Custom control for display client formatted text in Crystal report

Introduction

In this post, I describe how to dynamically apply format to Crystal report text. In Crystal Report, you can’t directly change color, font size, Style, alignment, etc. So I have created one custom composite control which helps you to format text object in Crystal report.

Background

In Crystal Report, Text Field object properties like Font size, color, style, etc. can’t change. For this, I used HTML editor but it can’t support some tags. So I decided to create my own control which can format the text from client side.

Using the Code

Here, I have used formula field to show the data in Crystal report.

Sample Image - maximum width is 600 pixels

In the below image, I show how to add display data in formula field.
