Crystal Runtime provide a lot of properties/methods to customize a report:
You can modify sections, SQL query, Graphics, formulas, locations, etc.
So, examine Crystal VBX/OCX/VCL whatever You use in Your program for list of methods.
There are quite wide range of those.
As for disabling buttons, You can use resource workshop to customize a preview
window design. This is the only method I know, but examine the license agreement
to be sure it's allowed.
