Support,
I am going to export Telerik Report into pdf file, and then open it in the browser. The following is what my codes:

        Dim report As New Report1()
        Dim mimetype As String = String.Empty
        Dim extension As String = String.Empty
        Dim encode As Encoding = Nothing
        Dim buffer As Byte() = ReportProcessor.Render("PDF", report, Nothing, mimetype, extension, encode)
        Dim fs As New IO.FileStream("C:\temp\a.pdf", IO.FileMode.Create)
        fs.Write(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)
        fs.Flush()
        fs.Close()

Result:
1. On the line (Dim buffer...), error "Use the "new" keyword to create an object instance", please help.
2. How do I open the pdf file in browser or RadWindows? (I am not good in javascript and my application must use the pdf temp file rather than direct showing pdf in browser)

Benson.

Hi Benson,

I'm attaching a sample page for your convenience. Take a look at it and let me know if you have any other questions.

The code snippet you have sent compiles correctly so the problem should be somewhere else.
 

Sincerely yours,

Support,

Thanks for your sample program.
I finally found out the root problem. In my report, I used some fonts (eg. PMingLiU) which shows in browser without problem, but return error in ReportProcessor.Render. After I use other fonts, the pdf creates without problem.

Thanks.
Benson.

Hi Benson,

It's great to hear that you have managed to find the problem on your own. Would it be possible for you to send us a sample font which causes the error so that we can investigate it? You can send it to support@telerik.com.
 

Kind regards,

Original, I use Arial for Report textbox, then Report is ok. But when I switch to use MingLiu, error occurs.
Hope you can find my problem.
