Is there a way to not have the Print Dialog pop up when I print to printer (using PrintReport method) using the CR Report Viewer? I need the report to print to the default printer without user clicking the OK button. Is there some other way to print a Crystal reports without using the Report Viewer?

This is a windows applicaton developed in Visual Studio .net, VB.net.

Not sure about the PrintReport method (have no reference material here) but using th eRDC there is a parameter that when set false prints automatically

crRpt.PrintOut False

The viewer sends a printbuttonclicked event notification just override the default and print the report as you desire

C++ example

BEGIN_EVENTSINK_MAP(Dlg, CDialog)
      ON_EVENT(Dlg, IDC_CRVIEWER1, 409, PrintButtonClickedCrviewer1, VTS_PBOOL)
END_EVENTSINK_MAP()

void Dlg::PrintButtonClickedCrviewer1(BOOL* UseDefault)
{
      *UseDefault=FALSE;

      //Your print code here
}

Hi fruffing

for your second question you can use
 Cr1.Destination = crptToPrinter
 Cr1.Action=1

this way you can print without viewing report.

Parsi - that won't work with CR.Net since CR.Net doesn't support the OCX.

Are you using the Crystal Reports Enterprise edition or just the one built into Visual Studio 2003?

I was trying to use the one built into VS 2003. I have since put the OCX from CR8 onto the form and am using that. Works fine. Found that solution elsewhere on the net with a google search. thanks for the help, all.
