Direct Printing

Post by admin@secsol.co.uk »

I am trying to print directly from my Report (without having to view a preview)

I have create a Report and loaded the report but when I call :

Report.Print();

It throws an Exception error :

System.NullReferenceException: 'Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Should just calling Print() allow the end user to select the printer and other options ?

Hello,

You can use the following code:

Code: Select all

StiReportResponse.PrintAsPdf(report);
Thank you.

Okay, I have found this in the manual : (even though I have a Report Viewer on this page)

StiBlazorHelper.Initialize(JsRuntime);

If I do this first the PDF is displayed n the web browser.

I don't want this, i want to send the PDF to a printer directly not to preview it first

Hello,

Please clarify, is the printer connected on the client side or on the server side?

Thank you.

Hello,

Due to the browser security limitations, in the web browsers, it is not possible to send printers settings in print dialog menu.

Thank you.
