Crystal Report Print to PDF option RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-219608141 posted


    I am using Crystal Report 13 and trying to print a report. I setup my crystalreportviewer as bellow.

    <CR:CrystalReportViewer ID="CrystalReportViewer1" runat="server" AutoDataBind="true" PrintMode="ActiveX"/>

    When I press print button on CrystalReportViewer, it shows me Print to PDF export option with the following message. I want it to be print directly to the printer. 

    The viewer must export to PDF to print. Choose the Print option from the PDF reader application once the document is opened. Note: You must have a PDF reader installed to print. (eg. Adobe Reader)

    Please help. thanks
