Hi there,

we are evaluating telerik reporting engine!

We want to generate reports that should be printed automaticly to a networkprinter. I coded this (VB.net and WinForms) from the examples here:

http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/m_telerik_reporting_processing_reportprocessor_printreport.html



The printer itself is a tool which analyses the document and depending on its content adds some barcodes. But this does'nt work. Because the Printer gets an image with a lower resolutions as needed, the OCR of the tool didn't recognizes anything und the workflow fails.

Is there a way to solve this problem?

Even if I Export the Report first to PDF the OCR fails. The only way is to Export it as RTF and then print it from MS Word, but this is not applicable on all Clients!

Regards

Torsten

Hello Torsten,

In case you are using our Barcode item, such issues may appear with low resolution printers or if you have set the Barcode.Stretch property. Try increasing the Barcode item's Size and Module. Note that the result barcode is rendered as a vector image and in RTF it is a metafile image. Also it highly depends from the printer drivers and settings how documents will be handled and printed.

If you need further help, feel free to open a support ticket and send us your report definition, the result PDF file and details about the printer machine.

Regards,
Stef
