    I am trying to print Telerik report (.trdx) directly to the printer using MVC.

     

    Please let me know the solution.

    Hello Naren,

    Telerik Reporting ASP.Net WebForms and HTML5 viewers rely on the client(browser)'s PDF plugin to print the report. This operation cannot be started without the user confirmation at the client.

    The recommended approach to print at the client is to export the report in PDF format with specififc Javascript settings forcing the PDF reader to open its Print dialog - Print a report directly at client-side without displaying it in an ASP.NET ReportViewer. Details how to wrap a TRDX file for further processing are available in How to: Deploy a report created with Standalone Report Designer.


    In case you need to print the report on the server, you can use the ReportProcessor.PrintReport method with properly set printer settings to avoid popups on the server - Hide the print progress dialog when printing a report programmatically.
