Here is how you can print a report with code in AX 2009:
RecordSortedList list = new RecordSortedList(55);
SELECT firstonly custConfirmJour order by ConfirmID desc where custConfirmJour.SalesId == salesTable.SalesId ;
args = new Args(ReportStr(SalesConfirm));
printJobSettings = new PrintJobSettings();
salesFormLetter = new SalesFormLetter_Confirm(true);
reportRun = new ReportRun(args);
The code is running fine except on problem that instead of sending the report directly on printer, print preview is coming.
Since you’re not sending in an reference to any printer, it would have to use the default printer, which might very well be Microsoft XPS or some display capable printer.
I had to send in the printersetting to the report (SalesInvoice) and add some code to sniff out any sent printersetting. Otherwise, the report will use whatever printersetting that applies to that type of report. Getting that to work enabled me to pass in various printersettings, like Email, PDF, etc, etc… 🙂
If you do not know the device that the user has set up as the default printer then it will always print to the default printer. If your default settings are to print to screen (even though you selected Print Medium::Printer) it will still go to screen. I would think that you should select PrintMedium::Screen and have it always go to screen so that the user can select a printer, otherwise they may not know where the report printed (I have some users that have odd choices as their default printer, which may be across the building).
public void run()
args = new Args(reportstr(“PwC_ExciseInvoice_Sales”));
counter = 1;
pjs = new printJobSettings();
while(counter <= maxReports)
report = new ReportRun(args);
Through this code, I am calling a report Thrice (variable maxReports), everytime it is going directly to the printer.
