Hi,

We have some library that specifically take a PrintDocument object and then handle printing in a very customized manner.  We would like to feed a rendered report to the library but it seems that there is no way for us to process the report and convert it to a PrintDocument.  

It seems that Telerik Reporting still make use of PrintDocument internally when performing report printing.  Is there anyway that we can get the PrintDocument from the processing engine?

Thanks~

Hi SHING SHUN,

Our suggestion is to set up your own PrintDocument, you can use the ReportProcessor.RenderReport method to render the report in emf image and then use the emf to setup your own PrintDocument.

All the best,

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q1 2013? You can get them from your account.
