I'm new to this great product and i am wondering if it is posible to fill a report and print it from codebehind.

We use webforms. I am thinking to create a order, then add the end of the order on "Make Order". The user has selected a outputtype. This can be email, print, ... . When he selects print i would like to fill in the report template that we can make with this report tool and send to a printer. Basicly send the pdf that the telerik reporting viewer can make. But i don't need the report viewer on this webform. I just wanne use its functionality to fill in the template and print a pdf file.

Thanks :)

Hi Koen L,

On the client side you can invoke the print through the ReportViewer client object's PrintReport() method and hide the Web Report Viewer by setting its style to "display:none" 


For more information and code snippets check out the How to print report on client mashine without showing the report help article.

Kind regards,

Hi,

I am using the code that is given in the demo. BUT it doesnt seem to work when I set display:none.

When I try it without the "display:none", it works fine.

Any idea why???

Solved the problem by setting style="width:1px; height:1px; overflow:hidden". Does throw up a weird color pixel, but nothing too bad.

Now here is the kicker..... the report I am generating has 5 pages, but the printer only prints the first page. How can I get all 5 pages to be printed?

Hello Andy,

Most likely you either do not have Acrobat Reader installed on your machine (required for true printing) or its plug-in is not enabled in the browser - please install/enable it and try printing again. When the Acrobat PDF plug-in is not detected, the web viewer would use the default browser print capability, which prints only the data available on the current screen along with the URL from which it came and this is expected.
