ReportViewer Window Switching RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have an app with two forms in which the first one has a button that opens the second form and the second form displays a report in the reportviewer control (this is actually a very simplified version of my actual app but it still exhibits the same problem).  When I do the following I get some weird window switching behaviour:
    • Run the app;
    • Use the task bar to go to another application (say Excel);
    • Use the task bar to go back to my app;
    • Click the button to open the second form;
    • Click the print button the reportviewer; and
    • Click Print in the Print Dialog that pops up.
    When I click Print in the dialog it brings to the front the other application (Excel) I clicked on and then brings to the front my app again.  It does this consistently and it makes the application seem fairly poor.

    Has anyone else come across this?  I was going to raise it as a bug but wanted to check if other people have come across it first.
