public void SetupBeforePrint(

    SortProperty[] sortProperty,
    bool canApplySortProperty


Name Type Description
report XtraReport

An XtraReport object that specifies the report.

parametersObject ReportParametersObjectBase

A ReportParametersObjectBase object that specifies report parameters.

criteria CriteriaOperator

A CriteriaOperator object used to filter data.

true, if the criteria can be applied; otherwise, false.

sortProperty SortProperty[]

An array of SortProperty objects which specifies data sorting.

canApplySortProperty Boolean

If you want to print a report in code, you should use the SetupBeforePrint method that executes the ReportDataSourceHelper.SetupReport method and triggers the ReportDataSourceHelper.BeforeShowPreview event.

If there is no need to apply criteria, sorting, and pass report parameters, use another overload of the SetupBeforePrint method that takes the single report parameter. An example of using this overload is provided in the How to: Print a Report Without Displaying a Preview topic.
