Symptom

The thickness of lines displayed in Crystal Report viewer is different from Crystal Reports designer for each terminal

  • Visual Studio 2010 / Visual Studio 2012 / Visual Studio 2015
  • SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio (Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 , 2015)

    Capture123.PNG
  3. However when view the RPT via Crystal Reports for Visual Studio, the UI shows as following:
    Capture12.PNG
  4. When user zoom the RPT into 150% in .NET Viewer, the result is the same as desinger.

Resolution

This is a by design behavior since Crystal Reports for Visual Studio use .NET GDI mode however Crystal Reports designer uses C++  mode, so it is not guaranteed that both behaviors are totally the same for all UI details.
