How can I change backcolor/backimage of crystal report in C#.NET VS2008?
Updated 8-May-10 21:48pm

In the section expert, you can set a background color on a section. This can be an effective way to highlight a colored band for column headings.

But one effect you may not want is that the band goes all the way across the page. If you want a colored band across the report, but would like it to be narrower, we have a solution.


Create a second section and move it the above the original section.

Set this new section to “Underlay”

Make the section slightly larger than the subsequent section

Insert a box in this section, change the Border Style to “None” and set a fill color

This can be a very effective formatting technique to add some color to your report
