1580923 - Crystal Reports viewer for VS .NET ignores selection of page range when using the print dialog


  • Page range entered into the Crystal Reports viewer print dialog is ignored

Reproducing the Issue

  • Create a multi-page report
  • Create a Windows application that displays the report in the Crystal Reports viewer for VS .NET 2003
  • Run the application and click on the Print button in the viewer toolbar
  • In the Print dialog, enter a page range - for example pages 2-3
  • Instead of pages 2 and 3, the whole report will be printed


  1. Hide the viewer print button (CrystalReportViewer1.ShowPrintButton = False)
  2. Use the .PrintToPrinter method to select the page range and print the report
  • The above is a work-around only
  • The issue has been escalted for a resolution
  • ADAPT01539143
  • Update, August 25, 2011
  • This escalation was rejected by R&D
  • Reason; Not a Crystal Reports problem
  • Explanation:

This is a MS framework 1.1 issue. An application (attached) not using the Crystal Reports APIs exhibits the same issue.
The same application using 2.0 framework works as expected.
