Actually, we use the TR-Viewer. But can you call the serviceURL REST API telerik report to print directly on a local printer?

In the same way to download automatically the PDF result of a report?

Hi Pierre,

In the HTML5-based Report Viewers, such as the Angular Report Viewer, printing is based on rendering the report in PDF format with special settings so that when the PDF file opens in a browser, the PDF plug-in's Print dialog is directly invoked. For more information on this, please refer to the Printing Reports - Telerik Reporting article.

My understanding is that you would like to avoid the print dialog and have the rendered PDF instead automatically printed with the default printer of the client's computer, is that correct? Such a thing is often called "silent" printing and most modern browsers, by default, disable this for security reasons.

The only way, as far as I am aware, to have silent printing on is via a custom flag used when the browser exe is started - Chrome settings for silent printing – Brightpearl Help Center. but that is, unfortunately, not a solution that can be implemented to work out of the box.

Please let me know if you have any other questions

Regards,
Dimitar
