1870775 - SDK Enhancement: A new Subreport API has been introduced to get/set the location of a linked subreport

Symptom

In an application using our .NET or Java SDK packages there is no API to change/set a new location to a Linked subreport.

Environment

  • Crystal Reports 2008 .NET SDK
  • Crystal Reports Developer for Visual Studio
  • BI 4.0 .NET SDK
  • BI 4.1 .NET SDK
  • Crystal reports for Eclipse ( SP 17 )

Resolution

Here is the code to use:

SubreportClientDocument subreportClientDocument = subreportController.GetSubreport("SubReport.rpt");               

subreportClientDocument.SubreportLocation = "c:\\YourReportFolder\YourSubreport.rpt";

string rptLocation = subreportController.SubreportLocation;

 

The SDK API's will be available in the following products and Patches:

  • Crystal Reports 2008 - Service Pack 7
  • Crystal Reports Develoepr for Visual Studio ( 2010 and 2012 ) Service Pack 7
  • BI 4.0 .NET SDK Support Pack 7
  • BI 4.1 .NET SDK Support Pack 02

NOTE: BI 4.0 SDK packages are only available for downloads through SAP Service Market Pace

See attached sample application for the full feature and functionality ( for BI 4.x SDK - change the dependencies to match product installed )

In Java it is in the following class:

CrystalReportsSDK.jar has the following methods – BUT CrystalReportsRuntime.jar also has subreportcontroller.class – but these functions do not exist in it.

-----------------------


    public String getSubreportImportLocation(String subreportName)
        throws ReportSDKException
    {
        if(subreportName == null || subreportName.length() == 0)
            throw new IllegalArgumentException();
        ISubreportObject subObject = getSubreportObject(subreportName);
        if(subObject == null)
        {
            throw new IllegalArgumentException();
        } else
        {
            String location = "";
            location = subObject.getReimportLocation();
            return location;
        }
    }

-----------------------

    public void setSubreportImportLocation(String subreportName, String reportURL)
        throws ReportSDKException
    {
        SubreportClientDocument subClientDoc = (SubreportClientDocument)getSubreport(subreportName);
        ISubreportObject subObject = getSubreportObject(subreportName);
        if(subClientDoc == null || subObject == null)
            throw new IllegalArgumentException();
        if(reportURL == null)
            reportURL = "";
        subClientDoc.setReportURL(reportURL);
        ISubreportObject newSubreportObject = (ISubreportObject)subObject.clone(true);
        newSubreportObject.setReimportLocation(reportURL);
        m_MainReport.getReportDefController().getReportObjectController().modify(subObject, newSubreportObject);
    }
