I have an issue with printing a report book.  All the reports in the reportbook have an orientation of landscape, however, when you go to print, it always prints out portrait.  Yes, I can go into the print dialog and change it manually to landscape, but I don't consider that a good option for my customers.

If I pass to the report viewer one report only, the page settings are respected and the report prints correctly.  For a report book, the page settings are null, so when printing it doesn't know to print in landscape.

I really like your reportbook option, but frankly, with this problem, it really makes the option of using a report book unusable and sometimes subreports aren't a good option.  I'm really hoping there's something I'm missing here, because otherwise, I have to set up individual reports where really only one report is wanted and needed.

Hi Susan,

You have not mentioned the most important thing - what is the report viewer you're using? For example the Silverlight report viewer native print has very limited API which does not allow to set the page orientation. This has to be done manually from the printer settings. To avoid this, switch to True printing by altering the UseNativePrinting property.

If the problem is somewhere else, please elaborate on your scenario.

Kind regards,

I guess it would help if you knew which report viewer I'm using.  I'm using the WPF report viewer, so the UseNativePrinting property isn't available.

Below is the xaml and code behind from a test WPF project

Hello Susan,

Unfortunately you're correct and there is a bug logged in our system which I overlooked. I raised its priority and we would do our best to address it in the next version of the product.

Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.

All the best,
Steve

Hello Jan,

The bug is not fixed yet, but we would do our best to address it for the next release or subsequent internal build/service pack releases. In the meantime you can either print the reports separately via the PrintReport Method of the ReportProcessor class or export the report book to PDF and print from it.

Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.

Kind regards,
Steve

Hi Rosen,

Not yet, in major versions we work mainly on new functionality. We would look into the issue for the upcoming service packs.

Thank you for the patience.

Hello,

I recently ran into this behavior as well, and just wanted to 'sign the list' for this to be made a priority.

Thanks for your time,

My users brought this up again...it's becoming a pain point and it wastes a lot of paper since they forget they need to switch it to landscape manually.  Please please please fix this!

Thank you for your time.

If I recall correctly, I got around this by converting the telerik report into a memory stream, generated a PDF from that and used a PDF viewer to handle displaying/printing/saving options.

Just thought this might help some of you.

This problem has been around for over a year now.  Will it ever be fixed?  I'm beginning to have my doubts.

Hi guys,

Our intent and dedication to address existing problems has not changed, but sometimes our plans are subject to change due to other fixes/features and this is what caused the delay in addressing this particular issue. The good news is we're currently working on fixing it as we speak and it would be part of the Q3 2012 service pack that would be released early next year.

Thank you all for the understanding.

All the best,
Steve

This thread has been around since 2011. I am on Q3 2012 and the setting the landscape to true on the pagesettings object still doesn't work! Is there any hope of having this fixed? I am using reportbooks as well. Everything else works great, but can't have users manually setting this everytime they want to print. I would set this to the highest priority even above new functionality. I am using VS 2010 .net framework 4.0 and WPF

Thanks for any consideration on this issue.

Hello Jeff,

My previous reply is from Dec 18th 2012, stating that this would be fixed for the upcoming Q3 2012 service pack next week. The problem you talk about however does not seem to be the one discussed in this forum, as setting manually Landscape won't fix it. The problem in this thread appears only when you have a report book with reports with different layout (Portrait and LandScape). If your problem is different, please open a new thread and elaborate on your scenario.

Steve
