Print preview: "Print" pane
Overview
The print preview allows the end user to view his report before printing it.
The "Print" pane allows the user to configure the direct print on the selected printer. Then, the print can be started via the "Start the print" button.
The different options

Printer

You have the ability to select the printer to use from the list of available printers. The "Printer properties" option is used to open the configuration window of the selected printer.

Parameters

Among the print settings, you have the ability to configure:
  • The print in color or in black and white.
    If the "Color" or "Black and white" option is selected, the print is performed either in color, or in black and white. The display below the print preview is modified. The printer configuration is not modified. The print preview is performed in color, regardless of the printer capabilities and configuration. Therefore, the end user benefits from the report colors even if the default printer is a black and white printer.
    The "Color/Black and white" radio button of the preview is positioned when opening the preview according to the printer settings:
    • if the selected printer is a "black and white" printer, the "Black and white" option is selected,
    • if the selected printer is a "color" printer, the "Color" option is selected,
    • if the selected printer is a "color" printer but if it is configured for "black and white", the "Black and white" option is selected.
    Similarly, if a new printer is selected in the preview, the "Color/Blanc and white" radio button is repositioned according the characteristics of the new printer.
    The physical print started from the preview is performed while taking the "Color/Black and white" radio button into account: the choice of the end user has priority over the printer settings.
    Any change of the "Color/Black and white" option is applied to the current preview only:
    • the printer settings are not modified,
    • the next preview will reposition the "Color/Black and white" option according to the printer settings.
  • The print in duplex mode.
    If the "Duplex" option is selected, the print is performed in duplex mode. The printer configuration is not modified. The "Duplex" option corresponds to the parameters of the printer. If these options are modified in the print preview, only the printer setting is modified.
  • The report orientation, the paper format, ...: A combo box can be displayed, allowing the user to choose the orientation of his report, the paper format, ... This combo box can appear:
