DevExpress Printing System to Printing System 4: Undeclared identifier: 'Close'

The exact code where the error occurs:
dxComponentPrinter1.PreviewWindow.Close;

Component name:
TdxComponentPrinter

The Error:
[Error] z_BuyOut.pas(3819): Undeclared identifier: 'Close'

Thoughts:
Again, I can't simply comment out the line, I need to fix it.. And apparently there's no 'Close' in the PreviewWindow property list, any solution?

Thanks.

The dxComponentPrinter should have an event called OnAfterPreview.

Hope this helps!

What's the usage of that event? I just wanna make the preview window close.

Oh, I'm sorry - I misunderstood your question.  I thought you were trying to trigger something when the preview window closed, not trying to close the preview window itself.

Is there a reason you're calling the preview in the first place (ie, do you not want a preview at all)?

After researching a bit, you should be able to use the following:

dxComponentPrinter1.PreviewWindow.Release;

Be SURE when calling the Preview, to NOT call it as modal (after the release, it doesn't return focus back to your main form).  In other words, use the following to call the preview:

dxComponentPrinter1.Preview(False);

Hope this helps!

You can try it this way:

TCustomdxPSPreviewWindow(dxComponentPrinter1.PreviewWindow).Close;
