Crystal Reports for Visual Studios 2010.

Reproducing the Issue

  • Create two static parameter fields.
  • Pass the parameter values to an ASP.NET web page:
Dim Parameter1 As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter("@fromdate", CType(Fromdate, Date))
Parameter1.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input
Parameter1.DbType = DbType.Date
Dim Parameter2 As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter("@todate", CType(Todate, Date))
Parameter2.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input
Parameter2.DbType = DbType.Date
  • When the report displays in the CR viewer for VS .NET, click Next to move to page two.
  • The report prompts with a parameter popup box to reenter the values.


  • There is a new value added to the parameter properties when adding/editing report parameters.
  • Look for "Show On Viewer Panel".
  • Set this property to "DO NOT SHOW" to disable the prompts when passing parameters via code.
