ReCrystallize Server supports three different sets of report viewer settings identified as V1, V2, and V3.

Viewer Option Effect
Enable Toolbar Shows or hides the entire viewer control toolbar.
Crystal Reports Logo Shows the Crystal Reports logo at the upper right corner of the viewer.
Drill Up Button Shows or hides the Drill Up button in the viewer toolbar.
Go to Page Button Shows or hides the Go to Page button in the viewer toolbar.
Group Tree Button Shows or hides the Group Tree button in the viewer toolbar.
Page Navigation Buttons Shows or hides the page back and page forward buttons.
Parameter Panel Button Shows or hides the button that opens the parameter selection panel at the left of the viewer.
Print Button Shows or hides the Print button in the viewer toolbar. Without the print or export button exposed, users will be unable to print the entire report in one step. The web browser’s print function may still allow users to print the report as web pages, one page at a time.
Refresh Button Shows or hides the Refresh button in the viewer toolbar. The Refresh button allows report data to be updated from the database without leaving the report.
Search Button Shows or hides the Search button in the viewer toolbar.
Zoom Factor Selection Shows or hides the Zoom Factor selection list in the viewer toolbar.
Drill Down Enables or disables drill-down capability to open subreports.
Allow Database Logon Prompting Enables or disables database logon prompting when automatic database logon fails. In most cases, this setting should be disabled. Enabling the option may be helpful for troubleshooting database logon issues. It can also be used when individual users have separate database accounts (this is not common).
Allow Parameter Prompting Enables or disables parameter prompting from the viewer. If parameter prompting is disabled, all required parameter values must be supplied in the URL or POSTed from a form.
Prompt for Parameters on Refresh Determines whether the viewer will prompt for new parameter values when the report viewer’s Refresh button is clicked. Setting this value to false will cause the previously selected parameter values selected to be re-used when the report data is refreshed from the database.
Show Group Tree Shows or hides the Group Tree toggle button.
Export Button Shows the Export button in the viewer toolbar. Hiding the export button removes the ability to export the report to PDF, Excel and so on.
Continuous Scrolling Displays reports as one continuous scrolling page or as separate pages. The setting may be overridden for a report by ending its filename in “scrolling.rpt”
Center Viewer on Page Causes the report viewer to appear centered in on the web page instead of at the left side of the web page.
Automatically Size

Height in pixels

Width in pixels
To set a specific height and/or width for the report viewer control, turn off the Automatically Size settings and enter the desired number of pixels. This may be useful when screen space is limited or to allow for easier report scrolling.
Initial Zoom Percent Sets the initial viewer zoom percentage when the report is opened. The default is 100%.
Hyperlink Target Sets the HTML target page for hyperlinks in the report. The default is “_blank”, which will open a new browser tab or window

In addition to these viewer controls, the file types available to export from the viewer’s export button may be selected. For example, you could limit the available export choices to PDF and RTF formats.
