Using Ireport PrintOut() function in Delphi

I've avoided using the Ireport PrintOut() function till now because I hate its parameter requirements, which need you to specify starting and ending pages of the report being printed.

Now that I have to, how do I use it, ensuring that all the pages, of a varying length report, will be printed?

I envy VB user who can simply go...

> crRpt.PrintOut False

If you try to do this in Delphi, you get a > Not enough actual parameters <  [Error]. You are forced to supply all the parameters even to parameters you want to remain untouched.

Wow, that is annoying (I'm looking at their 'SCR8_Delphi_RDC_ADO' sample).  We use the VCL with Delphi 5 with no problems.

I'll play around with the RDC for a bit and see if I can come up with something.

Well, I can't find a way around passing all of the parameters, but this seems to work for me as a way to get all of the pages to print:

  Report.PrintOut(false, 1, true, 1, Report.PrintingStatus.NumberOfPages)
