    Printing a report using the Crystal Report Web Form viewer


    My partner is trying to print a report with Crystal Report, they are using
    the Crystal Report Web Form viewer (working with VS .NET final) and can view
    the report succesfully. The problem occurs when they try to print the report
    via a print button. They already can send the report via email and export
    it to PDF succesfully (and print as PDF), but cannot print it from the web
    form. The previous version of Crystal Report in VS 6.0 had a icon which printed
    the report, but that option is not available in the new VS .NET version.
    They do not wish to use the print menu option in the browser, because it
    only prints the current page of the report.
    We tried using the .NETFramework: ReportDocument.PrinttoPrinter method
    (shown in MSDN Libarary) but it generates the following error:"error occurred
    in file (the filename.rpt), request cancelled by the user " when calling
    the method. Am I missing something? We tried the same code in a windows
    form (win32 exe) and were not succesful. Any suggestion appreciated.

    I have the same problem, but this occurs in beta 2 too.

    Anybody give me a solution yet. The solution seems to print it as PDF. For
    me this is not a solution....

    I went through this same problem as we began a large ASP to ASP.NET conversion
    project. We spent a few days evaluating our options. We have approx. 350
    reports in the current system and our users have to print them. The PDF option
    offered by Crystal is absurd. What I did was to stay with the non .NET Crystal
    version of the Report Writer. I took the .asp file that was provided by Crystal
    in our previous implementation and modified it to be a .aspx page. I know
    it has to use the interop from .NET to COM, but it seems to be working quite
    well so far. I have taken this approach until Crystal gets their head screwed
    on. Microsoft did a great job with Visual Studio.NET, but I don't think Crystal
    is quite there yet...
    Good Luck
    Robert
