    To add code to the Web Form to export a report to PDF

    1. Double-click on the design view of the aspx page. This creates an event-handling method for the Page_Load event.
    2. Add code like the following to the Page_Load event.

    To write the code in Visual Basic.NET

    Visual Basic.NET code. Paste INSIDE the Page Load event.
    Copy Code
    Dim m_stream As New System.IO.MemoryStream()
    Dim rpt As New GrapeCity.ActiveReports.SectionReport
    Dim xtr As New System.Xml.XmlTextReader("\SectionReport1.rpx")
    rpt.LoadLayout(xtr)
    xtr.Close()
    rpt.Run()
    Dim PdfExport1 As New GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Export.Pdf.Section.PdfExport
    PdfExport1.Export(rpt.Document, m_stream)
    m_stream.Position = 0
    Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
    Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=MyExport.pdf")
    Response.BinaryWrite(m_stream.ToArray())
    Response.End()
    

    To write the code in C#

    C# code. Paste INSIDE the Page Load event.
    Copy Code
    System.IO.MemoryStream m_stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream();
    GrapeCity.ActiveReports.SectionReport rpt = new GrapeCity.ActiveReports.SectionReport();
    System.Xml.XmlTextReader xtr = new System.Xml.XmlTextReader(Server.MapPath("") + "\\SectionReport1.rpx");
    rpt.LoadLayout(xtr);
    xtr.Close();
    rpt.Run();
    GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Export.Pdf.Section.PdfExport pdfExport1 = new GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Export.Pdf.Section.PdfExport();
    pdfExport1.Export(rpt.Document, m_stream);
    Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
    Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "inline;filename=MyExport.pdf");
    Response.BinaryWrite(m_stream.ToArray());
    Response.End();

    Note: To use the one-touch printing option, add the following to the code above.

    Visual Basic.NET code. Paste INSIDE the Page Load event.
    Copy Code
    pdfExport1.Options.OnlyForPrint = True
