Hi,

I have a project in Delphi 4 using Crystal Report IReport.

The printer of the IReport is the Windows default printer but I want to be able to select any printer.

Please provide code !

Are you trying to print directly from Delphi or do you preview the report first?

If you preview the report first you should be able to change the printer when you print from the preview screen.

Does the following solve your problem?

In VB there is a property on the CR control which can be set
CR_Object.PrinterName = MyPrinter

Delphi I am sure has something similar.

Your printer selection for the running app is storeed in the printer index. All you need to do is drop TPrintDialog, then fire it with

printdialog1.execute;

User changes to the selection in the dialog will effect your application for as long as it is running, and accross forms. As long as your reports are not hardcoded to a printer and are instead using the default, you should be fine.

If you want to hardcode the printer (not a wise choice), then set the Tcrpe.printer as needed in code and fire directly the printer.
