    Posted: 16 Jul 2010 at 4:41am
I've designed a crystal report that will be sent to a specific (barcode) printer through a web interface. Allowing the report to be generated in the standard crystal report viewer was causing issues, so I am now using the code-behind to send the report directly to the printer.

ReportDocument Report = new ReportDocument();                     
ParameterDiscreteValue Order = new ParameterDiscreteValue();

Order.Value = Convert.ToInt32(txtOrder);
Report.Load(reportPath);
Report.SetParameterValue("OrderNo", Order);

PageMargins margins;
margins = Report.PrintOptions.PageMargins;
margins.bottomMargin = 0;
margins.leftMargin = 0;
margins.rightMargin = 0;
margins.topMargin = 0;

Report.PrintOptions.ApplyPageMargins(margins);
Report.PrintOptions.PrinterName = "\\\\printserver\\Zebra Z6M Plus (300dpi)";              
Report.PrintToPrinter(1, false, PageNum, PageNum);

Report.Close();


When printed from the designer (CRXI) everything works fine but when the web interface sends the job to a printer (any printer) it changes the font to Times New Roman which messes up all of the field sizes. If I use the standard .NET report viewer it uses the correct font (but the barcodes get messed up), so I'm pretty sure the change is being caused by creating/using the ReportDocument.

How can I send the report directly to a print without it defaulting the fonts back to Times New Roman?

I am currently hosting the web interface on my local development PC, so I know the font is installed and can print correctly to the printer.

I ended up having to change to a different font to get it working. It still doesn't print the same as what shows in the designer, but I was able to adjust the fields so that they printed the way I want them too...even though they don't look right in the designer.

I've had the similar problem and I considered this to be the fonts problem. Anyway, I also not have much experience on the .net barcode reader and don't know to much on the using of barcode software.
