Print RPT file with c#


I am using PrintOutputController method to print RPT file.

For some reason, the text has issues with Right to left and alignments.

What can cause this scenario?

I am using CR 13 sp21

By the way, when i use direct print (reportDocument.PrintToPrinter(1, false, 0, 0), it comes fine but i takes 30 seconds to finish.

    Hi Natalie,

    I escalated your case to R&D:

    B1 Incident 84098 / 2018 / CR Print label using c# alignment issue

    KBA - 2608379 - When printing Right To Left fields using the PrintOutPutController in a Cr for VS .NET application it is ignored and prints left justified.

    Should be fixed in SP 23 due out end of May.

    Same behavior even when printing to a PDF printer? Yes, that means a manual dialog in the middle, but this is just for troubleshooting.
    If so, please upload the rpt with saved data so it would be possible to replicate.

    Hi Ido, thanks for the answer.

    1) Exporting to PDF is just fine.

    2) Printing using native method: reportDocument.PrintToPrinter(1,false, 0, 0), is just fine (but VERY slow).

    By Using PrintOutputController, it is printing fast , but the alignment nor RTL (right to left) is getting messy..

    I am not able to upload here, it block RPT files.

    This is my code:

    ISCDReportClientDocument rptClientDoc;

    PrintOutputController printout;

    PrintReportOptions rasprint = new PrintReportOptions();

    CrystalDecisions.Shared.PrintLayoutSettings PrintLayout = new CrystalDecisions.Shared.PrintLayoutSettings();

    rptClientDoc = reportDocument.ReportClientDocument;

    printout = rptClientDoc.PrintOutputController;

    rasprint.PrinterName = printerName;
