The different options


The report viewer allows you to select the printer:
  • For printouts based on an report (created via the report editor or Reports & Queries), you can select the printer to use from the list of available printers displayed.
  • For programmed printouts (made with the WLanguage print functions), only the printer by Default is proposed (or the printer previously selected with the iConfigure function).
Remark: When a printout is launched from the report viewer by selecting another printer than the one by Default, this printer will be kept:
  • on subsequent printouts live or via the report viewer,
  • until the next call of the iReset function
The "Printer properties" option is used to open the configuration window of the selected printer.


Among the print settings, you have the ability to configure:
  • The print in color or in black and white.
    The report viewer shows the print preview with colors, regardless of the printer capabilities and configuration. Thus, even if the default printer is a black and white printer, the print colors are displayed in the viewer.
    When the viewer is opened, the "Color/Black and white" radio button is positioned 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 report viewer, the "Color/Black and white" radio button is repositioned according the characteristics of the new printer.
    The "Color/Black and white" radio button is used to define the physical print launched from the viewer: 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.
    The "Duplex" option corresponds to the parameters of the printer. If these options are modified in the report viewer, only the printer setting is modified.
  • The report orientation, the paper format, ...: A combo box can be displayed to choose the orientation of the document, the paper size, ...
    This combo box can appear:
