Delivering Reports with the Web Forms Viewer

An equivalent viewer to the Windows Forms Viewer exists for ASP.NET-based applications; it's called the Web Forms Viewer. This is an ASP.NET control derived from the WebControl class. This means that it is a server-side control that renders only HTML to the client browser. No special controls, applets, or files are required on the client in order to view reports with the Web Forms Viewer.

Like the Windows Forms Viewer, the Web Forms Viewer can be found in the Visual Studio .NET toolbox and is called CrystalReportViewer. It is found in the CrystalDecisions.Web namespace and the CrystalDecisions.Web.dll assembly. Many objects used in the Web Forms Viewer are contained in the CrystalDecisions.Shared namespace. The Web Forms Viewer has many properties and methods that control how it displays reports. This section covers these.
