Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v18.2.Web.WebForms.dll


public bool PrintUsingAdobePlugIn { get; set; }
Public Property PrintUsingAdobePlugIn As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description


true, to print a report using the Adobe Reader® plug-in; otherwise, false.


The printing engine of a client web browser is capable of overriding a document's print settings (such as paper kind, margins, etc.), which makes it impossible to guarantee consistent printing for any report.

To secure consistent printing results, as well as avoid having to evaluate the print settings prior to each printing operation, consider installing the Adobe Reader® plug-in in all client web browsers. To ensure that all of a report's print settings remain intact by the time the Print dialog is invoked, this browser plug-in first converts a report to PDF and then prints the resulting file.

To seek this plug-in each time a web report is committed to print, enable the PrintUsingAdobePlugIn property.
