Unable to specify Paper Type (i.e. Special Paper) with CR for VS2010


Hi there

I am printing a Crystal Report through code using the Crystal SDK for VS2010.

The report is sent to a specific tray and I need to also set the Paper Type as the printer tray is configured as Special Paper.

The report is first loaded as a ReportDocument, then I find and set the PaperSource via the PrintOptions.CustomPaperSource property.

I then print via PrintToPrinter.

The report is sent to the correct tray but user intervention is required on the printer for every print job to confirm that this tray can be used as the paper type sent to the printer is 'Plain Paper' and the printer tray is configured as 'Special Paper'.

I've not been able to figure out how to set the Paper Type on the report.

Does anyone know how to do this?
