Symptom

As of Crystal Reports 2008, the DisplayGroupTree property of CrystalReportViewer control is no longer available.

Cause

Resolution

In CR 2008 .NET API, the CrystalReportViewer control has a new property called ToolPanelView. Using this property we turn off or on the Group Tree.
 
Below code shows how to turn off the Group Tree (applied to both Windows and Web "CrystalReportViewer" control):
 
Visual Basic:
To Turn off:
CrystalReportViewer.ToolPanelView = ToolPanelViewType.None
 
To Turn on:
CrystalReportViewer.ToolPanelView = ToolPanelViewType.GroupTree
 
C#:
To Turn off:
crystalReportViewer.ToolPanelView = ToolPanelViewType.None;
 
To Turn on:
crystalReportViewer.ToolPanelView = ToolPanelViewType.GroupTree;
The Enum value "None" of ToolPanelViewType will turn off both Group Tree and Parameter Panel in the CrystalReportViewer Control. You can turn on both Group Tree and Parameter Panel by clicking the corresponding button in the Tool bar.
