Eliminating the Start Button on a NT PDF report
« on: January 13, 2018, 04:33:37 PM »
Hi there,
Following pushing the Start Button( as prescribed), I now have the pdf preview appearing on the Form and able to be printed...
I would really like to be able to simplify  this by:
1. eliminating the start button from the form and embedding it instead, and
2. printing the resulting PDF to the default printer automatically, without selecting the "print: on the report preview

Is  there a way please?

(I have tried calling the report from within the code but that throws an access violation error)
Many thanks
Regards,
Richard.

Hi Richard,

You can set the Start button to auto-start and set the css of the but to ' nt-hidden' to hide it.

Regarding 2, the user will always get the printer dialog, there's no way around that as far as I know.

cheers
