Hi,

I am using the telerik reporting to display reports in my project.
The print works ok locally but the problem is that when I host the website the print button click shows the dialog box to print aftera long period and it does the postback on click too.

What I want is to display the dialog box to print as and when the user clicks on print button on client side only. The click should pop-up the dialog to print on client event only.

I am not able to search the client id of the print button. I have verified the code below:
 string printScript = string.Format("{0}.PrintReport();", this.SearchReportViewer.ClientID);  
            this.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "ReportPrint", printScript, true); 

I does not solve my purpose as it popu-ups the print dialog at startup of the page. Please help its somthing urgent.

Thanks,
Yuvika

Not resurrect something this old, but I have the same problem here. When I add the function after the ReportViewer, it wants to print on EVERY page load, and every postback. Very annoying. 

How do we call the .PrintReport through a function, and have it print ONLY when asked to do so?

Hi Jason,

This is a known issue we have already fixed in Telerik Reporting Q1 2012 release. Please upgrade to the latest Telerik Reporting release and let us know if you still experience any troubles.

Kind regards,

I still have the same problem, and I verified that my assemblies are all pointing to the right version. I have NO version 5 assemblies in my stuff. I am running Q1 2012 stuff.

It would help if I decided NOT to be special and clear my cached pages before I started. This is working as expected now, thank you. 
Different question - When I do run this, why does it take 25 seconds to pop up the print page? Is there a way to pop up a 'loading' box while the print dialogue opens
?

Hello Jason,

We are glad that you were able to resolve the print on postback issue.

Up to your new question - introducing some kind of progress indicator while the required PDF for printing is rendered is in our TO DO list and we will introduce a fix in subsequent Telerik Reporting release.

Greetings,
Peter

I am using chrome Version 34.0.1847.116 m, Telerik report viewer Assembly="Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=7.2.14.127, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a9d7983dfcc261be" 
When I click on print button it opens the print window and then it posts back the report viewer which closes the print window. So, user cannot print the report. As you said this has been fixed but it is still happening in this version of telerik reports assembly?? Do you have a fix for this issue for chrome? It works ok on IE.

Hi Bill,

We are unable to reproduce the described issue with Chrome 34. Thus our recommendation is to upgrade your Telerik Reporting installation. Additionally you may find useful the True Print help article.
