|Registry Functions: |
These functions will retrieve a value from the CurrentUser and LocalMachine hives of the Windows registry. If the Key or property isn't valid, the function will return a blank value. Random Functions:
- GetRegCurrentUser(Key, Prop)
- GetRegLocalMachine(Key, Prop)
Crystal reports 8 added a random function to the formula editor, so these functions are here for users of earlier versions of Crystal Reports. The GetRegRandom should be calcuated WhileReadingRecords to get individual values for each record.
You get three Disk Volume Functions:
The first two, obviously, retrieve the serial number and volume label of the specified drive. GetVolInstallPath retrieves the location of where the User function library is installed (Usually \Windows\Crystal or \WinNT\Crystal).
This will stop your report and display a message (with the required caption). Then it will continue processing the report. If you accidentally specify a condition where an excessive number of alerts have been raised, you can cancel the messages. Size Functions:
- GetVolAlert(Message, Caption)
These functions convert a number into the appropriate formats, and display the required units of measure.
- GetSizeFt(Value) value is in inches
- GetSizeHrs(Value) value is in minutes
- GetSizeMetric(Value) value is in 1/000 of the units
