Receipt Printing


I have problem printing to Citizen CBM 1000 thermal printer from Crystal report using VB .NET. Somehow its not adjusting width of the report. Its printing with same size like its printing to normal printer.
As per my believe this will handle by crystal report depending on printer driver. Or do i need to set the width and stuf while creating report?

Thanks.

How are you printing?

Did you design the report with the Citizen as the selected printer?
  Crystal uses the printer dirver to help build the report and changing the printer on the fly can cause trouble.  SUggest you open the report in the designer and select the Citizen as the printer.  You may have to then rebuild some of the report.

Width is set by the page/paper chosen for the printer.

No its not design with citizen as printer...

Is there any other solution without selecting right printer while designing?

Thanks.

Not really, because the designer uses the driver to determine many things like fonts, paper sizes, etc.

You don't have to have the printer itself available just load the driver and select it.  That is how I build our reports.  I load a dummy network printer using our standard LaserJet drivers.

I can do that too...but like we have different thermal printers in many stores. Also do i need to keep width of report smaller becuase of receipt printer to print is exact. Do i need to do anything while designing report to print properly on thermal receipt printer?

Thanks for youe help.

You may be able to choose the printer with the smallest width and use that.

If the print driver allows it you can also develop your own custom page size.
