Printing without viewing Report RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was looking at some old posts about printing a report without viewing in Report Viewer. Is there any easier way to do this with more recent upgrades to VB (I am using VB 2008)? I am hoping so. The code looks very complicated. I just want to be able to click on a button and have it print to the default printer.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • Hi J-Bal,

    We did not make any enhancements to printing without viewing in the 2008 release. We are looking at this type of feature in a later release. We have this DCR on file, but you can also propose the DCR at http://connect.microsoft.com to keep the feature request on our radar.

  • Sounds great!!

    In the meantime, does anyone have any sample code I can use to accomplish this? I looked at the 'Walkthrough: Printing a Local Report without Preview' but it looked like it was doing it from scratch. I already have the report built and bounded to an already existing dataset. I just need to go from that point.

    thanks.

  • Forgot to mention - I would also like to have it print landscape and print to the pc or laptop's default printer (without having to hard code the printer name).

    thanks.
