Hi Experts
I would like to print my crystal report to non default printer on my machine.
I have tried the following codes
    CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = mrptDoc
        mrptDoc.PrintOptions.PrinterName = printer_selected

      CrystalReportViewer1.PrintReport()

Open in new window


printer_selected is non default printer, but it still prints to default printer.

Thanks

Can you set the printer for the viewer?

Try using the print method on the report object

mrptDoc.PrintToPrinter(1, false, 0, 0);

Public Overridable Sub PrintToPrinter(ByVal nCopies As Integer, ByVal collated As Boolean, ByVal startPageN As Integer, ByVal endPageN As Integer)


Parameters
nCopiesIndicates the number of copies to print.

collatedIndicates whether to collate the pages.

startPageNIndicates the first page to print.

endPageNIndicates the last page to print.

Remarks

To print all pages, set the startPageN and endPageN parameters to zero.
