Cannot print to printer a report with allowprinttofile set to true

Delphi 10.1 + RB 20.03

create a new report
put a label in the header band
set report.allowprinttofile=true
save the report

preview it to the screen
you can export it to PDF
but you cannot print it to printer

thank for the fix

    Hi Julien,

    Following your steps above, I was unable to recreate this behavior. Are you using a custom print dialog?

    ReportBuilder 20 introduced an updated print dialog which now separates between exporting to file and printing to the printer. This is controlled by the side-bar on the left. See the screenshot below.


    Also, the preview toolbar now contains a new Export button next to the Print button to open the appropriate dialog option automatically.

  • Hi Nico,

    it's our fault
    an old piece of code that's no longer in use

    Thank you very much
