Francesco 1 Reputation point

Hi, I have this simple code in an page, in c #:

            ReportDocument rprt = new ReportDocument();
            rprt.PrintToPrinter(1, false, 0, 0);

But it doesn't print, it doesn't give any errors, nothing happens. Why?

    Hi @Francesco ,

    According to the simple code you provided, I'm not sure how you want to print it, on the server side or on the client page?

    If it is on the server side, I am not sure if you have related settings for PrintOptions, such as specifying the printer name. If you are using the default printer, is the printer properly connected to the machine?

    You could also refer to this article for more details: Troubleshooting issues related to PrintToPrinter() when used in .NET applications for printing Crystal Reports

    But if you want to print on the client page, I think this is not possible. Because the pritning functionality of Crystal which is based on ActiveX cannot be used or is not supported by the client browser. You could use the print feature in right-click of mouse in client page.

    Best regards,
    Xudong Peng
