Has anyone found a good way to print reports from flex 3.0?  The data would be dynamic and vary in length.  Would need page breaks and headers on all pages.  Have access to Crystal reports but wasn't sure if flex would call reports.

This would be for a desktop application if that matters.  Looked into FlexReport but did not fully understand how if would fit also, saw many issues on google blogs.

Printing has always been Adobe Flex's weakness and the best Flex can do is send a BitMap image to the printer.

I would suggest generating a PDF from Flex and using that for print. You can use the AlivePDF Flex Component: http://alivepdf.bytearray.org/

Tks for the help.  Decide to purchase ColdFusion 8 and use the ColdFusion 8 report builder.  More expensive but easier at this time.
