In Washington County, Pennsylvania, the courthouse wanted to provide a computer kiosk for the public to look up information on various cases. This information was to be delivered as a Crystal Report via Crystal Enterprise. But they needed a custom interface that was more suitable to the purpose than the out-of-the-box tools provided with CE.
A fully custom application was created to serve as the interface to the public. A simple menu and HTML forms were designed to gather parameters specific to each report. After validation, these parameters are passed to the report and the report is displayed. That’s it! The remaining CE functionality is hidden from the end users.
