Report Viewer Print Options

I have an asp.net page with a report viewer control on it.  The page works and the report does paint with a report tool bar.  The problem is the printer icon does not show up in the browser.  It does show the export button to make pdf and other documents.  Yet, sending the report directly to the printer is not an option.

I am looking for some code that will make that printer button visible at run time not just in the visual studio.  I would even take a work around solution using code behind in vb.

Hi,

The print button will be visible in IE,
For Firefox and mozilla you have to apply script which is clearly mentioned in the below link.

Hope this will help you....

I was using IE then added compatibility mode and it showed up.  The article you shared should drive me in the rest of way.
