Click the print button for the Crystal report viewer, printing works well on firefox or chrome, but not IE.
you will see the loading screen , maybe forever.
Why? basically, for the crystal report, it has one mode called Activex.
- When the property is set to PrintMode.PDF, the report is exported as a PDF on the Web server, and then streamed to the browser. The user is given the option to print directly to the printer. This option is cross-platform compatible.
- When the property is set to PrintMode.ActiveX, an ActiveX printing control allows users to print the report directly to their local printer.
since only IE supports the activex mode, so the good news is that you can print the report directly to printers, the bad news , for wahtever reason, maybe the user can’t install the activex client.
if you didn’t see this , you will see the loading screen there forever,which is studip.
