these situations it is better to give these information dynamically to Crystal Reports .

    In step by step tutorial for creating a Crystal Reports from C# - we created a report selecting all data from the Product table . There is no chance to change the server name or any other information on runtime in that case, because it is a static report and it will asks username and password every time you run the Crystal Reports . Here we are passing Server Name , UserID and Password dynamically to the Crystal Reports from our C# program

    Here we use Crystal Reports ConnectionInfo class for passing connection information.

    ConnectionInfo crConnectionInfo = new ConnectionInfo();

  • Select the default form (Form1.cs) you created in C# and drag a button and a CrystalReportViewer control to your form .

    You have to include CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine in your C# Source Code.

    using CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine;

    using CrystalDecisions.Shared;

    Copy and paste the following source code and run your C# project

    using System;using System.Windows.Forms;using CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine;using CrystalDecisions.Shared;

    namespace WindowsApplication1{ public partial class Form1 : Form { public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); }

    private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { ReportDocument cryRpt = new ReportDocument(); TableLogOnInfos crtableLogoninfos = new TableLogOnInfos(); TableLogOnInfo crtableLogoninfo = new TableLogOnInfo(); ConnectionInfo crConnectionInfo = new ConnectionInfo(); Tables CrTables ;

    cryRpt.Load("PUT CRYSTAL REPORT PATH HERE\CrystalReport1.rpt");

    crConnectionInfo.ServerName = "YOUR SERVER NAME"; crConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = "YOUR DATABASE NAME"; crConnectionInfo.UserID = "YOUR DATABASE USERNAME"; crConnectionInfo.Password = "YOUR DATABASE PASSWORD";

    CrTables = cryRpt.Database.Tables ;
