Send a report directly to the printer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I need to send a report directly to the printer.  I've been doing this for a long time without an issue, the basis of this is: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms252172(v=vs.90).aspx

    My problem now is that I don't know how long my piece of paper is, so setting the page height is not possible.  I'm printing to a receipt printer, which uses rolls of paper.

    So can anyone please help me either:

    1. Export the report to an EMF and tell it the correct height of the paper
    2. Suggest another way to print this report directly to the printer

  • There basically is not a way to print a report like this, that I found.  

    The limitations on printing reports is appalling.  So I rendered it as a PDF. Then shelled Sumatra PDF to print it.
