Report Designer Component: any bad experience?

Report Designer Component: any bad experience?

Report Designer Component: any bad experience?

a) I'm first using the Report Designer Component with Visual Basic 6.0/SP5.
b) I'm using Crystal Report Viewer Control in order to preview the report component (like Seagate did with Viewer demo project).

Some questions about it:

1) Is there a way to refresh a report/component with an existing report file?
2) Some reports appears different that in Crystal Report (I mean different from the layout developed using Crystal Reports); any experience about it?
3) Run-time graphics reports preview is really slower than previewing from Crystal Report?...How can it be?

Thanks in advance,

Luca Alberti

RE: Report Designer Component: any bad experience?

I am not sure about questions 2 and 3, but to refresh the report I usually remove the report from the project and then add the newer, desired version.  You can do this without affecting the .frm code.
