Introduction to the Crystal Report Viewers

The Crystal Report viewers that ship with Report Application Server break into four different categories to suit the need of a variety of applications: the Page viewer, Part viewer, Interactive viewer, and Grid viewer. Although all four viewers offer unique capabilities, they share a common API and set of basic features. Each viewer allows the developer to indicate which report to display, supply database logon credentials, apply report parameters, and export the report. All four viewers are exposed as server-side controls and as a result, output dynamic HTML that is rendered in any Web browser. No special software is required on the client's machines to view reports using any of the viewers.
