hi guys,

i'm wondering, is there a way to make the ReportViewer skip the printer dialog box when printing a report?
i don't want the user to deal with printing options and want to set these things through code,
things like number of copies, default printer etc.
i tried to find a PreviewPrintReport or something like that - haven't find it.

any suggestions?

thanks.

Hi Lior ef,

Take a look at the following help article for more information: Hide the print progress dialog when printing a report programmatically. Additionally review the next KB article: Print Report straight to printer.

All the best,

hi,

just one more little problem.
if i want to print the report through code i have to do one of both things:
- hide the default print button of the ReportViewer so i can create my own.
- override the ReportViewers' print button event functionality to do what i want

how do i do any of them?
i've search the site and there are answers how to do that but in web ReportViewer using javascript, i use the WPF one.

thanks again.

Hello Lior ef,

The WPF Report Viewer and the Silverlight Report Viewer are actually templates that can be easily modified with Blend. That way you can customize the viewers' template to respond to any custom requirements you have i.e. removing the print button and/or adding your own with an appropriate event.
 

Best wishes,
