I have a SSRS report with a  textbox that has information in it that I want to display on the users screen but do not want that text box information to show up on the printed report (if user clicks ssrs print icon).

Can I somehow prevent this textbox info from showing up on the printed report?

    Can you define a css class for the text box. if so you can hide it with css.

    (Hide an Item when printing w/ css)
