Prompting Dialog for Long List of Values
So in Crystal Reports 2008 we’ve improved how the prompting UI works with long lists of values. When the system detects more than 200 records in either a static or dynamic list of values, the UI above will automatically appear. The system will ‘batch’ the list of values into chunks of 200 records, and allow you to navigate between the chunks using the navigation arrows. You can also filter the list using the set and clear filter buttons. The filter applies to all records in the list of values – not just those in the current batch.
This UI appears in both the designer and supported viewers.
So with this new functionality, Crystal Reports 2008 is now much easier to use with long lists of values.
