Method of adding a graphic to a Report
After evaluating the charting that comes within Crystal Developer 14.0. and searching on the net It appears that there is not way to set the y Axis (or x axis for that matter) scale at run time. I have a report with date/value pairs that I want in a x-y line chart. There are several "groups" of these pairs that are different charts (the chart is in the Group footer). Each "Group of pairs" has a min and max value that is known only at run time.
It appears my choice is to create the chart outside of Crystal (in my C# application), convert the chart to an Image, and somehow have the image appear in the report. I am using Visual Studio 2010 and an ADO.Net (XML) data set. (I have purchased the Bus Obj Crystal Developer I am not using the free one that you download for visual studio)
Is there a data type I can use to imbed the graphic in the Data Set? (I.E. Byte or Object)?
Any other thoughts would be appreciated
