PrintDialog in CR Viewer with PrintMode "PrintOutputController" has "Current Page" always disabled

I use CR VS2010 with SP18.

When I configure the CR Viewer with its PrintMode property to "PrintOutputController", and I click on the print button, the print dialog opens. Here the "Current Page" option button is always greyed out.

With PrintMode set to "PrintToPrinter" everything's fine.

Any ideas? A Bug?

Tx,

Patrick

    FYI: this behavior was corrected in SP19.

    Hi Patrick,

    It's a limitation of the communication between the Viewer, the Engine and the PrintControl dll.

    I'll ask DEV if they can enable it again but I don't believe we can....

    A little bit strange, it's a drawback for PrintMode PrintOutputController. A customer pointed it out...

    What is the internal reason? Should we go back to PrintMode P2P?

    Tx,

    Hi Patrick,

    QA remembers some reason also but he's checking with DEV to look into the code to see why it was not enabled.

    I'll let you know when I get an update.

    Hi Patrick,

    I sent them a reminder to ask DEV again.

    Hi Patrick,

    We tried this before, see this KBA -

    2196829 - ER - Enable ability to set Destination and Type properties to print and export the current tab selected in the CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms.CrystalReportViewer control

    They said it could not be done but they tried to do it for both WEB and WINForm. Howard is going to have another look at it.

    Thanks again

    Don
