I would like to try Crystal Reports for web applications.

I have done it with Windows application, but for Web application i don't know how to use naming and reference.
I am not able to get reference from system. I do have question like whether we will be able to do Crystal Reports in Web application only if we add some dll or not?
Whether we need to have vs2010 for adding Crystal Reports in web application?
So I am confused, not getting any idea.

If possible please try to give me some sample code with clear explanations.

I tried Googling, but its not enough to find an answers

This code is working in my web application try it.
rpt = new ReportDocument();
CrystalReportViewer1.Enabled = true;
string str = "rptInvoiceDetails.rpt";
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
string strConn = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["ConnectionString"];
SqlConnection MyCon = new SqlConnection(strConn);
SqlDataAdapter adp = new SqlDataAdapter("ProcedureName", MyCon);
adp.SelectCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
adp.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add("@Param1", SqlDbType.Int).Value = ParamValue1;
adp.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add("@Param2", SqlDbType.Int).Value = ParamValue2;
adp.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add("@Param3", SqlDbType.Int).Value = ParamValue3;
adp.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add("@Param4", SqlDbType.Date).Value = ParamValue4;
rpt.SetDatabaseLogon(SqlUser, SqlPassword, SqlServer, SqlDatabase);
CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = rpt;
CrystalReportViewer1.Visible = true;

ReportDocument.Load Method causing it to fail and results in Invalid file name. I have also added permission to temp folder still it doesn't solve the problem.

For Web Applications just go through the post posted by tarun, Refer this-

Generate a Report using Crystal Reports in Visual Studio 2010[^]

At the basic,you need to have Typed Dataset, A Report Viewer, Report document to display the Report...
Refer the above document, It will surely Help,

All the Best:-)
