I have an old program in delphi 5. The reports are made with qrdesign and although I can preview them and then manually save them as a pdf, I would like to have a code that directly creates a pdf file from the report without making the user have to type anything at all.

Are you wanting to programmatically control qrdesign or write your own PDF creation routine?

At the moment I am clicking a button which which calls ReportDesignerDialog1.printreport(ExtractFilePath(ParamStr(0))+'form1.QR2'); This gives me a preview of the form1.qr2, I can manually save that preview as a pdf or print it to a virtual pdf printer.

What I would like is that button to create and save the pdf file without asking me anything at all. I would give it the path and the file name as parameters and the pdf file would be saved in the given folder with the given name.

Dont just call ReportDesigerDialog.
All report designer have a method to print it directly with out preview.
This is an example by quickreport to export report to pdf  and excel.
You can surely use this
procedure TForm9.Button3Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  // Export report to a PDF document
  gtPDFEngine1.FileName := 'eDoc_Quickreport_Demo.pdf';
  gtPDFEngine1.Preferences.ShowSetupDialog := false;
  gtQRExportInterface1.Engine := gtPDFEngine1;
  gtQRExportInterface1.RenderDocument(QRPQuickrep1, false);

  // Export report to a Excel workbook
  gtExcelEngine1.FileName := 'eDoc_Quickreport_Demo.xls';
  gtExcelEngine1.Preferences.ShowSetupDialog := false;
  gtQRExportInterface2.Engine := gtExcelEngine1;
  gtQRExportInterface2.RenderDocument(QRPQuickrep1, false);
end;
