Hi!

I have a TQuickReport component (myQR).
When calling myQR.Print, it alway prints to the default Windows Printer, even if before printing I set
myQR.Printer.PrinterIndex := 4; //(4 is just an example)
or
myQR.QRPrinter.PrinterIndex := 4;

Regards, Oli

Try using the ApplySettings method straight after you set the PrinterIndex (i.e. before you do anything else)

e.g.

Set the printer index
Use the ApplySettings method
Print your data

How?
None of these ones work:

myQr.ApplySettings;  //error
myQr.QRPrinter.ApplySettings;   //error
myQr.Printer.ApplySettings;   //error

.testing done!

All I had to do is:

myQr.PrinterSettings.PrinterIndex := 4;

This works.
Thanks for your help, Neil, it lead me to the right direction.

OK, you already received an answer.
I just wanted to tell you that you should use the QR.PrinterSettings and
not the QR.QRPrinter object.

I've made this mistake too .. ;)
