    Hi,

    Report Viewer Print Button appear only in internet explorer while it does not appear in chrome, firefox, opera and safari.

    What to do to let it appear in other browsers?

    By default, the ASP.NET ReportViewer control enables client-side printing when the user browser is Internet Explorer only. If the user opens to the report page through Firefox or Chrome, then ReportViewer will hide the Print button from the toolbar. This happens because the built-in client-side printing mechanism (a.k.a. RSPrintClient.cab) was designed and developed by using ActiveX which is not supported by other browsers but just by IE.

    You can use WebClientPrint for ASP.NET:
