    Lightbulb [VB6] Crystal Report API

    Some of the Crystal report API functions are exposed here. I was searching for something like this but found little help. And finally I came up with this. Advantages are :
    • Print Preview can be output to any window
    • Faster than ActiveX component as much overload is handled by API calls.
    • Can control the DEVMODE structure to handle Number of Copies , Print Quality, Orientation, Paper Size etc.
    • Can connect to MSACESS or SQL Server by a given Connection String
    • Parameters can be passed dynamically
    • Can create new Paper/Forms on the fly or update the dimensions dynamically.

    For us Scottish/pensioners/tight VB6 Pro owners, I believe the last 'free' (gift to us by MS) was ver 4.6
    Will this work with that ?

    Crystal Report API has 16 bit support. The API is taken from Crystal Reports 9.22 Setup \Tools\Developers\global32.bas. If you need 16bit support then use functions from crwrap.bas.

    I am fairly sure that 4.6 was 32 bit
    Let me rephrase my question then -
    Does your offering work with any version of Crystal Reports, that wil not cost VB6 Pro programmers any money ?

    Hopefully someone else might make sense of the answers (I'm not)
