Hai all,

In my application, I need to export the crystal report in to pdf format after showing the report in Crystal report viewer...

I know that There is a button(Export Button) in Crystal report viewer.. Using this,User can export the report in to pdf(by changing the 'save as type'...).

But when the user clicks the export button in crystal report viewer
a save file dialog is opening with default 'save as type' as .rpt(Crystal Reports) format...

I need to change this default format from .rpt to .pdf(Adobe Acrobat)... Is this possible...?

If possible,then How...?

please help...?

Thanks in advance...

           SaveFileDialog saveFileDialog = new SaveFileDialog();
            saveFileDialog.InitialDirectory = Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments.ToString();
            saveFileDialog.Filter = "Document (*.pdf)|*.PDF";
            saveFileDialog.FilterIndex = 1;
