I'm using the HTML Report Viewer in my Web Application.  On the larger reports (16-23 pages) when you click the Print button it takes forever to pop up if it ever does.  Is there any way to speed up this process and make the printer page come up faster?

I saw reference to a UseNativePrinting in a Silverlight post but I'm not using Silverlight. Is there anything like this for HTML?

Hello Ron,

The complexity of your report and the system specification of the used machine define the speed of processing the report and preparing it for print/export. Without more information about your report as the amount of  used data, data connection to the report, and the report definition itself it is hard to suggest any optimizations. There is no loading/progress indicator whenever you print or export if that is what you meant to ask.
In general, take a look at the following help article: Performance Considerations and if you need more help on that matter, please elaborate on your scenario.

About your last question - the ASP.NET viewer has only one print - True Print. The Silverlight being a platform that uses XAML and not HTML, has its own native print and we also have incorporated the True Print as well for the time when Silverlight did not yet had print functionality.
