I implemented Telerik report viewer in Blazor Hybrid. After viewing the report, I wanted to print that report in the windows and android platforms. With windows build, it works perfectly. but in the android platform it is not working well. After i clicked it redirect to the server URL and download the report as a PDF using browser. Is there any way to print it without downloading it in android?

Hi Lasitha,

Thank you for the provided information!

This is expected behavior because, in the web Report Viewers, the printing functionality 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. By default, the viewer widget tries to use the PDF plug-in of the browser for printing but when it is not available or not supported, the widget falls back to exporting to a PDF file containing a special 'print' script. The purpose of this script is to open the Print dialog of the PDF reader right after the file has been opened.

For more details on this topic, please refer to the Printing Reports - Telerik Reporting article.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Regards,
Dimitar
