Passing Parameters from VS2008

Passing Parameters from VS2008

Passing Parameters from VS2008

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure if this is the right forum but I will post it here and see.

I have a VS2008 Gridview, above the Gridview I have a Dropdown Control which filters the data in the GridView for the selected Year.

Attachted to this Gridview I have a Crystal report with similar data of the Gridview.

In this Crystal report I have now got a Parameter for the year as well.

So currently, the user must select a Year for the Gridview and hten when they want to print the report, they need to select the Year for the report as well.

Is there any way of passing the value in the DropDownList Control in VS2008 to the Parameter field used in Crystal?

Any assistence with this would be much appreciated.


RE: Passing Parameters from VS2008

Here's an example of passing parameters from the crystal viewer to the crystal report:

crReport.SetParameterValue("LocID", txtLocID.Text)
        crReport.SetParameterValue("CustID", txtCustID.Text)
        crReport.SetParameterValue("OrderID", txtOrderID.Text)

        crViewer1.ReportSource = crReport
The fields in "" are the parameters in the crystal report.

Good Luck

Hi MzKitty,

Its not passing it form the viewer to teh report where I am having problems.

The issue is passing from a dropdown field (created in Visual Studio on a webpage) and making this the parameter field within the report, if this makes sense.

Any ideas?


RE: Passing Parameters from VS2008

What type of control is it? Is it a checkbox?

RE: Passing Parameters from VS2008

If the dropdown control filters the year then extract the year from it and put it in a variable that you can pass to the report.  For example:
dim intYear as integer
datYear = cdate(year(ctrlYear.datavaluefield)
crReport.SetParameterValue("Year", datYear)
