Setting Margins In ReportViewer

Nov 7, 2006

I use Report Viewer to create a report with display records from a database. I have a lot of data to display for each line, but the margin settings are limiting me. If I go to the Page Setup tab in Report viewer(Run time), I can set the margins to 1 (left and right) , and it displays my full line nicely. How can I programatically set the margins to 1 during loading of the form?

VS 2005 - How To Set Margins To Print Out Image Of Form

Apr 20, 2009

As part of this project I'm doing for VB class I'm required to print out an image of the form. Anyways, the form is exactly 1024 x 780 so I have it set to landscape to fit better, but it still hangs off by an inch or so on the top and left margins. Here where I got the code from [URL]. I tried going under .DefaultPrintSettings and using Offset and Margins but changing them did nothing. I should also add that I know my printer can't print on every part of a page and that some of the image will be cut off, but I have been able to print within 1/2 inch of the edge of the paper before and when I print the form image it cuts it of at like 1 1/2 inches.

Find Hard Margins Of A Printer?

Jun 3, 2011

I searched many pages but unfortunately found nothing. In fact the problem is Printable Area. Microsoft says: The printable area of a page varies from printer to printer and is not guaranteed to be symmetrical.

Does anybody have any code VBáwhich will print a 1cm x 1cm box on a page which is located 1cm from the top andáleft edages of the paper for any printer?

I think the answer to the question depends on finding hard margins of the printer.

Printing With Minimum Margins Specified By The Printer?

Nov 1, 2009

I want to utilize the maximum paper area (A4 size sheet). Therefore I must get the minimum margins that specific printer can handle. I have more printers attached to th pc, so I can not hardcode these values. I have tried to set margins to zero, but that results in printing outside the page at right side and bottom:

PrintDocument1.DefaultPageSettings.Margins.Left = 0
PrintDocument1.DefaultPageSettings.Margins.Top = 0
PrintDocument1.DefaultPageSettings.Margins.Right = 0
PrintDocument1.DefaultPageSettings.Margins.Bottom = 0

So my question is: is it possible to read the selected printers minimum margins without have to open a PageSetupDialog, and therefore make it possible to utilize maximum printing area with code only?

Printing Full Page - Margins Off At Top Left

Feb 7, 2009

I am trying to print a full page of lines, labels, and variables to match a physical form that I have. When I go to print the form, everything is moved down and to the right. I have tried to set the margins to 0 and have also tried OrginsAtMargins but neither have corrected the problem. So basically, I am trying to get the margins to be set at 0 so I can use the whole 8.5x11 (minus a little on the sides; about .25 of a inch) to print. What is weird is the print preview is fine but when it prints it's down and the right. So getting it so it prints how it does in print preview would be great. [URL].

Programatically Set Margins In Report Viewer Control?

Jan 18, 2010

In onw of our application, we have some reports that need very specific margins that are dependant of the printer the user have. It is used to print into preformated paper with blanks to fill and depending of the printer, the printing is off by some margins. To make things worse, we don't actually control what printer is used because it is not an internal application.

The only solution I could think of is to let the user configure the margins somehow. I though I could just dinamycally change the report margins like I did with datasources and actual report ( I have one control that is used to display every reports from my application and it works alright), but I can't seem to find that damn property to do so. There is a margin property on the report viewer but it's for the form display so it doesn't cut it.What I was thinking to do is to define the margins before the user loads the report, i.e. when he clicks on the report button, I load the report, set the margins (or vice-versa is necessary) and then display it.

Before someone mention it, I know the user can, once the report is loaded, change the page setup to fit his needs, but this has two drawbakcs. First one is that it is not saved each time and I need it to be 'saveable' and by users. The second one is that Report viewer seems to have some bugs when the regional setting aren't set to what it's expecting and we can't force the users to changes their setting to accomodate one application.

VS 2010 Printer Co-ordinates In Relation To Margins

May 22, 2012

If I use the following code to draw a rectange, do the values inserted into 'fromleft' & 'fromtop' set a co-ordinate from the top/left corner of the paper or from the top/left corner of the margins.

Dim R As Rectangle
Dim across As Integer = 5
Dim down As Integer = 13

[Code]....

The reason I am asking this question is because I am trying to print labels so the position of the labels on the sheet are fixed. When the printer is set to papersize = letter the first label is in the correct position but when I change it to A4 the first label has moved 4mm to the right. With the margins set to 0 I still cant get it justified correctly. The printer is obviosly capable of printing 4mm from the left because it does so when set to 'letter'. Can't use letter because I need the extra length of A4 for the bottom row of labels.

Setting Variables To Store User Setting For Applications

Feb 13, 2012

In our projects we use setting variables to store user setting for the applications. Moreover, with every latest version of the applications, we upgrade these variables to retain user settings.Normally, this works fine, but recently one of my end user reported an error i.e.Configuration System failed to initialize". The error is related to user.config file. Therefore we requested the user to send us his file.After received the folder, we noticed that it contains 3 files (3begfjb.newcfg,3begfjb.tmpŁ and user. configŁ). 3begfjb.tmpŁ is an empty file, while 3begfjb.newcfgŁ and user.configŁ are identical files. We tried to open these files but the data in user.config isn't proper xml rather its unreadable formatted file.Do any you guys had experienced this sort of issue or any ideas how and what may have created these files and corrupted user.config file.

Vb Mail Order - Calculating The Percentages - Print Button Allows The User To Print The Form

Apr 8, 2011

I have been able to do the exercise's in the first 2 chapters and half the exercise's in the third chapter of the text book (programming in visual basic 2008, Julia Case Bradley & Anita C. Millspaugh). but this one is making my head want to explode. please point me in the right direction with this.

Heres the problem. The company has instituted a bonus program to give its employees an incentive to sell more. For every dollar the store makes in a four-week period, the employees receive 2 percent of sales. The amount of bonus each employee receives is based upon the percentage of hours he or she worked during the bonus period (a total of 160 hours). The Calculate button will determine the bonus earned by this employee, and the Clear button will clear only the name, hours-worked, and bonus amount fields. A Print button allows the user to print the form. Do not allow missing or bad input data to cancel the program; instead display a message to the user.

Here's my code so far. its giving me the wrong results. i have tried many different ways,(hence the commented code) but I just dont know where im going wrong.

Const BONUSHOURS As Decimal = 160

VS 2010 : Print/Print Preview Of Records From A Database/DatabaseDataSet Source?

Dec 14, 2011

My instructor told us how to print documents and how to use databases. What the instructor did not mention is how to print or print a preview of records within a DatabaseDataSet. The book "Programming in Visual Basic 2010" does not explain how to print or do a print preview of Database Source records from within a form. The only thing I was told was to test the print document first before you try to do a print preview. Within a form I used a DataGridView to add, delete, and update the database. So now all I need to do is figure out how to print the updated records from the DataGridView and how to print a preview of the records within the DataGridView. So I hope my question is clear enough to give me assistance on how I can perform these two actions. Thanks this would be a great help, and since the class is online we can get assistance from any sources that we have.
