Quickreport page size problem

Hi all,

I am trying to change a quickrep page size at runtime in Delphi 5. It previews correctly, but when I print it, it cuts the report A4. How do I change this ? I need to print a custom page size for labels.
The Printer Drivers dont give me a page size which is is the same as the one I am using, so I cannot set this up in Windoes either. Any ideas ?

As you said, simply your printer driver is not supporting the requested paper size, how do you want then to print it ?!? Probably a solution is to check on the web site of ypur printer manifacturer is there is an updated driver for the printer, or call the technical support.

Thanx for the comment :) The printer driver is the only one available. Why does quickreports allow you to change the report page size, if it has no effect ? I have checked the windows driver, and it actually does not matter what size paper you select, it still cuts off as A4.

Ask QUSOFT AS :) I believe it is a good idea thet the QReport is allowing you to change the page size as you want, when it is not working in you computer with your printer driver, it will probably work in another computer with another printer driver, don't you think so ?
This is again the reason why you can develop a WinNT/2000/XP service application on Win9x for example ...
