    Helllo All,

    I have been working with Telerik Windows Forms.

    I already migrated a project from Silverlight Viewer to Windows Forms viewer, the issue that I have is when I print a report the print dialog does not contain an option to shrink oversized reports to letter size.

    The option was available on Silverlight.

    Is there any configuration to perform the shrink automatically in execution time? We have a lot of reports with different sizes but  we want to avoid modifying all the reports format.


    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Rafael,

    This is not a known issue. We perform some tests to print report with larger format and setting Letter format into the Advanced options of the print dialog. It worked as expected on our side though.

    To implement some custom printing logic you can handle the PrintBegin event of the WinForms ReportViewer component. Since this event supports cancellation you can disable the default printing logic of the viewer and replace it with your own implementation instead. You can find an example in PrintBegin Example section.

    Progress Telerik
