Overview
When printing a report by programming or using iPrint, it is now possible to request the use of a mini preview instead of the traditional preview.
To do so, simply use the constant iMiniPreview with iPreview or iDestination.
Example:
// Open the mini preview
iPreview(iMiniPreview)
iPrint(RPT_ProductList)
The mini-preview window is as follows:

Comments
Sorry
iMiniPreview is definitely not an adequate replacement of iPreview as suggested. Btw, iMiniPreview shows the same problems like iPreview does when the paper format is changed between portrait and landscape and back. iViewer can be used for reports only.

A destination => PDF is quite OK and the PDF-Viewer shows any changes between portrait and landscape in a perfect manner! The only downside is the unavoidable creation of a PDF-document which has to be deleted after viewing the PDF.
