Hello Telerik Team,

We have problems with printing report from client side when default printer has set portrait A4 format and report is formatted as landscape A4 format.

In our company we don't use Adobe Reader, instead of it we are using a free PDF Reader application http://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer (this is not an advertisement :). For futher information please check the attachment.

Our problems could be solved with above mentioned software. I wonder, if it will be possible to add a new option into PrintAs(format) based on http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/asp-net-report-viewer-clientapi.html. Now, there are two basic formats. PDF and default. In our case PDF is not working (it is obviously suitable only for Adobe Reader plugin) and default don't do auto-rotate sheets which simply rotate from portrait to landscape...

So, my question is about possibility to add this new option PrintAs for pdf xchnage viewer into future version of Telerik Reporting...

Thank you for your hep and support.

Best regards

Vasssek

Hi Vasssek,

It really would be nice, but there is one obstacle. Only the Adobe Reader has the plugins for most of major browsers which can be instantiated by the javascript.

Of course you can implement similar functionality by using our ReportViewer's HttpHandler. You only need to send the "right" Get request to the handler and it will return the pdf stream for you.
