crystal report -visual studio 2008 dual axis chart (bar & line)


dear all, 

i use crystal report integrated with  vs.2008, and i want to make chart with dual axis (bar & line).

i have used bar chart and input the data with 2 values..

then in chart options > template, i activated the dual axis..

my question is, how i can change the 2nd value with line chart not bar chart??

i'd tried to find the right settings in "chart options" but still can't find the solution.

for information in "chart options" there are 4 sub menu : template, general,titles,grid..

i read in a tutorial there's more sub menu called "series" in crystal report (stand alone version)..

is it possible doing it in Crystal Report VS. 2008?

please,, i need your advice and solution..

Thanx before..

CSS support in visual studio 2008 express edition


I have several css style sheets I want to work with.  I have copied them into the appropriate directory structure in my project.  The styles are applied correctly.

But the manage CSS styles tool bar on the left margin doesn't seem to work correctly.  At one point I had generated a style sheet and worked with it there, but now it not only can't find the one it generated, but the attach style sheet link doesn't respond at all, nor does anything in this bar.  Same deadness with the CSS Properties bar.  With or without a style sheet loaded in the editor -- a style sheet that is active in the project such that when I run it, the styles are applied.

WPF Designer (in VS 2008 and VS 2010) crashes with Visual Studio

Good day all. I have the following question: WPF designer in both VS 2008 and VS 2010 crashes with Visual Studio when I try to edit UI form. Moreover, it crashes even when I try to save .xaml.cs file. Meanwhile, Winforms and Dataset UI editors work as usual. Are there other people met this issue? And how could I fix up this problem? Deleting the .suo file, uninstalling silverlight, repairing visual studio, and further googling did not help me. Thanks in advance.

AdventureWorks and Visual Studio 2008

Would someone please tell me how to get Visual Studio to automatically create the correct SQL statements so that I can stop getting the following error:"there was an error executing the query. please check the syntax of the command and if present the types and values of the parameters and ensure they are correct. Invalid object name 'Product'" 'Product'  gets replaced with whatever table name I drag onto my web form from the server explorer. The only information that may help that I know is that I noticed that Visual Studio creates the following select statement: "SELECT * FROM [BillOfMaterials]" and this generates an error. Where as when I manually type "SELECT * from Production.BillOfMaterials;" Everything works fine. The only issue with this is i would hate to have to manually enter all of the SQL statement into my web app.  Any help would me great appreciate. SQL2008.AdventureWorks_All_Databases.x64 - this is the version of AdventureWorks that I downloaded and installed on my machine.
