Printer preview/setup

edited July 2011 in General
Delphi XE, RB Version 12.02, Build 283

HP printer model 5200, 11 X 17 paper

Whenever a report is printed from Preview, the Device Setting 'Paper
Type' resets to 'Preprinted', which causes the user to do a manual
intervention before the report will print. This issue does NOT occur
when the report is sent straight to the printer, without Preview. Same
code block, only difference is the Preview.

May be a printer setting; just don't know at this point.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Ken,

    Where are you setting the "paper type"? In my testing with the latest
    version of ReportBuilder, setting the Report.PrinterSetup.PaperName to a
    different paper size than default (A4), stayed when printing from the
    preview and directly to the printer.

    Best Regards,
