We have a bunch of reports that render really nice in color. Of course not all colors print well in black and white.

Is there a way to strip the colors when the report is actually sent to the printer?

I'm not aware of any 'print only in black and white' property, but you could create an extra parameter @print, where 1=printing and 0=viewing, and in every control that has a BackgroundColor other than 'Automatic', 'Black', or 'White', enter this as a fill color expression

=IIF(Parameters!print.Value = 1, "Black", "The Screen Color")

Good luck.

Hum, I'll try that.

I was hoping to come up with something that would go in "Report Properties, Code".
You see I have buttons in a Delphi app, that render report(s). Then the user prints using the print button in the browser.

As yet I have not figured out how do automate printing directly from the Delphi app.

Thank you for looking at this!
