WebClientPrint 2.0 for ASP.NET CORE just released!

We’re glad to announce the release of WebClientPrint 2.0 for ASP.NET CORE

ASP.NET CORE is on the way and with this WebClientPrint release we’re bringing the client-side plugin-free printing features of our product to this brand new cross platform Web development technology.

Getting Started with WebClientPrint for ASP.NET CORE

 

Add Chrome print support in ASP.NET Crystal Report Viewer and more!

Crystal Report Viewer allows you to do client printing if using Internet Explorer or Firefox but this is not supported for Chrome. In our new walkthrough How to add Custom Printing options to ASP.NET Crystal Reports Viewer toolbar we give you a clean solution for client-side printing on all three major browsers supported by Crystal Reports Viewer. You’ll learn how to add a drop-down-list of the printers available at the client-side and change the Print button behavior on CrystalReportViewer Toolbar allowing your users to print their reports to the Default Printer or any other installed printer without displaying any dialog!

Customize ASP.NET ReportViewer toolbar with cross-browser print button

In ASP.NET, the ReporViewer control does not support client-side printing if the target browser is Chrome, Firefox or any other one that does not come from MS. That’s because built-in printing mechanism (RSPrintClient.cab) is based on ActiveX which is only supported by Internet Explorer. In our new walkthrough How to add Cross-Browser Printing to ASP.NET ReportViewer toolbar we provide a nice solution by customizing the ReportViewer toolbar with a drop-down-list of the printers available at the client-side and a Print button that works with all main browsers for Windows OS i.e. Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera & Safari!

And you want it to work with Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Opera & Safari? Take a look at our new article about How to Print an ASP.NET Local Report RDLC without Preview or Printer Dialog by using our WebClientPrint for ASP.NET solution
