Printing from a web application with VS 2010
Posted on 2011-10-16
I am trying to determine the best way to print reports from a web application when using VS 2010.
These will be form letters that will be sent by mail to customers as decisions are made about access to their account.
My boss prefers I do not use a third-party reporting tool if I can avoid it. We have just upgraded to VS 2010 and noticed a Printing category in the toolbox, but all the options below it are greyed out.
Is that because my project is a web application or is there some other reason?
What is the best approach for what we want to accomplish?
(Ideally, we would also like the user to be able to optionally preview a report before sending it to the user's default printer.)
Thanks in advance!
