printing a report from within a service application
Posted on 2003-02-27
Before turning to rave reports I tried using TPrinter, but this doesn't seem to work because the service has no Tform ?
Then I tried the rave thingies and managed to save some pdf files and also the preview is working, but when I try to print on paper (by setting the DefaultDest property from TRvSystem to rdPrinter) it doesn't work anymore. In fact it seems the app is hanging after that.
I got no problems in a normal application (containing a form).
Now I wonder if it's possible for a service (application) to print some report.
My service app is written in D7.
Can anyone help me to get a printout on paper from within a service ?
thanks in advance,
