HTML tags in Crystal Report

Hi,

After a long time I get a chance to update my blog. Nowadays I am working on project and using Crystal Report. I am passing HTML to crystal report to display data. But I find it out that Crystal Report not support all the HTML tags. For example Crystal Report will not recognize <br/> tag. If you want to add break tag don’t close it. Write it as requip modutab 4mg <br>. Similarly I find it out that if you want to add multiple line breaks. Then multiple break tags <br><br> will not work in Crystal Report. It will only give single line break. But if you view the same code in a webpage you will see multiple line breaks. So the best I find it out is that instead of using <br> tag, you can use <p> tag for line breaks.


The tags supported by Crystal Report are,

  • html
  • body
  • div (causes a paragraph break)
  • tr (causes only a paragraph break; does not preserve column structure of a table)
  • span
  • font
  • p (causes a paragraph break)
  • br (causes a paragraph break) Remember not to close the tag
  • h1 (causes a paragraph break, makes the font bold & twice default size)
  • h2 (causes a paragraph break, makes the font bold & 1.5 times default size)
  • h3 (causes a paragraph break, makes the font bold & 9/8 default size)
  • h4 (causes a paragraph break, makes the font bold)
  • h5 (causes a paragraph break, makes the font bold & 5/6 default size)
  • h6 (causes a paragraph break, makes the font bold & 5/8 default size)
  • center
  • big (increases font size by 2 points)
  • small (decreases font size by 2 points if it’s 8 points or larger)
  • b
  • i
  • s
  • strike
  • u

Crystal Report support the following attributes,

  • align
  • face
  • size
