Conditionally Printing Objects

(OP)
Is there a way to prevent printing objects based on whether the report is running in Preview mode versus being printed? Crystal Reports 8.5 fyi. Thanks!

RE: Conditionally Printing Objects

Create a parameter field with default values of V-View and P-Print.  Then conditionally suppress the object based on the value of the parameter.

RE: Conditionally Printing Objects

Guess I'm not understanding completely or I didn't specify my question clearly. Are 'V-View' and 'P-Print' reserved internal print-state variables? I have text on some of my reports that guide the user while in the viewer that I don't want to actually have appear on the printed version should the user decide to print it from the viewer.  I *think* what you're suggesting is prompting the user as to whether to view the report or print it.  I'm kind of looking to automatically view it first and then conditionally print some objects of it should the user hit the print button.  Hope that's clearer! Thanks! : )

RE: Conditionally Printing Objects

You are right on, this is for user interaction and they would indicate if they are printing or viewing, and teh objects would be displayed accordingly.
