    [activereports_archive]Hi, we have developed over a hundred reports but we are in need of disabling the print button until all pages of a report are loaded as if a user click’s print prior to the report being loaded, only a certain number of pages are fed to the printer. Can this be done programatically using c# via code behind or javascript?[/activereports_archive]

    Is it a windows application or web application / website. If it is a web application / website then please let me know which viewertype you are using so that I can provide you the relevant code for achieving that.

    has the following version information in our web.config

    ActiveReports6, Version=6.1.2577.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=CC4967777C49A3FF[/activereports_archive]

    [activereports_archive]We are using the activex control which is causing the issue. [/activereports_archive]

    [activereports_archive]We have discovered a workaround using the following javascript function to show the previously hidden print button.

    It seems that the javascript code was not posted. Can you please copy it into a text file and then upload it with your post?

    Also let us know the ViewerType for the WebViewer of ActiveReports6 you are using in the web application.[/activereports_archive]

    I know this thread is very very old. But I’m new to grapecity and just learning. I too needed to disable the print button for specific reports. After lots of searching I finally found a quick and easy way to do it. Just add this code to your form load: vwrPreviewReport.Toolbar.ToolStrip.Items.RemoveAt(2); Reference this page to know what the index number is for the toolstrip control you would like to remove: Customize the Viewer ToolStrip | ActiveReports 16 .NET Edition
